G-SHOCK unveils its Tone-On-Tone Protector Pack, housing muted renditions of the GA-2100 and DW-5600 lines, including the teal GA-2100PT-2A, dark gray GA-2100PT-8A and mustard yellow DW-5600PT-5. Each model is equipped with a protective bumper, a stainless steel component that locks atop the case to prevent damage or scuff marks to the watch crystal and face.
The octagonal GA-2100PT-2A and GA-2100PTS-8A models feature a streamlined band measuring 45.4 millimeters wide. The rectangular DW-5600PT-5 is a slimmer, more compact option for the wrist at 42.8 millimeters. This range inherits the case design and resin strap of the original DW-5000C, released in 1983. Compared to other analog-digital offerings from the GA-2100 line, the Tone-On-Tone models are simplified executions with essential functions: world time in 48 cities, a 1/100-second stopwatch, a countdown timer, five daily alarms, and G-SHOCK’s proprietary Super Illuminator LED. Minor specs distinguish the DW-5600PT-5, notably an EL backlight, a multi-function alarm and a flash alert. Each watch is shock-resistant and features 20-bar water resistance.
As for the overall construction, the monochromatic, matte-finished colorways achieve a relatively minimalist design, and each face protector tonally matches its respective dial color. The dial is protected by mineral glass, while carbon fiber-reinforced fine resin comprises the band and case for extreme durability and shock resistance. For those that prefer the flexibility of the GA-2100’s analog-digital functionality, the hand-shift feature allows you to modify the hands for an unobstructed view of the display.
