Oftentimes, a watch will try to turn heads with a design so flashy it demands your attention. But for this Timepiece Thursday, the Casio G-Shock GX56BB-1 piqued your interest with its blacked-out stealthy styling and anti-bling appeal. As part of the Black Out series, the GX56BB-1 takes on a low-key, tonal aesthetic thanks to its matte black resin build. It still makes a statement on the wrist, with a larger 42mm case, beefy proportions, and oversized buttons and bezel. Because it's a G-Shock, it's packed with plenty of features you'd appreciate in an EDC watch: 200M water resistance, shock- and mud-resistance, solar power, multiple timezones and alarms, as well as a full automatic backlight with afterglow for low-light visibility. For a stealthy, larger G-Shock at an affordable price point, check out the GX56BB-1 t the link below.
