G-Shock Summer 2013: Prepare Your Wallet For These Garish Colors
Casio is releasing new G-Shock models with “garish” colors (their term, not mine). I don’t know about you, but to me they are not “garish” whatsoever.
I might even say that they have muted colors (see the picture below). Nevertheless, they are beautiful beasts. I especially love the GA110BR-5A and will definitely get that model for my collection.
If budget permits, I would love to get GA110GW-7A to add to my white G-Shock collection. But I also like the AWGM100GW-7A.
Gosh… I know for sure that Amanda would love the AWGM100GW-7A as she is particularly fond of contrasting colors and this bezel. Anyway I also reproduce the press release below if you are interested to read more.
So, what do you think of this new garish colors? Are they garish enough for you? Will you buy one? Two? Or six of them? Leave a comment to let us know.
Two of the new models, the GA110GW-7A and GA110BR-5A, showcase a layered analog and digital display and come in either white with a black dial or brown with a gold dial. Like all GA110 models, the GA110GW-7A and GA110BR-5A timepieces both demonstrate 48 City world time display, 1/1000th second stopwatch with speed indicator, flash alert, 24 hr countdown timer, and 12/24 hr time formats.
The DW6900BR-5 features the iconic digital case for G-SHOCK, has a metallic gold mirror dial and a brown resin band. In addition to its shock resistant case, it is also 200M water resistant and has a multi-function alarm and 1/100th Sec. Stopwatch.
Another great style is the full analog GAC100GW-7A chronograph that has a simple, yet intricate dial set within what is quickly becoming a popular case for G-SHOCK. The dial utilizes metal parts to create a variety of levels that makes the information displayed easy to read. Features for this model include a large screw lock crown, 200 meter water resistance, 1/20th sec. chronograph, date display and magnetic resistance along with shock resistance.
The final two models in the Garish color line-up utilize color blocking of black and white for a panda look. They feature white cases, black bands, black dials and metallic displays. These men’s watches are composed of the AWGM100GW-7A and GW6900GW-7 models. Both of these models feature Tough Solar Power and Multi-Band 6 atomic time keeping, to keep the watches running and precise. Additional features include: 48-city world time, 5 daily alarms, full auto LED light, 1/100 second stopwatch, countdown timer and 12/24 hr format.

Flawless for the warmer months ahead, the DW6900BR-5 will retail for $99, while the GW6900GW-7, GA110GW-7A and GA110BR-5A will retail for $150.
