Garish, Metallic G-Shocks ..Whatever GA200SH and G8900SH

Well, yes, it is a little confusing. What has been released in Japan (January 2013) as Metallic Colors is being labeled in the USA market as Garish Colors. Adding to the mystery of their series naming, Casio released a set they called Garish Black, back in May 2012 that were hardly what we’d consider garish and are not at all cosmetically related to this new series. But what’s in a name, anyway?

What we have here, five new watches in the “Classic” category (collection), coming to the USA market any minute are products that are fill-in colorways in the GA200 series and the venerable G8900 series with the nomenclature designation “SH” which signifies their bands and cases are sparkly metallic with a “semi-glossy” coating (according to Casio International) and therefore “Garish.”

The analog-digital GA200SHs will retail for $160 and the all-digital G8900SHs will be priced at $110. The distribution of these products is slated to begin soon in G-Shock’s fashion and jewelry tier and where they are typically available for actual purchase for as long as a day or two. Don’t dispair; if you want one, there is usually a way.

  1. Casio has done a good job with these new G shocks they feel a bit heavier than previous models and the build quality seems to be better as well.
