Rose gold GM-B2100GD-5AJF and black GST-B500BD-1AJF have ended production

According to Casio.com, the rose gold G-Shock GM-B2100GD-5AJF and black GST-B500BD-1AJF have ended production and are discontinued in Japan. This usually means that they will be discontinued in other countries as well.

Previous reports indicated that the GM-B2100GD-5A, which was advertised as rose gold but is more of a brownish copper-like color instead of the usual pink rose gold, was expected to be discontinued. We hope to see a traditional yellow gold GM-B2100 model sometime this year, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

At 12.8 millimeters, the GST-B500BD-1A was one of the thinner options for a black ion plated metallic G-Shock with an analog display. Similar all-black alternatives include the full metal GM-B2100BD-1A (12.8 mm) and the pricier full analog MTG-B3000B-1A (12.1 mm). Both of these models are equipped with Tough Solar power and Bluetooth smartphone link like the GST-B500BD-1A.

The GM-B2100GD-5AJF and GST-B500BD-1AJF may still be available from retailers in Japan for the time being, and the GM-B2100GD-5A and GST-B500BD-1A are still available in other countries. (The GST-B500BD-1A was not released in the U.S.) When current stocks are depleted, that is expected to be the end of them.

I may do like I did with the desert Mudman and get the “whatever it is gold” model while possible. I actually like how they are almost randomly creating lasting value in the watches and their brand with this strategy. I’m not sure what the intent or purpose is, but to me it means run of the mill G Shocks can become collectible. Off hand I can’t think of another brand doing that, although Seiko seems to stumble through a situation or two just seemingly by dumb luck.

Regardless, I think I’m in. I’ve seen these go for up to 40% off. The search begins…
