If you’ve been following Casio’s recent popularity (and I’m not saying that they weren’t popular before), you would’ve noticed how their seemingly no-nonsense utilitarian excess aesthetics is currently trending very well in the global street culture market.

Well, the brand recently updated their line’s design language by embracing their cult status and recent fashion trends into account by further playing up the details on the watches. For example the G-001 has a visible strap insertion. Well, it’s not an insertion anymore. It’s the added curve underneath the case that curves on to your wrist. Usually, this is a metal or plastic insertion that curves the strap on to your wrist or the curve is part of the case design. However, in the G-001, they aren’t hiding it, instead they’re using it as a design feature.

Then there’s the perforated insert inside the strap and the details on the back of the case that I simply adore. Other similarly enhanced models include the new large GX56-1A and the GA110B-2 that are seen below.
