We love how Casio gave G-SHOCK watches the metal treatment and this second generation only serves to reinforce the idea that G-SHOCK can look good in steel and you need not to look silly with a G-SHOCK timepiece when in suit/shirt and pants. Announced for Spring, this second wave consists of four watches all featuring G-SHOCK trademark toughness, along with unique layered guard structure of metal and resin on the bezel and layered dials for the 3D look. Of the four watches, two models are paired to solid resin band (GST210B-1A and GST210B-4A) and two sports resin bands with printed metal crystal pattern (GST200CP-2A and GST200CP-9A).
This time round, Casio chose to give the typical steel finish a pass; instead, it offers the collection in black, bronze, gold and blue accents against a black setup. My personal favorite would be the bronze, which had the bezel and case in one bronze finish against a black resin strap. Aesthetic aside, the watches are pretty much the G-SHOCK you have come to expect with features like G-SHOCK requisite shock resistance, 200M water resistance, auto super illuminator LED backlight, Neo-brite luminous hands, world times for up to 31 time zones/48 cities, 5 daily alarms, 1/100th sec. stopwatch, 60-minute countdown timer, 12/24 hour formats, and a grand case size of 52.4mm.
