[G-Shock Review] GA-2000GZ-3 – Two Cool straps and a “screwdriver”

The Ultimate Guide to All G-SHOCKs — composed by Experts

I can’t call myself a fan of the British virtual group GORILLAZ, but after opening the package with a limited creation called GA-2000GZ-3, I started to think about it … I turned on YouTube a mix of all the GORILLAZ songs for a deeper immersion in the theme and it started…

The GA-2000GZ-3 model has become perhaps the most sensational limit of 2019.

At first, everyone thought that the new product would only appear on the British market [in principle, it is not surprising, because it is, as it were, the birthplace of Gorillaz], but with the growth of demand from other countries it became clear that there should be scaling to other continents. I still can’t find information on the circulation of the model, because for the limit it is usually an open quantity. Not the point. The fact that watches can be easily bought in Russia, Ukraine and other countries in OFFICIAL stores already speaks of the phenomenal popularity of the creation [p.s. limits do not often reach our stores].

Collaboration is always WIN-WIN. Both for the watch manufacturer and for the music group. This is the case when two completely different audiences discover each other. Personally, I rediscovered Gorillaz, and someone probably discovered the wonderful G-Shock.

Almost all of my Casio watch unpackings consist of a primitive process “I take out my watch and put the box with the packaging under the table”. GA-2000GZ-3 forced the dumb to change their attitude to this process, and now the boxes are on the table with the watch itself.

It’s just that the designers worked so well on the animated characters that even his son thought about a toy, not about a clock. Each box received a brand design that can be viewed for hours in search of heroes from famous [for someone] clips. Gorillaz fans will surely find cool moments for themselves, and I will probably stop reviewing the box)) and move on to the watch itself.

The highlight of the GA-2000GZ-3 is its unique green color texture that covers the strap and timepieces. It is also worth noting the white inscriptions on the bezel, because they also give the watch a certain richness of image.

The green color is very nice and pretty, while the strap has also become an excellent military addition. The camouflage pattern was chosen with good reason, because exactly the same texture is found in the first Gorillaz album of the same name.

In general, you definitely will not get bored with such watches: the novelty simply makes you attract attention. So camouflage in this case plays a slightly different role.

Personally, I really enjoyed wearing the watch – it seemed so pleasant to me [p.s. always write a review in the “watch.

The structure of the Carbon Core Guard case made it possible to make the watch lighter and more durable.

The back cover of the GA-2000 is made of stainless steel [ensures the tightness of the case], but also received an additional polymer cover, which protects the body from shock.

Such a solid reinforcement of the body turned out.

I also really liked the form factor for attaching the strap to the case.

Thanks to the curved “ears,” the strap can lie flat on the table [trivial convenient], while in many other shocks this is not always possible.

The Hands Shift Feature

When the hour or minute hands overlap the LCD, they are temporarily diverted to ensure the visibility of the electronic window. It is activated very simply – double-clicking on the backlight button.

Although it is already considered a certain standard for the ana-DJ format, its presence is still insanely happy. Other functions are very typical for Casio electronic watches: world time, stopwatch, timer, alarm clock, date and others.

Do not forget, the GA-2000 belong to the budget segment, so DO NOT expect them to have solar power or synchronization with the phone. This watch is still in the conservative understanding of quartz: when there is a battery and quartz accuracy, this is enough.

Let’s go back to the packaging, namely to additional accessories. I was surprised to see another strap in the kit + a special “screwdriver” for convenient removal of the first strap.

In fact, the presence of the tool is not very critical, because the “levers” on the back of the strap can also be reached with the fingernail, but with a screwdriver it can be done several times faster.

As for the additional strap, it is clearly more boring in style, but still with a similar military texture.

In any case, a convenient replacement allows you to radically change the style of your favorite watch and this, of course, is cool.
