Stay true, constantly advancing

G-SHOCK has always embraced the spirit of challenge in it’s untiring pursuit of the ultimate toughness. It was 1982 when the resolve to build a watch that would never break produced the very first G-SHOCK — the DW5000. Not much later, in 1989, the AW500 arrived, offering the same shock resistance but in an analog watch. Fast forward to today, and the GA2100 line hits the scene — the timeless spirit of toughness those two epoch-making models, fused with cutting-edge technologies to create timepieces like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

The concept of the GA2100 delivered from the DW5000 and AW500. The design inherited from the DW5000. A commitment to delivering the slimmest, most compact form, but with all the strength of it’s predecessors intact — a feat achieved with the Carbon Core Guard structure as well as a new and improved module design, inheriting the origin while advancing further still, the GA2100 beautifully compliments today’s lifestyles.

The new G-SHOCK standard-bearer is here.

1983: DW5000

The very first G-SHOCK — the DW5000 — debuted in 1983. Its timeless design, perfected right from the beginning, was born of a pursuit of the ultimate toughness eschewing all hints of the extraneous.

1989: AW500

A design concept soon inherited by the first analog G-SHOCK model — the AW500 — released in 1989. The concept was realized with a rock-solid design that looked almost like it was carved out of a single block of resin, removing everything non-essential.

2019: The GA2100

The first GA2100 watch was introduced in 2019, expanding the possibilities of toughness and analog style. Heir to the DW5000 and AW500’s conceptual design frameworks, it leveraged the latest technologies to capture the essence of their identities in a new physical form. This meant nothing short of creating a new standard-bearer for G-SHOCK, re-envisioned from the vintage point of the brand’s beginnings, now some 30 years after the AW500’s debut.

New Technologies, New Design

New Technologies, New Design

The development concept: slim and compact. The determination to eschew the extraneous realized not just in design, but in size as well. It took revolutionary new technologies — from the thin module to the Carbon Core Guard structure — to achieve this. Distilling the very essence of the original DW-5000 design, the watch introduces a reconstructed form that is sure to integrate smoothly with contemporary lifestyles and fashion.

Technology

Paris, Hamburg, New York and Shanghai... impressions gathered from points all around the globe informed the design work. Countless sketches were made, and designs drawn and reviewed in a process of painstaking trial and error. At last a new watch was born, featuring a minimalist design with an octagonal bezel.

Insatiable Challenge

Insatiable Challenge

This was no design merely pursuing simplicity. The designers’ intent inspires the GA2100 down to the nest details, like dimensional dial and index. The monochromatic color scheme features an optimized combination of hues hand-selected from a range of color charts.

Challenges

With pride in its unchanging form, the G-SHOCK mission is one of continuous advancement, always transcending the times, conventional wisdom, and the limits of imagination. With a toughness emblematic of the new era, the GA2100 has arrived.

Technology
Carbon Core Guard Structure

The module is protected with a carbon fiber-reinforced resin case. The special characteristics of the carbon fiber material — light weight, high strength and superior weather resistance — were leveraged to make the case as slim and compact as possible, with no compromise on shock resistance.

The Challenge of a Thinner Case

The Challenge of a Thinner Case

The developers pursued a thinner design while still satisfying the original G-SHOCK criteria for shock resistance. They strengthened the external structure and slimmed the module, achieving wafer-thin at just 11.8mm.

Thin Module

Thin Module

The module was slimmed by miniaturizing the componentry and employing optimized, high-density mounting for the circuit board structure. Combined with the Carbon Core Guard structure, these efforts made for an astonishingly smaller, slimmer case.
