Casio India Co. Pvt. Ltd. has announced the release of their new edition of shock-resistant G-SHOCK watches. The new GA-120 watches feature a three-dimensional watch face, which is part of their new design that makes the resin material look almost as if carved out of a block of stone, aiming to convey the tough, street culture look G-SHOCK is known for. The dial has a concave design that sinks into the watch face and a glossy finish, which creates distinctive shadows and a feeling of depth. The lines running vertically and horizontally on the bezel look like they have been carved with a knife and make the solid design stand out even more. The side buttons have an anti-slip surface for more reliable operation.
In addition to standard black and white models, the GA-120 watches are available in a smoky finish metallic Black, Red and Blue combination. These models feature a semi-gloss coating on the dial to achieve an aluminium appearance. The bezel, band and dial are rendered in the same colour, which accentuates the three-dimensional face design and the rest of the bold watch shape. In addition to shock resistance, these watches feature a 1/1000-second stopwatch, along with magnetic resistance. These watches offer easy readability thanks to the three-dimensional design.
