Casio’s iconic G-SHOCK line of watches gets a new model that may look classic, but is structurally quite different. The GA-B001 models feature an all-new integrated bezel and band construction for absolute strength.

While watches usually have two parts, the watch itself and the strap, this GA-B001 model comes with an integrated bezel. The band is integrated into the bezel, which comprises two separate components that connect at the 9 and 3 o’clock positions.

Plus, the molded construction follows the lines of the wrist, minimizing the gap between wrist and watch for a better fit.

The inspiration for these watches comes from virtual reality, with a design intended to evoke a gateway to the worlds of virtual reality. The new model features a geometric dial design and round indexes.

GA-B001 models feature the G-Shock in classic black and a bold new shade of red and retail for RM645, while GA-B001G models feature a gradient color print in blue and red respectively for a cool look and sell out at RM695.
