Casio G-SHOCK G-STEEL Series
The G-SHOCK phenomenon continues till today and collectors are increasing. Now Casio releases new additions to the G-STEEL series of watches which feature layered faces with a metallic finish. The G-STEEL series, part of the G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches, is popular for its range of colours that makes the most of a layered guard structure, which boasts a double-layer bezel combining different materials.
The release includes the GST-210D, GST-210B, and GST-200CP watches, all featuring the double-layer bezel unique to the G-STEEL line. The latest models also feature watch faces with stacked components that add depth and power to the watch design.
The watch faces have a metal base that is built upon using components with a metallic finish to give added depth, including large numerals, a stylish bar separating the LCD areas, and a disk-shaped mode indicator for instant recognition. The impressive, lustrous design gives the watches both a luxurious feel and a street smart look. The practical, high-luminance LED light helps the wearer to tell the time in dimly lit environments such as nightclubs.
The wealth of variations include the shiny metal-banded GST-210D, the GST-210B with a resin band that contrasts with its metal case, and the GST-200CP, which also has a metal case, but with a resin band featuring a metal crystal grain pattern.
