DOVER, N.J., Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Casio G-SHOCK introduces new, vibrant colorways for two popular men's street style models ahead of the holiday season. The recently released GA800 model and the iconic DW5600 model will receive a bold new look inspired by sporty colors and the current throwback street trends.

In addition, each model includes standard G-SHOCK technology of 200M water resistance and shock resistance, as well as a 1/100th second stopwatch and countdown timer.
All models will retail for $99 beginning in December 2017. The DW5600-TB-1, DW5600TB-4A, DW5600TB-6, and DW5600TB-4B will be available for purchase at the G-SHOCK Soho Store and select fashion apparel boutiques, while the GA800SC-2A, GA800SC-6A and GA800SC-7A will be available for purchase at G-SHOCK retailers, including select Macy's, www.gshock.com, and the G-SHOCK Soho Store.
CASIO's shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe's dream of 'creating a watch that never breaks'. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as 'the toughest watch of all time'. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe's mantra "never, never give up." www.gshock.com
