New from G-Shock Japan this month is the new Basic Black Series, featuring a quartet of models treated to stripped-down black designs. The understated aesthetic is enhanced with a matte black finish, tonal lettering and reverse LCD displays. A standout piece from the range takes the form of the GXW-56BB-1JF, pictured directly below, representing an extra-large Tough Solar/Multi-Band 6 model based on the original square G-Shock shape and featuring mud/dust resistance and Alpha Gel for extreme shock protection. It's joined by the analog-digital AW-591BB-1AJF, long-running DW-6900BB-1JF and the G-100BB-1AJF, a second analog-digital style.
