G-Shock expands translucent body of skeleton watches


G-Shock’s designers must have been feeling like the rest of us over the past year: grey and barely visible.

A collection of five watches that are on sale this week are all given what G-Shock calls its SKE Skeleton treatment that includes black or dark dials, inverted LCD displays, and translucent bezels and bands ranging from light and clear to dark and smoky grey.

There are four analog-digital models in the new line up and one digital watch, described by G-Shock:



Sophisticated and eye catching, the new deep grey transparent strap lends a fashionable tone to a very popular and practical timepiece.

Over-sized buttons come with a checkered anti-slip surface, and there’s also a stopwatch, 100 Lap Memory, World Time, 5 alarms as well as being 200M water resistant.


Combining toughness with practical functions such as shock resistance, 200M water resistance, world time, stopwatch, countdown timer, 5 alarms, and an estimated 3-year battery life.

A Carbon Core Guard structure provides greater shock resistance to the module by enclosing it in a carbon case, and the strap and bezel are a deep translucent grey adding a fashionable finish.


A heavy-duty look with an industrial design motif, with a ten-sided decagonal bezel that resembles a large nut and fine detailing on the hands. Each button has a textured non-slip surface.

Other features include shock resistance, 200M water resistance, stopwatch, timer and world time mode.

The GA-900SKE has a deep transparent grey strap adding a on-trend detail to the practical timepiece.


The original square model DW-5600 has been added to the lineup adopting a clear colouring based on white.

Introducing a new skeleton series that is also active as a fashion item with chic colouring.


The GA-700 model is the largest in the collections. An extra-large analog-digital with light translucent bezel and band and black inner case.


This is the first skeleton-style GA-2100 model. It features a carbon core guard structure with a light translucent octagonal bezel.
