Casio G-SHOCK Announces “Neo Tokyo” Series Inspired by Anime Films
My daily wear watch is an Apple Watch, but before I started wearing it I always wore Casio watches. In particular I wore a Casio G-SHOCK watch. I remember actually getting it at Epcot of all places. I have always been a watch fanatic. As a kid it was Swatch watches and not I love my smart watch. Casio has just released a new G-SHOCK called the “Neo Tokyo” inspired by Anime. Keep reading for more details.
Casio G-SHOCK announces the all-new, “Neo Tokyo” series of men’s timepieces. Inspired by the colors of the futuristic metropolises of classic anime films from the 1980’s, the four new watches boast blacked-out bezels with yellow, red, and blue hands as dial accents to represent the city’s lights.
The series is made up of G-SHOCK’s most popular digital and analog-digital models, featuring updated styles from the DW6900, GA140, GA700, and GAS100 line ups.
The GA140BMC-1A boasts a large case design reflective of the new GA140 series, with an updated dial that includes an analog speed indicator sub-dial and LCD displays at both 6 and 12 o’clock. Boasting an extra-large case is the GA700BMC-1A, which comes with a front-facing LED light button and 3D bold hands to provide ease of use from day to night. Arriving in a mid-size digital model, the DW6900BMC-1A comes in one of the original G-SHOCK case shapes and has a built-in multi-function alarm and flash alert.
As the fourth timepiece and part of the Tough Solar GAS100 collection, the GAS100BMC-1A comes with the line’s classic stainless steel bezel, showcasing a simple design that goes well with a wide range of fashion styles. The large case size and double Super LED light provides maximum visibility in low light conditions. A video has been created to showcase the features of the new Neo Tokyo series – watch here
