Love the Sea and the Earth 2018 G-Shock and Baby-G Limited

Love The Sea And The Earth 2018 G-Shock GW-6902K-9JR Baby-G BGA-250AP-2AJR BGR-3008K-7JR ICERC and Aqua Planet Collaboration Watches

The Love The Sea And The Earth series for 2018 is arriving in Japan with the release of the G-Shock GW-6902K-9JR (middle), Baby-G BGA-250AP-2AJR (left), and Baby-G BGR-3008K-7JR (right). All three models feature unique styling and branding along with an exclusive Love The Sea And The Earth engraved case back and custom packaging. For the past four years the Rangeman GW-9400 was also part of the Love The Sea And The Earth collections as an Earthwatch collaboration but is curiously absent this year. We’re not sure what to make of that. We can’t imagine that the GW-9400 is being discontinued and would like to think it is being saved for some kind of 35th Anniversary edition, but that is pure speculation. Anyway, on to this year’s models…

Update: The Baby-G BGA-250AP-2A is also getting a wider release in Asia.

The bands are branded and the metal band keeper has a symbol of a dolphin on it that also appears on the EL backlight. List price is ¥22,000 JPY.
