The watchmaker G-SHOCK marked a significant milestone, celebrating 40 years of innovation and resilience in the industry with a grand event that was as much a homage to its past as a toast to the future. The hero of the occasion was the GA2100 series GA2100SKE-7A watch, a sleek embodiment of the brand’s commitment to durability and style.

Its clear coloring and white base, complemented by the robust carbon core guard structure and the iconic octagonal bezel, captured attention as a symbol of G-SHOCK’s evolution and contemporary design ethos.
