Casio has introduced the GA-B001 series, which features an all-new aesthetic for the Japanese watchmaker.
The G-Shock GA-B001 series has a new eight-sided (octagonal) case that combines existing design language from numerous other collections with something that looks somewhat like the CasiOak.
Interestingly, at 42.5 mm x 13.8 mm (46 mm lug-to-lug) the case diameter and lug-to-lug are actually smaller than the standard-sized CasiOak, although the new G-Shock GA-B001 case is 2 mm thicker than the GA-B2100 (CasiOak). Weight is also the same as the CasiOak at 51 grams.
Made from carbon and resin, with a Carbon Core Guard structure, with a resin band the G-Shock GA-B001 is highly shock-resistant and has a 200-meter depth rating. This is a mobile link-equipped quartz watch, which automatically sets the time, with extreme precious, when connected to the Casio Watches app via Bluetooth. However, the power source is two standard 2-year batteries (SR726W X 2), not solar.
A mineral crystal protects the dial and looks much like the CasiOak, with both analog and digital displays.
A new approach to toughness-driven design delivers an integrated bezel and band construction, while Smartphone Link puts full functionality right at your fingertips. The dial evokes a gateway to virtual reality worlds with an iconic layout featuring a distinctive inset dial. With engaging app-linked display features and more, the G-Shock GA-B001 watch integrates the digital worldview with analogue expressivity.
