Casio’s twists and turns in style, mechanics and distribution are enough to make a blogger dizzy. The new GAC-100RG in white and rose gold is anomolous in the bigger scheme – all analog, a technological back step with three subdials, a large second hand, a screw down crown, and an old-fashioned (circular disk) date window and this writer wonders, “where did this come from?”
Interest (judging by the metrics of this blog) in this series is very low. The format may lend itself well to future special and limited edition collaborative releases (where features and benefits usually take a back seat to colorways, size, and celebatory involvement). But perhaps the introduction of the rose gold colorway will breath a higher degree of attention to the series.
It (GAC110RG-7) is priced at 19,000 yen in it’s Japanese iteration (around $240 USD), but is expected (as is typical) to be much less expensive if/when it is released into other marketplaces.
