Having graced the faces of hugely popular models in the past, the legacy of the three-eye face design is now carried on to the digital-analog models of the new GA-100/100A lineup in a bold, three-dimensional, large-face design. These new G-Shock watches boast a variety of functions including a 1/1000-second stopwatch, a velocity indicator, and magnetic resistance compliant with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Sure and solid operation is enhanced by over-sized buttons with anti-slip finish, and a large face with easy-to-read displays for viewing the results of important measurements.
The functionality of these new basic models is apparent on the design of the watch face. In addition to the main hour and minute hands, the watches display setting functions and speeds on LCDs at the 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock positions and on the analog dial with a small hand at the 12 o’clock position. The dynamic symmetric design of the GA-100/100A models is enhanced by two square LCDs at the 4 o’clock and 8 o’clock positions that display measured times, a calendar, world time and other functions. Beveled-edge dials and 12 raised hour markers provide a three-dimensional depth for bold styling, while rivet-like protrusions on the center right and left of the bezel as well as on the watchband embody G-Shock toughness.
