G-Shock Japan is planning to release the G-Shock Rangeman GW-9407KJ-3JR in November 2021. This model is another Love The Sea And The Earth collaboration with the environmental NGO Earthwatch. The vibrant color is inspired by a type of shark that was recently discovered to emit a bioluminescence. The animal in questions appears to be the swell shark that emits a green glow through biofluorescence and is commonly found in waters off Southern California.
The watch has a translucent green resin bezel and a glossy black resin band with a carbon fiber insert. Some of the buttons, as well as the buckle and band keeper, are a copper color. The watch reportedly uses a luminescent resin on the display (which probably refers to the white resin part that borders the LCD display sections). The “Change the World. Yourself.” tagline is printed on the upper band, and the watch has an Earthwatch logo on the LED backlight and a Love The Sea And The Earth engraved stainless steel back cover.
The Rangeman GW-9400 base features Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 radio wave time syncing, and a Triple Sensor (pressure: altimeter and barometer, compass, thermometer). The GW-9407KJ-3JR has a tax-included price of 57,200 yen. Earthwatch Rangeman models are usually released only in Japan.
