While rumors of an all-new upcoming G-Shock Rangeman abound, there will be at least one more GW-9400 model with the release of the GW-9408KJ-7JR, a Love The Sea And The Earth 2022 limited edition release and collaboration with the environmental group Earthwatch. The color scheme is inspired by the polar bear, a vulnerable species that inhabits arctic regions, and the watch is just the second white GW-9400 model after the GW-9400BTJ-8 from 2015. (Although that model was technically designated as gray with the “8” in the name, it had a white appearance.) This model is described as off-white, and the face is made of phosphorescent resin that glows blue in the dark. (Last year’s GW-9407KJ-3JR also had a glow-in-the-dark face.) Blue accents appear as label colors and a ring around the sensor button, and the carbon fiber insert band has an inner layer made of translucent blue resin. The Earthwatch logo appears on the LED backlight and the stainless steel case back is engraved with the Love The Sea And The Earth 2022 emblem.
Notable features of the GW-9408KJ-7JR include Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 automatic radio time adjustment, Triple Sensor (pressure: altimeter-barometer, compass, thermometer), sunrise/sunset time, and a full auto LED backlight.
The GW-9408KJ-7JR is November 2022 release in Japan with a tax-included price of 58,300 yen. Earthwatch edition Rangeman watches are typically released in Japan only, but we will post updates here if it is released wider.
