Okay, so we really have no idea what to call this new G-Shock series. The common code is “WG,” so we’ll assume that means “White Green,” but blue is also a prominent color, so we’ll add “Blue” in there. White is a sporty color so we’ll go with “Sporty.” It is a March 2017 release in Japan, but last year’s white and blue spring collection was called the “Summer Sky Series”, so we’ll say “Summer.” So there you have it: the G-Shock WG White Green Blue Sporty Summer Series. (Update: G-Shock Japan is calling this a White & Light Blue series so we’ve shortened the name to the G-Shock WG White & Light Blue Summer Series.)
This series features white bezels and bands with mint green and turquoise blue accents. Green is used for the button function names on the bezel, analog hands, and tinted LCD displays (along with buttons on the last two models). The G-Shock and Protection logos and markers are blue. This series consists of all analog-digital models including two Tough Solar/Multi-Band 6 models. Models include (left to right): AWG-M100SWG-7AJF, AWG-M510SWG-7AJF, GA-110WG-7AJF, GA-400WG-7AJF, and GA-500WG-7AJF.
Update: The GA-110WG-7A, GA-400WG-7A, and GA-500WG-7A are April 2017 releases in Asia.
Update 2: The GA110WG-7A is getting an American release with a list price of $120 USD.
AWG-M100SWG-7AJF: A Tough Solar/Multi-Band 6 model and a standard-size (i.e. not extra-large) G-Shock. This is a Japan-only model.
AWG-M510SWG-7AJF: A Tough Solar/Multi-Band 6 model that has the same exterior case as the first-ever analog G-Shock model. AWG-M510S watches are typically a Japan-only release.
GA-110WG-7A: The extra-large analog-digital case that is a popular choice for streetwear fashion.
GA-400WG-7A: An extra-large model with a rotary switch for easy access to functions.
