G-Shock goes for gold in first collection to mark 35th anniversary

G-Shock Gold Tornado

G-Shock will be 35 years old in April next year, and ahead of the anniversary, the company is releasing a commemorative collection of three models known as the Gold Tornado.

The collectors’ models have gold colour accents against a base of symbolic black and red.

All three models in the collection have monolithic black bodies, with bright red on the back of the two-tone watch bands and the “SINCE 1983” on the watch face.

They use gold ion plating on the main metal parts including the bezel, case, and screws, with gold color accents used extensively in other areas.

Casio said it chose the color gold to symbolise the G-Shock heritage of constantly impacting the world by delivering new toughness in construction since day one, and the aspiration to maintain the brilliant presence which creates a buzz by producing astonishment and delight.

The Three Models of the Gold Tornado are:

  • GPW-2000TFB features next-generation Connected Engine 3-Way module
  • G-STEEL GST-B100TFB incorporates lightweight, rigid carbon materials in the bezel
  • FROGMAN GWF-D1035B is a pro-grade diver’s watch with gold color accents on the LCD

UK release details have not been disclosed.
