Eight is the name of the game as Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced the release of its latest G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches featuring a unique octagonal metal bezel. The new GM-2100 for men and GM-S2100 for women is based on the design of GA-2100, which is popular for its octagonal shape and streamlined design – which now incorporates a metal bezel for an even more stylish look.
Released in 2019, the base-model GA-2100 inherited the concept of the DW-5000C, the very first G-SHOCK, but was a digital-analog combination model with a slim profile and streamlined design. With its distinct octagonal shape and straightforward design, the GA-2100 has been a popular choice worldwide, particularly among young people.
The new GM-2100 for men retains the streamlined form and slim profile of the GA-2100, with an added new forged metal bezel to give the watch a sharper look. A round hairline finish is applied to the top surface of the bezel and a mirror polish to the sides, giving it a beautiful metallic gleam. Options with blue-gray IP (GM-2100N) and dark gray IP (GM-2100B) bezels are available, to suit any smart style. The dials are treated with a vapor deposition finish in new navy blue, green, and red hues to achieve appealing metallic color schemes. The watch band employs a square dot texture with incremental variations in dot size, resulting in a sharp look to match the face design.
The new GM-S2100 for women holds true to its simple, compact, beautiful, and minimalistic design, with a metal-clad that emphasises the characteristic strength and beauty of metal. The intricately shaped dial paired with the mirror index and round hairline finishes applied to the top surface gives the watch a sophisticated, yet powerful appearance. The mid-sized slim watch offers two ion plating options, with pink gold IP (GM-S2100PG) and dark grey IP (GM-S2100B), making it easily pairable with any fashion look.
True to G-SHOCK style, both models are equipped with a shock-resistant structure with its metal bezel and glass fibre-reinforced resin case. It provides up to 200-meters of water resistance, World Time, countdown timer, stopwatch, 5 daily alarms, LED light and other useful functions designed for the best of both utility and fashion.
