As the holiday shopping season is in full swing, news for upcoming G-Shock releases might be rather scarce around this time. (G-Shock Japan announced only the Daruma Doll Series and the GA-2110ET-2AJF for December 2020.)
G-Shock China is releasing three new models this month that weren’t announced for Japan: the GMA-S140M-1APR, GMA-S140M-4APR, and GMA-S140M-7APR (900 CNY each). The GMA-S140M series offers black, blush pink, and white options with metallic markers in gold, rose gold, and purple, respectively. These watches are smaller S Series models based on the G-Shock GA-140. These models use the familiar 100-series case style and have a boombox-inspired dial. Features include world time, 1/1000-second stopwatch, speed measurement, countdown timer (24 hour), 5 daily alarms with 1 snooze alarm, and auto LED light with afterglow (1.5/3 seconds). The GMA-S140M series is expected to get a wider release.
G-Shock U.K. also has the GMA-S140M-1AER, GMA-S140M-4AER, and GMA-S140M-7AER listed as “coming soon” with a list price of £109 each.
Update: G-Shock Japan announced the GMA-S140M-1AJF (14,500 JPY plus tax) and the GMA-S140M-7AJF (14,500 JPY plus tax) for a January 2021 release. The GMA-S140M-1A, GMA-S140M-4A, and GMA-S140M-7A are also January 2021 releases in Asia.
Update 2: The GMAS140M-1A, GMAS140M-4A, and GMAS140M-7A were released in the U.S. with a list price of $110 each.
