In a theme that links the world of games and watchmaking, G-SHOCK presented a new line of watches inspired by virtual reality. Dubbed the Virtual World collection, the watches evoke a sense of digital culture and aesthetics through minimalist black bezels and stripes that are accented by a vibrant blue-purple color on the dials. Each timepiece in the Virtual World collection retains the high-end design and technical characteristics of G-SHOCK watches, with impact and water resistance as well as super LED backlighting for better readability. The Virtual World collection brings a futuristic atmosphere right to your wrist. For a new watch that’s sure to start a conversation, check out the full collection below.
The GA2100 has earned the nickname “Casioak” from fans for its eerie resemblance to another well-known watch. But what only a privileged few knew before was that the GA2100 silhouette is based on the original digital G-SHOCK, the DW5000C, and G-SHOCK’s first analog / digital, the AW500. The GA2100 distills the very essence of these two silhouettes – the watch is not what many perceive at first glance, but rather is an entirely original silhouette and a new icon in the making that expands the possibilities of ruggedness and analog style.
Made with a carbon core protective structure, it is lighter (just 51g) and thinner (11.8mm, how it’s under the sleeve) than most other G-SHOCK models. This slim and compact watch is ideal for a contemporary lifestyle, so it’s no wonder it’s so popular today.
Whether you’re hooking up to a game with friends, heading to town or even to the office, the GA2100 is a great choice to go with you. Its clean style and simple but functional dial make the watch infinitely wearable. Perhaps best of all, it’s only $ 99, which means you can buy more than one to match everything in your wardrobe – and even gift one to a friend.
