G-SHOCK has announced a new model to its ever-expansive collection of shock-resistant watches — the G-B001 with a playful double bezel Capsule Tough construction.
While the new watch inherits the classic and retro DW-001 silhouette, its Capsule Tough concept draws inspiration from toy capsules and the excitement that comes from opening them. In the new G-B001, the build is reinforced with a Carbon Core Guard structure, where its resin case is layered on with removable bezels made of stainless steel and urethane.
Three unique colorways are available for the new G-B001, which are marked under the codes MVE, MVA, and MVB. Priced at ¥44,000 JPY (approximately $333 USD), the G-B001MVE is based on the original DW-001 colors — yellow and gray with red accents. Its metal bezel is coated in a rainbow IP to give it a unique iridescent chrome color and mirror-like finish. Additional ombré blue bands and a two-tone orange and green bezel are exclusively available for this colorway, allowing numerous ways for wearers to customize their timepieces.
Arriving in a black and pink design, the G-B001MVA is priced at ¥34,200 JPY (approximately $259 USD), boasting a silver IP metal bezel that stands out even against the eye-catching strap design, which is decked with all-over pink slashes. As for the G-B001MVB, which will retail for ¥33,000 JPY (approximately $250 USD), it features a more subtle color combination of gold IP metal bezel and a gray and translucent urethane layer with matching straps.
The G-B001 watches will be launched on January 27, 2023. For more information, check out G-SHOCK Japan’s official website.
