G-SHOCK’s New ‘CasiOak’ is Headed Straight to the Moon

Move over OMEGA, there’s a new Moon Watch in town, and it’s decidedly more affordable. G-SHOCK, the rugged utility watch brand produced by iconic maker CASIO, has just unveiled the GM-2100MG-1AER Moon Watch, a glitzy gold-laden piece with a lunar scope. Arriving straight from the ‘CasiOak’ collection, the watch brings a certain level of prestige not usually found in a sub $300 piece, but then again, that’s not unusual for G-SHOCK.

On the outside, it’s easy to see where the new piece has drawn its inspiration. Bearing a striking similarity to the recent GM-2100 releases, this version cops the same octagonal metal bezel, however, has been elevated by a stunning gold-tone metal-covered resin case, an aesthetic choice that is mirrored on the black and gold vapour-film dial.

From the moment the new CasiOak is removed from its special collector’s case, the shimmering release is hard to miss. Glitzy additions hide behind every corner, from the gold-toned analog hands to the equally ostentatious gold-toned 3D indices. Contrasting the bold new look is the black strap, which offers a nod to G-SHOCK’s history of rugged wear.

Inside, the GM-2100MG-1AER Moon Watch is a familiar beast. The new G-SHOCK cops all the usual functions fans have come to love from the versatile timepiece, including a stopwatch, auto calendar, day, day of the week, and date. Best of all, the new watch is highly resistant to shocks and is depth rated to 200 metres.

But the real intrigue lies in the price. With retail expected to be around USD$300, the new G-SHOCK GM-2100MG-1AER Moon Watch firmly lands in the affordable category, however, a recent surge in popularity for the aptly monikered CasiOak range has seen prices skyrocket. The 44mm collection is now brimming with hype, and with a limited selection of pieces available, you’d be lucky to find the new Moon Watch for less than USD$1,000. Perhaps all that glitters really is gold, after all.
