Functional beauty in a new toughness-oriented design, built tough with Carbon Core Guard
Innovative watches that suit up great with outdoor styles, built with the Carbon Core Guard structure. With an exterior design that incorporates six front screws and a front button, not to mention the analogue dial with an indicator inspired by an automotive brake disc, these watches deliver functional beauty worthy of the G-SHOCK name.
Offering strength, lightness and excellent weather resistance, a carbon fibre-reinforced resin case protects the module. Furthermore, with a glass fibre-reinforced resin cover enclosing the case back, the watch is slim at just 12.8mm.
Front design with tough presence
Six front screws secure the bezel. The case features a front button for operation of the light. While structural and functional in their utility, the components serve as design accents as well, distinguishing the watch face with a tough look.
Functional beauty with finer detail: Three-dimensional disk indicator
An intricately shaped disk indicator is placed at the 9 o’clock position. Sharpness of form right down to the cut of the edges is achieved with state-of-the-art metal moulding technology. Vapour deposition further emphasizes the metallic texture of the GA-2200M. Combined with an inset dial ring and irregular shaped LCD on the dial, the watch creates a mechanised look.
DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY
Powerful and easy to use: Oversized side buttons
Despite slimming the case, we were still able to increase the size of the side buttons. Knurling on upper surfaces enhances their ease of operation. Inserting the buttons between the bezel and back cover gives even the side view of the watch a gear-like appearance.
