Sporting an all-new case silhouette and both analog and digital readouts, the G-Shock GA700-1A Watch is an ideal entry point to this iconic brand. The dial and hands protrude outward, giving the watch a 3D look and making it more legible, while the front-button super illuminator LED light makes darkness an afterthought. It also offers world time, a stopwatch, a countdown timer, multiple alarms, and, of course, the shock- and water-resistance the G-Shock line is known for. Available in three colorways.
