No outfit is ever complete without the addition of an accessory like a watch. More than just a timepiece, a watch can help to accentuate our outfits in a subtle or loud way just by its colours, shape, and make.
It’s easy then to get tempted to update your timepiece every new season, especially when Casio consistently impresses with new and trendy collections for its range of G-SHOCK watches.
Here’s a look at upcoming G-SHOCK collections, set to release end of this month.
G-SHOCK x KASHIWA SATO
Designed in collaboration with Japanese creative director Kashiwa Sato, the DWE-5600KS-7DR ($329) is a new addition to the G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches. The series features Sato’s initial ‘K’ when the backlight is activated, as well as straight blue and white lines on a vivid red watch face that replicates a motif from one of Sato’s best known series of works, Lines.
In conjunction with his solo exhibition at the National Art Centre in Tokyo, Sato’s first G-SHOCK collaboration will also include interchangeable bands and bezels — made of clear, orange, and green semi-transparent material — that will give you full creative control over the 27 different design combinations you can get just by switching the bands and bezels.
G-SHOCK x Kashiwa Sato DWE-5600KS-7DR retails at $329 and is available from 27 March online here, and at all G-SHOCK stores (except boutiques located in Isetan and Takashimaya) and Dover Street Market.
ROSE GOLD INGOT COLLECTION
G-SHOCK welcomes the new Rose Gold Ingot collection to its family of well-loved full metal pieces! Featuring two base solar-powered models, both watches are made of solid stainless steel and equipped with MULTI BAND6 that automatically receives radio wave reception up to 6 times a day to provide you with accurate and easy time setting. Both models are also the first in the G-SHOCK lineup to feature a rose gold ion-plated finish.
The GMW-B5000GD-4DR ($849) features the original digital square face with vapour deposition coating for a solid metallic texture and includes Bluetooth connectivity that allows time adjustments through a dedicated phone app, while the AWM-500GD-4ADR ($819) is built with an analog round face reminiscent of G-SHOCK’s first analog, the AW-500.
The Rose Gold Ingot Collection GMW-B5000GD-4DR retails at $849 and is available online here from 19 March and at all G-SHOCK stores from 26 March, while the WM-500GD-4ADR retails at $819 and is available online here from 26 March, and at all G-SHOCK stores from 2 April.
If you’ve always hoped for an alternative version of the G-SHOCK GA-2100, you’re in luck! The GMA-S2100 ($159) is a smaller version of the well-loved model featuring an octagonal bezel, flat face, metallic rose gold bar hour markers, and carbon core guard structure, which gives the watch ultimate shock resistance even with its slim case.
Available in four tone-on-tone colour ways — black, red, pink, and white — the GMA-2100 is equipped with world time for you to select time from 48 cities and a double LED light at the face and digital display, in a matte finish and monochromatic colour palette that will make the watch suitable for any occasion.
G-SHOCK GMA-S2100 retails at $159 and is available online here from 26 March, and at all G-SHOCK stores from 2 April.
