G-Shock Sand and Land Series with GX-56SL, GW-B5600SL, and GA-2200SL with mix-molded resin inspired by sand and soil

G-Shock SL Series: GX-56SL-4 GW-B5600SL-4 GW-B5600SL-5 GA-2200SL-5A GA-2200SL-8A

Coming in June, the G-Shock Sand and Land (SL) series is inspired by the colors of sand and soil from around the world, giving each watch a subtle camouflage style. These models are created with the unique mix-molding process that combines two colors to create unique patterns on the bezels and bands of each individual watch. Models include the analog-digital GA-2200SL-5A and GA-2200SL-8A, the GW-B5600SL-4 and GW-B5600SL-5 with Tough Solar, Multi-Band 6, and Bluetooth, and the extra-large GX-56SL-4 with Tough Solar and Alpha Gel protection.

This is the first new wide-release GX-56 model since the GX-56SLG-1 from the Seven Lucky Gods Series in 2019. There was also a limited edition GX-56 released in 2019 for Singapore’s National Day. The last GXW-56 (Tough Solar & Multi-Band 6) release was the GXW-56BB-1 in 2016.

Update: G-Shock U.S. released the GA2200SL-5A and GA2200SL-8A for $130 each, the GWB5600SL-4 and GWB5600SL-5 for $150 each, and the GX56SL-4 for $160.

The brown/yellow square looks decent, but definitely would swap the bezel and strap for a better color, such as beige or yellow.

Why can’t we get a GX or GXW 56 with a positive display??? The number of negative displays is beyond nuts.
