New-Era-x-GShock-GA110NE-9A.jpg

G-Shock's imaginative 30th Anniversary collaborations continue to thrill and excite as the brand introduces another joint effort with industry leading hat purveyors New Era.

New Era’s latest collaborative release with G-Shock is an an extra large GA110 with a black and metallic gold colour scheme inspired by the sizing sticker on its legendary 59Fifty fitted hat. The watch, scheduled to release in November under the model number GA110NE-9A ($180), with plenty of flair and style, not to mention technical superiority. This accompanied by a New Era 59FIFTY fitted cap with the G-Shock logo in smart gold embroidery.

Shock and Water Resistant, the watch is bundled with G-Shock’s Magnetic Resist technology to guarantee ongoing accuracy, an Auto LED Light with Afterglow, 48-city World Time , 1/1000th Second Stopwatch, Countdown Timer and 5 daily Alarms with Snooze Alarm. And just in case that's not enough to sell it, the watch’s collectable packaging is designed to mimic a New Era hat.

I don't think this collaboration was ever meant to be a functional watch, so I'm good with the visually more interesting/complex 110 on this one. Just solidified my purchase of it yesterday when they get on island next month. :thumbup:

I was hanging out after work at the local Casio's watch store as they were receiving their deliveries today. Actually had no plans of getting this but couldn't resist.

Tyko Moon after a more then 1 year break have finally made a video again and this time it is the first video on this new awesome New Era piece:

In that video he also mentions about release time in the G-Shock store in NY. First week in November it seems...

I, surprisingly, picked this up on the UK release just last week, since I happened to drop by the G-Shock flagship store in London on the day of its release. I wanted to do a proper unboxing thread but have been way too busy lately!

I have to say at first I didn't pay much attention to it, but after seeing it in the flesh, I think it's one of the nicer GA-110 collabs out there...

A couple of observations that made me pull the trigger... I have the famously unreadable GA-110GB and I do like the gold on black colours, but I find the New Era model has much better readability in general, mainly due to the matte gold tones rather than the full-on blingy gold that the GB has. Also the white tips on the hands make a big difference. Now the LED light is actually useful as I can see the hands properly!

It has a dark jelly keeper, I haven't heard it mentioned elsewhere but when you look closely at the bezel it's actually also translucent jelly-type resin, with the gold tone on the surface, so it gives it a somewhat unique look amongst GA-110s, hence it did look much more attractive to me when I tried it on than from the stock pics :)

Anyway, all the above coupled with the 'special' 59 Cap package made it stand out enough for me to make an impulse buy on it, the other thing that prompted me was that the store offered a one day only 15% discount on another 'normal' G if I got the New Era, I had my eye on one of these so i couldn't resist :)

the price for the new era is up the roof.
Yeah I noticed that too. Especially in Asia. You can still find a few around the 26000 Yen price though.

Its just been released in Europe and one of my regular online suppliers sold out immediately but I managed to source one from another reliable seller.
