    Seem to look awesome!

    So this was the one we saw on the wall picture at Casio's Baselworld booth. This one is definitely on my watch list now!

    This changes everything!! I thought this series (according to Clement Wong it is the Garish Gold series) was black and gold, and now it looks like all of these models are brown and gold instead??? Yikes!!! Not only does the 110 look good, so does that GD-350, and the GAC-100 too!! Oh dear....

    Gorgeous new line! The br standing for brown (resin).
    Looks like a deep dark chocolate brown close to black. I love it.

    Agreed. This is looking much better than I was originally picturing.

    Only the 6900 and GA-110 are brown though the GD-350 and GAC-100 are still black which we can see by their designated n#1 and not 5 at the end. Strangely tough even the GD-350 and GAC-100 still have BR in their name suggesting Brown, so it is confusing!

    Very puzzling indeed.... guess we'll have to wait for better pics. This first bunch all looked black at first which made me overlook them, but now at least two are brown. We'll just have to wait .... again.

    So is the resin actually brown...? Will need to see these in person I think... I would love to see more brown models, casio really neglects the -5 colour code :)
    More chocolate Gs please!

    Hm, I have to admit - I hate gold on a G-Shock . I want a red GD-350 (orange, blue or yellow would also be ok) - not this!

    cheers, Sedi

    Got this one as well. the color is actually more gunmetal brown rather than chocolate.

    Sold my GA110GB since I had problems with telling time in the dark. this one is the positive gold display is a bit better.

    I was going to originally pass on my reservation for this one but it looks much better when you see the actual unit.
