The “Virtual Blue” series is the type of matching multi-line G-Shock series that used to be more common in the past. These black and blue analog-digital watches have blue violet accents and inverted LCD displays. The style gives the impression of a futuristic cyberpunk setting that one might see in the movies or video games.
The series includes the AWG-M100SVB-1A, AWG-M520VB-1A, and GA-2100VB-1A. The AWG-M100SVB-1A and AWG-M520VB-1A feature Tough Solar power and Multi-Band 6 radio-controlled auto time adjustment, and the GA-2100VB-1A is a slimmer model with an approximate 3-year battery life. There is also the GA-700VB-1A (5-year battery) and GA-900VB-1A (7-year battery), which are not listed for Japan but are coming to the U.S., China, and Asia (October 2021).
In Japan, the AWG-M520VB-1AJF (25,300 yen tax-included) and GA-2100VB-1AJF (14,850 yen) will be released in October 2021, and the AWG-M100SVB-1AJF (26,400 yen) will be released in December. We’re guessing that the AWG-M520VB-1A will be a Japan-only release like all AWG-M520 models so far.
Update: G-Shock U.S. released the following models as the “Virtual World” series: GA2100VB-1A ($110), GA700VB-1A ($110), GA900VB-1A ($140).
