The GM110NE-1A has a 51.9mm case size same as GA110 profiling with a IP treated metal bezel with golden markings engraved in the it. Continuing with the golden theme, the capped lugs also carry a “1920-2020” lettering to denote the 100th anniversary of New Era Cap Company. The famous 3D dial styling has a horizontal black strip that carries the flag logo of New Era in golden marking and on the other side it has an analogue sub-dial for stopwatch function.
The GM110NE-1A is powered by the same quartz module used in the regular GA110 series. The list of the multi-function includes world-time, 1/100th second chronograph, stopwatch, perpetual calendar, five alarms with one snooze alarm, 24-hour countdown and a backlit dial feature. The battery life is rated by the manufacturer is for about three years.
The rugged case is constructed by resin and the company has offered few options in the wristband. The standard wrist band offered in GM110NE-1A is a durable black fabric made strap with a Kelly green lining with reference to the New Era’s iconic 59FIFTY baseball cap. The iconic cap is dressed with gold embroidered New Era flag logo and gold-tone hardware. The second option available in the wristband is more of a typical G-SHOCK rehearsal with a black urethane strap infused with gold tone markings.
