Image used with kind permission of Casio Benelux.When I attended the Shock The World 2011 leg in Amsterdam June 16th there was a lot to see. One thing my eye fell on was a poster of X-Large clothing. The big Gorilla, that is featured in their logos, is holding a big G-Shock. It’s probably no coincidence he is holding a GD-100-1BER. This model is marketed by Casio as an X-Large model.
Above: First poster X-Large x G-Shock Collaboration, probably from 2007or 2008 . Middle:Second poster: "XLarge Recomended!" from 2011. Below: Graphics of the 25th Anniversary of G-Shock T-Shirt by X-Large.
Funny thing is, I have visited two X-Large stores in Japan. The biggest sizes they sell there is L (and Size L is about European size M). A pity, because they make very cool shirts. I bought a Be@rbrick instead, kind out of frustration (^o^).
Left the GA-110B-4, right the GD-100-1B.So what’s on board this X-Large watch. It is pretty much a basic G-Shock, but then bigger. For a basic G-Shock it has quite a lot of features on-board. It’s actually recognizable as a basic model on the G-Shock Perfect Search website, as basic models do not have a date of release mentioned (I wish they did actually).
