This Retro-Style Watch That Will Complete Your OOTD
For most '90s kids, there was one watch name that stood out from the rest: the Casio G-Shock. It was, after all, the decade where shock-proofing was all the rage, showing up in everything from phones to CD players. Ruggedness was a highly sought-after quality, and the G-Shock was known to be one of the sturdiest models on the market.
As time passed, the watch evolved, getting thinner and sleeker. While the design shifted away from sporty, favoring a more stylish silhouette, it continued to get even tougher. Advances in material development ensured that the G-Shock's durability wouldn't be compromised, even though the case itself got progressively thinner.
Still, a lot of its followers missed the hardy designs they grew up with. With the watch's latest model, however, Casio has managed to blend the G-Shock's classic look with modern aesthetics. The G-Shock GA-2100 toes the line between rugged and stylish, giving it a flexible look that works with almost every wardrobe.
It starts with a return to the octagonal case featured on the model debuted in 1983. The strong lines give off the impression of strength within its structure, which is a key feature of the G-Shock. The GA-2100 is made from a high-strength resin, which is reinforced by carbon fibers to make it remarkably resistant to impact. The Carbon Core Guard design also allowed Casio to give the G-Shock its thinnest case ever, measuring only 11.8 mm thin.
The slimmer body and band make the G-Shock look modern despite its throwback shape, giving the watch a retro-chic look. It's a timepiece you can wear both while hiking in the great outdoors and while going out for a dressy date In the city.
Beyond aesthetics, the G-Shock GA-2100 features water resistance up to 200 m, making it an ideal watch for your adventures. At the same time, its three-year battery life ensures that the watch stays low-maintenance, which is an underappreciated quality in today's busy world.
If you're looking for a watch that you can wear with anything, as well as take anywhere, the Casio G-Shock GA-2100 might be worth a look. Head on over to the nearest Casio retailer to check it out; you might just find your new go-to timepiece.
