A total of 16 timepieces, including several brand new flagship models, and we’re only at second month of the year. But the expansive range of offerings also implies the importance of this year, 30 years after engineer Kikuo Ibe persuaded Casio executives to create a sub-division for specialized timepieces, now known by all as G-Shock. A well-balanced mix of old and new, the Casio G-Shock‘s February 2013 releases include time classics like DW-6900, now in bright “Crazy Color” designs. The ever popular GA-100 line is back again, this time known as GA-300A with more intricate details and functions. There is also the GA-1000 editions or the “Sky Cockpit” collection. Promptly featured during last year’s “Shock The World” event, this new flagship model is actually a precursor to what’s to come from G-Shock. And finally, the blacked out GD-101NS-1JR, the newest collaboration with G-Shock sponsored BMX rider Nigel Sylvester.
All new releases will be available throughout the month of February, first in Japan with worldwide availability later on this year.
