Casio has unveiled the 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 bezel has the octagonal shape familiar to the original G-SHOCK watch, the DW5000C.
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.
The unique forged stainless-steel bezel has a concentric hairline finish applied to the top surface and a mirror polish to the sides.
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 metal covered shock resistant structure of the GM2100 models are built with protrusions on the inner case to reduce surface contact with the bezel and cushion shocks to the module.
The module is housed in a glass fiber reinforced resin case for maximum shock resistance while the bezel itself is precisely crafted through forging, cutting and polishing the stainless-steel bezel to provide a comfortable fit.
The GM2100-1A 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, the G-SHOCK Soho Store and gshock.com.
