August will be a “CasiOak” bonanza, with ten new G-Shock 2100 series watches slated for release. We previously covered the all-new stainless steel metal-covered GM-2100 and GM-S2100 series, which make up seven models. The remaining three are basic colorways of the resin and carbon GA-2100 series, which is also known as the slimmest current G-Shock watch for men.
The similarity to the Royal Oak is the result of combining the octagonal bezel of the origin 5000/5600 series with a round analog display. Casio’s intention was to embody the spirit and functionality of the classic 5000 series in a mid-sized analog-digital version, and they greatly succeeded with a watch that is lightweight, comfortable, and stylish.
The three new models include the blue GA-2100-2A, the beige GA-2100-5A, and the white GA-2100-7A. They will be released in Japan and most likely Asia and other regions. G-Shock U.K. has all three models listed as coming soon for £99 each.
Update: The white GA2100-7A ($99) is being released in the U.S. All three models are being released in Europe.
