G-Shock “Gold Tornado” Collection Released To Celebrate Brand’s 35th Birthday
The G-Shock “Gold Tornado” collection became available last month. It dropped during the Japanese brand’s 35th anniversary event at Madison Square Garden.
The event also boasted of a massive exhibition displaying vintage and modern G-Shock watches. There were also new collections like the “Gold Tornado.”
G-Shock’s latest collection features a trio of limited edition watches. These timepieces come in gold and black. Moreover, they pay homage to the brand’s classic silhouettes.
Big, Bad, and Tough
Understated is not a word that would describe the collection. All three timepieces are big, bad, and tough.
The Gravitymaster GPW2000TFB-1A is a 51.7mm watch. It has combination analog and digital displays.
It also has Tough Solar capabilities, and Connect Engine 3-Way. This means that it has GPS, Bluetooth, and solar connectivity. It retails at $750 USD.
The G-Steel GSTB100TFB-1A ($900 USD) is also a digital/analog hybrid but in a larger size. It is 53.8mm and has a carbon fiber bezel resting atop its gold and black case.
Plus, it has an automatic time adjustment feature. This is perfect for jet-setters as you no longer need to manually adjust the watch to the correct timezone.
Lastly, the Frogman GWRD1035-B-1 is the only all-digital model in the collection. It is also the most expensive at $1,100 USD.
The certified 53.3mm diver’s watch features radio connectivity, dive data logging, digital compass, thermometer, moon data, and tide graphs.
