G-SHOCK INTRODUCES A SLEEK AND INNOVATIVE SERIES
The Black & Gold Timepiece Capsule Collection Redefines Style and Toughness
LAS VEGAS, NV, JUNE 3, 2011 — A new series for G-Shock, the Black & Gold capsule collection consists of four styles: the G9300GB-1(a completely new model to the Master of G series) and the GX56GB-1 featured in matte black with metallic gold accents; while the two fashion forward hero styles that launched in 2010 - the GD100GB-1 and the GA110GB-1 are available in a black glossy finish with eye-catching metallic gold dials.
Both a high performance timepiece and a must-have fashion accessory for the sophisticated gentlemen, the new Black & Gold series seamlessly combines state-of-the-art technology with aesthetically pleasing designs. Unique to other luxury timepieces on the market, the G-Shock Black & Gold collection embodies all of the qualities watch enthusiasts seek, yet remains incredibly affordable.

The result is an impressive solar timepiece that assures reliable timekeeping and greatly reduces the need for battery change.
