In February 2007, Casio released a gold-colored G-SHOCK® watch in the G-011 line. This model is a part of Casio’s new-style G-SHOCK “C3” (C-cubed) series.
The C3 series, offered since October 2005, maintains the rugged G-SHOCK look but sports an innovative design that appeals to the fashion-conscious young people. The three C’s stand for “creative, contemporary, and conceptual.” C3 watches create a smart look with bold forms and exciting colors, and are popular with trend-setting young people who appreciate European fashion.
The Casio G-Shock G-011BD-9ADR blends beautiful curves extending from the case to the band with a linear-looking square face for a pleasing three-dimensional effect. It also increases the choice of metallic colors in the G-011 line.
Ion plating is used on the entire watch body to achieve the gold finish, and the dial is rendered in black. The combination of brilliant gold and fearless black creates a stunning but rugged look.
The Casio Gold G-SHOCK® Watch also boasts a full range of functions, including a convenient world time display for 27 cities worldwide and a stopwatch accurate to 1/100 of a second, as well as alarm and timer functions.
Along with gold G-shock watch, Casio also introduced the silver G-011D-1ADR from the G-011 line. It features an all-silver body coupled with a black face dial.
