G-Shock Japan will be releasing the Frogman GWF-A1000K-2AJR and G-LIDE GWX-5700K-2JR in June 2021 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of I.C.E.R.C. Japan (International Cetacean Education Research Center). I.C.E.R.C. collaborations with G-Shock (and sometimes Baby-G) are an annual tradition and part of the Love The Sea And The Earth series. The first I.C.E.R.C. collaboration was the DW-6100DW-9 from 1994.
The GWF-A1000K-2AJR has a blue IP stainless steel bezel and translucent resin bumpers. The white band is made of stain-resistant fluorine rubber. The GWX-5700K-2JR has a translucent blue bezel and a black band. Both models have a stainless steel band keeper with a silhouette of a whale and a Love The Sea And The Earth 2021 engraved case back. The subdial indicator on the GWF-A1000K-2AJR is in the shape and image of a whale, and the GWX-5700K-2JR displays a whale and dolphin graphic on the EL backlight.
The Bluetooth-equipped GWF-A1000K-2AJR is an ISO Diver’s 200M watch with diving functions like dive time and surface interval measurement. The GWX-5700K-2JR has 200-meter water resistance and features a tide and moon graph. Both models have Tough Solar power and Multi-Band 6 automatic radio time-sync.
The GWF-A1000K-2AJR is 110,000 yen and the GWX-5700K-2JR is 27,500 yen. Love The Sea And The Earth editions are usually exclusive to Japan, with some exceptions.
