G-Shock Virtual Blue Analog-Digital Series

G-Shock AWG-M520VB-1A GA-2100VB-1A

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).

Got the 900 and the light sucks. The lcd isn’t backlit and the led barely lights the hands in the dark. The afterglow sorta helps but isn’t very bright and is only on the tip of the hands. For costing twice what my old gshock cost, that had solar and auto time with proper back light, I’m disappointed. However I absolutely love the look and colors. So I’m going to keep it.
