Enjoy Japanese Unique Features in GA-B001!

INGENUITY IN EXTERIOR DESIGN

A new approach to construction employs four fine-resin materials to secure the integrated bezel and band components. An enhanced fit on the wrist is achieved by moving the band’s curved support points up close to the case. In addition, attaching the glass with adhesive keeps the lug portion more compact. This design gives the bezel and band of the watch a more sharply defined profile. Also, the two-tone light button at the 2 o’clock position (on the GA-B001G-1A and GA-B001G-2A) shows the watch’s meticulous passion for detail with its iconic moulded design.

DIAL DESIGN EVOKING A GATEWAY TO VITRUAL REALITY WORLDS

The entire dial is constructed with innovative moulding, featuring a geometric inset dial evoking a security lock from the not-too-distant future, a round index with a rivet motif inspired by a corridor on a spacecraft, and a uniquely shaped LCD with a digital display. With its brilliantly distinctive design, the watch captures the spirit of a gateway leading into a virtual reality world.

CYBER COLORS WITH “NEAR-FUTURE” VIBES

The GA-B001G-1A and GA-B001G-2A models feature gradated translucent materials that call to mind virtual reality worlds. Their construction makes the inner case visible through inorganic-feeling colours. The GA-B001-4A sports a brand new shade of red. Oversaturated and high-impact, the hue expresses the “near-future” vibe of a virtual reality world. The GA-B001-1A features a uniform colour scheme with black all around.

CARBON CORE GUARD STRUCTURE

The shock-resistant structure unique to G-SHOCK protects the module, with a carbon fibre-reinforced resin case offering strength, lightness, and excellent weather resistance.

SMARTPHONE LINK FOR FULL FUNCTIONALITY

SUPER ILLUMINATOR

Super Illuminator (high-brightness double LED light) for maintaining watch readability in the dark

What we like in GA-B001 *comments by experts with 10 years experience in writing about Casio watches
— Carbon Core Guard structure (protects the module by enclosing it in a carbon case. The case is made of fine resin embedded with carbon fibers for outstanding strength and crack resistance)
Two-parts bezel (innovative construction, with two separate top and bottom bezel components that connect at the 9 and 3 o’clock positions.)
G-SHOCK Connected App (you may manage all watch settings through your phone)
Mobile link (Wireless linking using Bluetooth(R)) (for time sync with your phone data)
— 200-meter water resistance (good for swimming but not for deep diving)
