    Re: New GA-2100

    Lol I did pay full blown retail just without tax. But I know for sure that I have to pay more for it in my country or might just have to wait a little longer until they offer some discount. But it just 2,000 yen more I already forgot that I pay extra to get it. The watch is very nice.

    Thanks for your suggestion on Yodobashi.

    Here's a new video from gshock highfashion that compares the three models.

    Arrival as promised by DHL.

    Here's a quick personal review based on an hour or so:

    Like it's Carbon Core predecessor, the GA-2000, it's very light and for me really comfortable on the wrist.

    The carbon core looks like it surrounds the whole case, with the bezel obviously over the top of it.

    As others have mentioned, there is hardly any depth to the bezel around the crystal, probably 1mm? This doesn't bother me too much as my life and job won't bring any danger of scratches anyway, so a slight lack of protection isn't a huge issue.

    The straps are again fitted with the new quick release spring bars. I haven't been able to measure the width, but they at least look like they would match a 5600/6900, etc. Whether they would actually fit one of these is another question as I also have no idea as to how the spring bars are sized at the ends or if they would fit into other watches lugs. They also sit on the backplate at a slight angle, which looks odd but hasn't made it uncomfortable at all.

    Onto the face of the watch - It's red!! It has a slight depth to it, much like the design of other GA models recently, which looks nice IMO. Literally everything is red apart from the lumed parts of the hands! No lume on the hour markers on this one. To be honest here, I am finding it slightly difficult to read the day of the week "wheel" because of the all over colour, but at the right angle and without light shining directly on the face you can see the day letters.

    The digital section is no surprise in the reading of department, easy to see in the right light and angle! Not a major game changer as a slight twist of the wrist makes it viewable. The led is set between 4 & 5, and mainly lights up the digital section, and same as the GA-2000, has a cool fade out rather than a quick switch off. It has a 1 or 3 second illumination. It's also easily strong enough to illuminate the whole face in the dark. I can't really picture the lume on this one as it's evening here and until I can get strong daylight on it, it remains to be seen what a proper "charge" will do.

    I like the hexagonal bezel, round face design, and size wise looks good on my 7.5" wrist.

    So all in all, another nice, well priced addition to my collection. Photos below.

    Cheers!

    Re: New GA-2100

    Got it
    Fresh from Spain!

    Budget red out

    If I didn't know this was a gshock, I'd swear it was one of those cheapies you get at Walmart. Except the cheapie is solar and has a snooze alarm :/

    But it rides very nicely, very comfortable.

    Almost impossible to read tho.
