In 2019, G-SHOCK debuted the GA-2100 series, a slim, ultra-tough watch made of shock-resistant resin and internally reinforced with carbon fiber. It featured modern components and enhanced usability, setting a precedent for affordable lifestyle watches on the horizon. Durable, reliable and defined by its contemporary octagonal case design, the GA-2100 was an undisputed hit amongst collectors and G-SHOCK loyalists — known to complement the wrist in any environment. The prolific watchmaker’s latest offering adds the lustrous GA-2100GB-1A and GA-2100SB-1A to the lineup, each adorned with metallic silver- and gold-toned elements, paired back to a glossy and matte black strap, bezel and case.

The black and gold GA-2100GB-1A and black and silver GA-2100SB-1A are decidedly attractive, streamlined iterations that take the series’ ruggedness to elevated heights. As the slimmest watch currently produced by the brand at 11.8mm in depth, both watches deliver a shock-resistant structure and, measuring 48.5 mm in length and 45.4 mm in width, a refined, stylish wrist feel that’s leaner in appearance while retaining the classic thickness and reliable exterior of the DW5000. The GA-2100GB-1A, in particular, features glossy black resin for the bezel and band, offset by a gold-toned dial (treated with a vapor deposition) with a subtle shimmering effect. By contrast, the smokey GA-2100SB-1A’s black and silver combination draws your focus to the three-dimensional case design and circular hairline finish applied to the dial and index marks.

Neither sport nor street stands up to its shock-resistant structure, and specs like 20-bar water resistance, world time (31 time zones / 48 cities), a 1/100 stopwatch, five daily alarms and a countdown timer provide versatile utility in the most unconventional of settings. At the hour and minute hands, neobrite treatments boost visibility in addition to the built-in Super Illuminator LED.

The GA-2100 has earned a reputation for a reason, and even after solidifying its place in G-SHOCK’s massive archive, the series continues to evolve, better suiting its wearers with each reincarnation. It may not be your first watch, but the GA-2100 will stand the test of time as your last.

Take a closer look at the GA-2100GB-1A and GA-2100SB-1A in the lookbook above. Shop and browse both models by visiting G-SHOCK’s website. Read more about the brand’s latest collections here.
