Enjoy Japanese approaches to Tough and Functional Watches!

Strong, light, slim: Carbon Core Guard structure. Offering strength, lightness and excellent weather resistance, a carbon fibre-reinforced resin case protects the module. Furthermore, with a glass fibre-reinforced resin cover enclosing the case back, the watch is slim at just 12.8mm.

Front design with tough presence. Six front screws secure the bezel. The case features a front button for operation of the light. While structural and functional in their utility, the components serve as design accents as well, distinguishing the watch face with a tough look.

Functional beauty with finer detail: Three-dimensional disk indicator. An intricately shaped disk indicator is placed at the 9 o’clock position. Sharpness of form right down to the cut of the edges is achieved with state-of-the-art metal moulding technology. Vapour deposition further emphasizes the metallic texture of the GA-2200M. Combined with an inset dial ring and irregular shaped LCD on the dial, the watch creates a mechanised look.

Powerful and easy to use: Oversized side buttons. Despite slimming the case, we were still able to increase the size of the side buttons. Knurling on upper surfaces enhances their ease of operation. Inserting the buttons between the bezel and back cover gives even the side view of the watch a gear-like appearance.

The most distinctive specs of GA-2200 *Editorial
Industrial style (six front screws and a front button, not to mention the analogue dial with an indicator inspired by an automotive brake disc)
Carbon Core Guard Structure (protects the module with a carbon case. Highly durable carbon fiber-reinforced resin is added not only to the center case, but also to the front and side button guards, providing even stronger resistance to shocks from above or below, or from any side)
10-year battery life (the most optimized caliber ever existing in G-Shock line)
200-meter water resistance (good for swimming but not for deep diving)
