By now, if you’ve handled or worn a G-Shock, you know that the watches tend to be a bit large on the wrist. Part of that is aesthetics, of course, but it’s driven more by the capabilities that are built into the watch. By that, we mean the shock resistance, as well as the various things these watches can do. Recently, they released a new collection – the G-Shock GMS110 – that shrinks things down a bit.
We will note, when we received the information on the G-Shock GMS110, it was very clearly being labelled as a women’s watch. We’re more of the opinion that that sort of gendering is a bit unnecessary for a watch design like this (if not completely), as these are robust watches that will appeal to a number of folks.
Whatever your approach, if you’re just wanting a more compact G-Shock for your wrist, then the G-Shock GMS110 is worth checking out. As compared to the GM-110 series, case diameter is shrunk from 48.8mm to 42mm, thickness goes from 16.9mm to 13mm, and lug-to-lug goes from 51.9mm to 46mm. In other words, a watch that’s going to be a better fit to a number of wrists.
As you can tell from the photos, there are three models in this newer collection, in three different colors: silver, pink gold IP, and grey IP. The GMS110-1A retails for $180, while the GMS110PG-1A and GMS110B-8A are $200. Check them out over at gshock.casio.com
