Harkening back to the fast-paced, neon-filled aesthetics of classic ’80s anime films, G-SHOCK introduces its “Neo Tokyo” series. The visual characteristics that spurred fanfare for the cult classics are reimagined in the label’s new GA140BMC and GA700BMC timepieces, displayed here in an editorial that underscores the timepieces’ inspiration.

Retro-futurism clashes together, allowing users to experience fashion-forward stylings with vintage undertones. G-SHOCK’s most popular analog and digital pieces receive a modern revamp, complete with blacked-out bezels. Vivid accents of yellow, red and blue on the dials offset the dark tones to create an effect of vibrant lights cutting through city nights — just like the futuristic metropolises of the decades-old anime films. Each watch also boasts signature performance features for a rugged wearer, such as shock resistance and water resistance up to 200 meters, providing a balance between utility and style.

Check out images of the GA140BMC and GA700BMC models above, which are available now for at $99 USD at select G-SHOCK stockists including Macy’s, G-SHOCK’s Soho store and gshock.com.
