We may be in the Carbon Era but G-Shock is still committed to its colorful retro-style collections as seen with the release of this ’90s-inspired blue and purple accent series (along with the Clear Skeleton Series). The five watches in this collection have black cases with purple accents along with neon-like turquoise and/or blue accents. Each watch has a dual-layer resin band with a purple or turquoise inner band color. These five watches will be released in April 2019 in Japan. They will also be released in other Asian countries except for the AWG-M100SBL-1AJF, and the GAS-100BL-1A (Tough Solar without Multi-Band 6) will take the place of the GAW-100BL-1AJF in those markets.
Update: The GA100BL-1A (list price $120 USD) and GWB5600BL-1 (list price $150 USD) are May 2019 releases in the U.S.
