With winter quickly approaching and the temperatures rapidly dropping what a better time to get a new G-Shock, and a winter G-Shock at that!
The G-Shock GLS-8900 Low Temp Editions were brought out just in time for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, (the funky colour range at least was refreshed.) These are branded as Low Temp and claim to function to -20 degrees celsius. Hopefully we don’t experience that this winter but if we do at least the watch should keep on ticking.
A full colour range to suit every pallet was released, with black, blue, pink and a yellow. Myself, not having a blue G-Shock decided on the blue. It was only when I received it I noted that the blue is actually flecked, you can’t see in the photos that there is almost a metallic fleck throughout the strap, and in my opinion it looks really smart.
Finally, this is a big G, not GX-56 big but as you can see from the comparison photos with my GA-1000 and from the photos of the watch on my wrist this is a good sized G!
