G-SHOCK Creates Metal-Clad Version of an Iconic Design for the GM2100

Remaining true to its house codes while continuing to push forward in design, G-SHOCK has outfitted one of its newest and most recognizable silhouettes in a metal-covered exterior for the GM2100. Representing a balance of toughness and beauty, the material offers duality, providing durability and shock-resistance and while also elevating aesthetics and style.

The GM2100 features an octagonal shape that G-SHOCK has used since its debut watch and has become synonymous with the brand. Designed as a modern take to the first-ever G-SHOCK and the brand’s first analog model, the GM-2100 offers a slim, 11.8mm form with a sleek exterior. Made from stainless steel with dual mirror and hairline finishes, the material is matched with a damage- and deformation-resistant glass-fiber reinforced resin to protect the case. Driving home its tough body, tiny protrusions on the inner case prevent excessive surface contact with the bezel, which cushions shock to the watch’s interior.

To complement the sharp and bold shape of the GM2100, G-SHOCK offers the watch in three muted, metallic colorways: silver (GM2100-1A), dark blue IP (GM2100N-2A) and dark grey IP with green dial (GM2100B-3A). Each hue emits an eye-catching masculine gleam, thanks to a more matted finish on the top surface balanced with a mirror polish on the sides. Altogether, the timepiece shows off a creative use of material that is at once rugged, elegant and compact (44.4mm /72g).

The GM2100 series is available now at G-SHOCK’s website and the G-SHOCK Soho store for $200-220 USD USD.
