G-Shock watches’ norm is the signature black colorway which is cool because they are, after all, rugged timepieces, but if you are going score in the street style department, colors are essential. TBH, purists will not settle for anything else other than the standard black, or maybe occasional camo colorway. However, for everyone else who are open to bold colors, G-Shock has recently announced new, vibrant colorways for two popular men’s street style models for this holiday season. The models are GA800 and the model that recently made history, DW5600.
The GA800 models feature bold colors inspired by trendy athletic wear while the DW5600 is a nod to the bright color combinations popular in the 1980s. As such, the DW5600 range is aptly referred to as DW5600 Throwback 1983 collection and it includes four colorways: yellow with black band (DW5600TB-1), white with red band (DW5600TB-4A), turquoise with purple band (DW5600TB-6) and bright blue with pink band (DW5600TB-4B).
The GA800 models, on the other hand, are available in blue with neon yellow accents (GA800SC-2A), purple with orange accents (GA800SC-6A) and white with neon green accents (GA800SC-7A). Whichever you choose, you can expect the same G-Shock technology of 200M water resistance and shock resistance, along with 1/100th second stopwatch and countdown timer.
The new colored DW5600 and GA800 models are available starting this month with an asking price of $99 a pop.
