Thick profile wrist watches do not bother me a bit, but if you are bothered by tall watches, then G-Shock watches would be a straight-up turn off for you. Well, that’s until now. Meet the CASIO G-Shock GA2100 Analog-Digital Watch, an extra slim G-Shock watch that you never imagine possible.
At just 11.8 mm thin, the GA2100 is thinner than even some luxury watches and thus, it should appeal to thick profile watch haters. While extremely thin by G-Shock standards, the GA2100 does not sacrifice its ruggedness G-Shock timepieces have been known for – thanks to a thing called Carbon Core Guard.
Carbon Core Guard is not new, though, it has appeared in several other G-Shock models like the GA2000 series and the new Master of G Mudmaster GGB100 watches. We can see Casio deployment this new tough tech to future timepieces. From what we understand, carbon core guard revolved around having inner protective bumper around the electronic module as opposed encasing the entire watch.
CASIO G-Shock GA2100 Analog-Digital Watch sports an octagonal bezel, which is nod to the 1983 original G-shock, giving it a classy, upmarket look and feel. On the dial face, there is a combination of analog and digital information. Time and day of the week are offered by analog means while a pair of LCD offers electronic functions like time zones, stopwatch, alarm, countdown and more.
Despite the watch being significantly thin, it is not by any means small. It has a case diameter measure 45.4 mm that big watch haters may find it hard to past.
A few other notables include 5611 quartz movement, a resin and carbon composite case, stainless steel case back, super illuminator with Auto Light (double LED light), and 200-meter (660 feet) water resistant.
CASIO G-Shock GA2100 Analog-Digital Watch is already in the marketing selling for $99.
