G-Shock is on the verge of releasing a watch that pays tribute to the entire cast of Master of G characters encapsulated into one watch. Each character is inspired after a specific new feature or technology added to the Master of G Series since 1993. This particular series was and is still used as a testing ground for new innovations and to be introduced later into standard models. Commonly, these quirky animated characters are engraved on the back of each new Master of G watch, and even though they may not be seen visually on current models, these characters represent the progression of tech used in the very G-Shocks that we wear on our wrists today. Now the whole gang (18 unique characters to be exact) gets the spotlight to themselves with the G-Shock Universe.
At first glance, the G-Shock Universe appears to have this random distorted pattern printed onto the case and strap. In a way it’s dizzying, but draws the viewer in, sort of like an optical illusion. But once the eyes settle in, the characters slowly come into view. The bezel itself displays three Master of G alumni; Lungman, Riseman and Gulfman. The rest of the characters are intentionally printed throughout the strap and on the dial framing the negative LCD display.
