Earlier this year we saw CASIO unveil a string of new G-SHOCK horological iterations. The indestructible watches have cemented their place in popular culture and fashion, becoming symbols of strength and next-level technicality.
One of these recent releases was G-SHOCK’s black and white Skeleton Series in February, which overlapped futuristic minimalism and elements of the iconic G-SHOCK design and DNA that we know and love so well.
The series introduced a variety of new models, two of which are key highlights thanks to their slick design aesthetic as well as the advanced technological features they offer. The analog-digital Blackout GA-2100-1A1 and the GA-2100SKE are both based on the archival GA-2100, a longstanding G-SHOCK staple that draws inspiration from the very first watch, the DW-5000C. The slim profile, streamlined design, and octagonal shape of the GA-2100 became a popular choice worldwide amongst young people, but also all other demographics, hence its lasting presence in the latest G-SHOCK creations.
The GA-2100SKE features a transparent strap and case alongside an illuminator, stopwatch function, timer, five alarms, automatic calendar, and as if that wasn’t enough, is water-resistant to 20 bars (equal to 200 meters of water pressure). With identical features, the GA-2100-1A1 is bolder in its appearance. The all-black color is timeless yet reminiscent of the Skeleton ranges connection to classic sci-fi movies and a more post-modern aesthetic.
