A summary of the latest arrivals from the world of shock-resistant brand G-Shock. Here you will not find detailed descriptions, reviews, etc. – Only G-Shock watches, which officially went on sale [in a specific month]. If the series turned out to be colorful, we describe it in a separate publication on the blog and give a link to the text. New items may be in the global sale, and only in Japan. This is not always a new case, new color styles, other types of straps, etc. also get into the updates.

DW-5900RS and GA-100RS

What do neon colors usually associate with? Most often it is a club life, parties and night pastime. This applies primarily to active young people who prefer to spend time with friends in a nightclub with its bright neon lights and music in the style of techno. Why the 90s? Because it was during these years that the club movement was born and gained popularity in the form in which you and I perceive it.

 

GLX-6900SS и GWX-5700SS

The alternation of colors in the GLX-6900SS can be seen not only on the case, but also on the strap – thin stripes almost exactly repeat the pattern that nature has endowed with sea serpents. Perhaps you ask – where does the snake? This combination of colors scares the most dangerous and bloodthirsty predators in the water – sharks. Such patterns are often used by divers in their wetsuits – and this works not only with a “striped” pattern, but also a simple alternation of two different colors with an arbitrary pattern.

 

GLX-5600VH

The GLX-5600 and BLX-560 are very similar to each other – the classic square form factor, the digital display and, of course, the functionality for amateur surfers [lunar phase graph and tide sensor]. The pair meaning is clear – so that the young couple would look like one with the related bodies G-Shock and Baby-G. At the same time, the sports component does not fade into the background – sunny summer is closely connected with water sports, in particular, surfing.

 

GST-B200

It is no secret to anyone what advantages carbon has over the same polyurethane or steel – it is stronger and lighter, which means that the protective function of the watch will improve and the total weight will decrease. “A new step in the evolution of the strength of the G-Shock” is the name given to Casio’s offspring. Well, time will tell. All exterior parts of GST-B200 [bezel, buttons, screws, back cover] are made of steel – G-Steel, nevertheless.

90’s color Series

What do neon colors usually associate with? Most often it is a club life, parties and night pastime. This applies primarily to active young people who prefer to spend time with friends in a nightclub with its bright neon lights and music in the style of techno. Why the 90s? Because it was during these years that the club movement was born and gained popularity in the form in which you and I perceive it.

 

Clear Skeleton Series

And no friends, the Japanese have not run out of ideas, just a transparent format is quite popular in Djishok circles, so designers are trying to adapt their products to current trends in fashion. A transparent “skeleton” we call the format of the design, in which the inside of the watch is partially visible, and with a combination of metallic shades all this refers us to the pop culture of the 80s of the last century.

 

GA-2000

This time we will show you the military style of the GA-2000 series. It is a predictable event, because G-Shock is already synonymous with impact resistance, which is so appreciated in the military environment. It is clear, this is not only about the military audience, but also all fans of secretive style.

 

GMW-B5000

The GMW-B5000G-1 is very similar to the typical G representative, where only the black ionized case is surprisingly dark. Unlike the “shabby” representative at the watch exhibition in Basel [GMW-B5000V – vintage look with ionized case], today’s hero just loves a brilliant black color. Well, do not forget about the polymer strap, which in GMW-B5000 can be called a rare phenomenon [often it is still completely metal products]. We love the polymer strap in combination with a fully metal body, so there will be no negative.

 

GWR-B1000X-1A

So now the whole aviation division is divided into two epochs: before monocoque and after [almost as in ProTrek-ah – before the updated triple sensor and after]. At least, the Japanese are trying to convey this message, they say, strength and lightness have surpassed any indicators that have ever existed in the G-Shock space. Well, here you can not argue, carbon is really lighter, stronger and not afraid of rust. And the whole body structure is practically the limit of shock-resistant perfection in general [it seems to us].

 

March 2019

GA-2000

The concept of Carbon Core Guard came to GA-2000 – the inside of the case in which the module is located, is made of high-strength polyurethane with carbon reinforcement. In addition to enhanced strength characteristics, carbon is much lighter than polyurethane – the total weight of the 2000s is only 64 grams. For comparison, the same GA-100 weighs 70 grams. The dimensions of the case are also encouraging – 51.2 x 48.7 x 14.1 mm versus 55 x 51.2 x 16.9 for “hundredths”. The bezel, alas, is not carbonic – ordinary polyurethane.

 

GBA-800UC и GBD-800UC

Although the marsh colors are not the brightest in terms of attractiveness, they are definitely not overwritten, do not fade, and there are still many different “NOT”. This style corresponds to the true philosophy of the G-Shock, which implies durability and compliance with the environment. Fans of military style can also find many attractive colors. In short, we are definitely satisfied with the color.

 

GST-B100BNR-1A

Despite the considerable age of the label [80 years as it may], the modern look and technology of GST-B100 is very useful here – such a symbiosis of the old and new era in honor of a whole musical genre [jazz]. “Blue Note and G-Shock have a similar history of development and improvement,” says Don Vance. “We consider G-Shock to be the right brand for collaboration that will help us celebrate our 80th anniversary while we enter a new era of labels. It’s about getting closer to our viewers, about meeting their interests, regardless of their favorite genre in music – be it jazz or hip-hop. ”

 

GST-S300GL-1A и GST-S330L-1A

GWR-B1000

Let’s start with the most interesting and “delicious” – this year, Casio focused on the protective concept of Carbon Core Guard, the idea of which is to use a whole [Casio engineers use the wording Carbon Monocoque] carbon-reinforced body piece. The chip is precisely in the integrity of the design, because any connection, even the most reliable, is always a weak link in any design. Carbon itself does not only provide extreme impact resistance and wear resistance, but is also an order of magnitude lighter than both polyurethane and steel.

 

February 2019

DW-5700SLG-7

The backlight traditionally contains one of the letters of the word “G-Shock” [in this case, “C” and we still should expect the appearance of the latest model from the direction with the letter “K”]. The manufacturer has solidly prepared for the “7 Gods of Fortune” series and even presented an official page on the international site.

 

G-Shock Metallic Series

What is the power of the collection? At a minimum, bright personalities can improve their wardrobe with the help of bright shocks of the budget segment. Yes, G-Shock Black and Rose Gold does not include expensive series, but the design has improved and is not so boring [such as in the basic versions].

 

GG-1000WLP-1A

The external view of the GG-1000WLP-1A is made in leopard style, which symbolizes the protection of African wild animals. Symbolism, by the way, is quite interesting, since it is the strap that focuses attention on the color of the animal, and the strap, as we know, is often loved to be made of leather.

 

GMA-S120MF

The compact G-Shock series of GMA-S120 and GMA-S130 reappeared in new clothes in the monthly updates of the shock-resistant direction. The very concept of small G-Shock-s is sometimes very surprising to us, because the positioning seems to be feminine, but this is not Baby-G. That is why it is? We are trying to find the answer in a common sense, namely: the consumer is not always ready to wear enormous sizes, and the “S” G-Shock series just suits many “small-caliber”.

 

GMA-S130PA

The compact G-Shock series of GMA-S120 and GMA-S130 reappeared in new clothes in the monthly updates of the shock-resistant direction. The very concept of small G-Shock-s is sometimes very surprising to us, because the positioning seems to be feminine, but this is not Baby-G. That is why it is? We are trying to find the answer in a common sense, namely: the consumer is not always ready to wear enormous sizes, and the “S” G-Shock series just suits many “small-caliber”.

 

GR-B100WLP-7A

The design of GR-B100WLP-7A can be called the fruit of the work of the Japanese organization WILDLIFE PROMISING [is in the eternal struggle for the lives of people in Africa and the preservation of wildlife]. The brown strap [to us it is very similar to the leather] is a kind of reminder of the natural color of wild animals, or just wood [which also fits].

 

GW-B5600HR-1

To begin with, the GW-B5600 series [our subjective opinion] is one of the top in the G-Shock model range. In the segment of the square G-Shock-s so accurately. Well, who, tell me, is still equal to a huge functional filling [synchronization with the phone and not only], compact size and light weight of the composite strap. We highly recommend reading our review [link below], as there are plenty of advantages.

 

MRG-G2000RJ-2A

In this case, the traditional Japanese product means the blade Jyuryoku Maru, which in Japan is called “the knife for opening letters” – the design was developed specifically for MRG. By the way, one of these swords is included in a limited set with a clock. The manufacturer assures that each of the mini-swords is forged by the same blacksmiths who create traditional Japanese blades. The unique appearance and hand-forged – a pledge of respect for the work of the master, and Casio perfectly understand such messages.

 

January 2019

Light cherry color has a special meaning for the Japanese – the flowers of the sakura tree, which has been used in the land of the rising sun as an ornamental plant for a long time, look like that. The color of the sakura there symbolizes the transience and transience of life, in which you need to appreciate every passing day. The image of Sakura is widely used in Japanese culture and everyday life, and here is a whole centuries-old history.

 

GX-56SLG-1

Therefore, everything is fine, the guys with narrow wrists can not worry [in fact, no]. The hours are still large, but their target audience is not demanding of such dimensions. GX-56 is designed for those people who complement their style with a unique watch gadget. And here our digital hero, of course, is practically out of competition.
