The LOV-18A-7A set includes a white G-Shock AW-591 and Baby-G BGA-150 with the metallic parts treated with a gold IP. The Greek motifs can be spotted at the 7 o’clock position in the form of a feather and butterfly respectively.
LOV-18B-4 G Presents Lovers Collection 2018
The LOV-18B-4 set includes a pink G-Shock DW-D5600 and Baby-G BGD-560 with what appears to be a metallic mirror rose gold border around the display. The feather and butterfly motif is visible when the EL backlights are activated.
