G-SHOCK Unveils All-New Series of Metal Covered Watches
Casio today unveiled its latest addition to its G-SHOCK line up of timepieces with the GM2100 series, a collection of watches that feature a metal-clad shock resistant structure with a thin profile. The series is available in four unique colorways including the GM2100-1A featuring a stainless-steel bezel and black urethane band, the GM2100N-2A with a blue IP bezel, with a matching dial and band, the GM2100B-3A in a gray IP bezel with a green dial and band, and lastly the GM2100B-4A in a gray IP bezel with a black band and red dial.
A stainless steel bezel with exceptional strength and inner case made of damage- and deformation-resistant glass fibre-reinforced resin safeguards the module. Tiny protrusions on the inner case reduce surface contact with the bezel to cushion shocks to the module.
The unique forged stainless-steel bezel has a concentric hairline finish applied to the top surface and a mirror polish to the sides, giving it a beautiful gleam. Vapor deposition is applied to the dial showcasing hairline and mirror finishes to emphasize a metallic texture while the digital display is positioned to optimize the viewing area for both the analog and digital readout. The urethane band has a box check patterned texture for an added casual touch.
The new models boast G-SHOCK’s latest features, such as a light fadeout function on the dial, hand retract function, full auto calendar, full auto Super LED light, and more. The CasionGM2100-1A will retail for $200, while the GM2100N-2A, GM2100B-3A, and GM2100B-4A will retail for $220. All four models will be available for purchase at the beginning of September at select G-SHOCK retailers and gshock.com.
