TOKYO, July 28, 2022 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today the latest additions to its G-SHOCK shock-resistant watches. These three new GM-B2100 watches, with a full-metal design now adopted for iconic octagonal bezel of the 2100 line.
Since the 2019 release of the GA-2100 — a contemporary interpretation of the very first G-SHOCK, the DW-5000C — the slim, simple, streamlined design of the 2100 line has proven popular, especially among younger consumers.
This new shock-resistant GM-B2100 watches employ stainless steel as the exterior material for the case, band, and bezel, pushing the 2100 line forward in both full-metal construction and sharp design. In order to ensure shock resistance in these metal-clad timepieces, the shock-resistant structure created for the iconic shape of the full-metal GMW-B5000 was adopted for the screw-back case, band, and bezel joints of these watches as well, with buffering components made of fine resin installed between the bezel and case.
The bezel, put through meticulous processes — first forging, then cutting and polishing — are precisely crafted for an intricately shaped face that is eye-catchingly solid and stylish. To accentuate the beauty of the metal, the components are treated with different finishes — the bezel with a circular hairline finish on its top surface, the band with a vertical hairline finish, and the bezel bevel, buttons and case back with a mirror finish. The dial is composed of multiple parts to create depth and dimension, while the inset dial ring at the 9 o’clock position and the index marks are treated with a vapor deposition finish for a watch face with a truly quality look.
The three new watches are the silver GM-B2100D with stainless steel gleam, the chic GM-B2100BD with black ion plating, and the GM-B2100GD with bright rose gold, for versatility suited to every style and occasion.
The new watches also deliver practical utility with a Tough Solar charging system that eliminates the need to regularly replace the battery. They are also equipped with Smartphone Link* connectivity via Bluetooth® for accurate timekeeping and easy setting of alarms, countdown timer, world time and other functions from a smartphone app.
