G-Shock has no shortage of sporty wristwear that's just as affordable as it is eyecatching. Here is a prime example of why G-Shock is beloved by streetwear gurus and true watch aficionados who would normally scoff at a quartz movement, but as always, G-Shock is the exception to that rule.
Tough and slim, the new GA2200 models have a carbon core guard structure that makes them great-looking outdoor tools. The GA2200BB-1A comes in a stealthy all black colorway.
The slim, 12.8mm case of the GA2200 is created using a new structure that integrates the bezel, back cover, and buttons into a single piece. The six prominent screws securing the bezel create a G-SHOCK tough look. Enlarged side buttons provide a higher degree of impact resistance, eliminating the need for button guards. This creates a simple design and makes buttons easier to operate. A slide lever-type band makes band replacement quicker and simpler.
The disc indicator on the face and the semi-circular design parts around it are colored using a vapor deposition process for a more realistic metallic feel. Each of these parts is separated from the dial for a three-dimensional effect. A diagonal digital display in the lower right of the face creates a unique look.
The result is a collection of G-SHOCK models for young people and adults that look great in the great outdoors.
