Casio G-Shock C-Cube G-8100A-7DR Review


This is not one of your usual bulky g-shock watches that is known to mankind. Casio Gshock G-8100A-7DR is a digital watch that has the durability of analog gshock watches, minus the bulkiness. Its style is futuristic but simple so its easy to partner it with ordinary clothes or funky shoes.

It comes in different colors: all white, black, purple, steampunked (bronze), red, yellow, black on white ,green & blue.

This watch has auto light switch is turned on , it automatically turns on the backlight of the watch when turned on a certain reading angle. Auto light switch is disabled after 6 hours of turning it on to save battery.

Battery life is approximately 5 years.

Shock (motocross, chain saw operation, rock drill operation and so on) and Water Resistant up to 20 bars (splashes, rain, car washing, swimming, snorkeling, diving but not scuba diving).

The watch is very light and stylish. I chose white cause its easier to partner with almost all colors of my clothing and shoes.
