In a nod to the 1990s, Casio has released a new throwback G-Shock watch

Casio has released a new G-Shock watch inspired by the internet in 1995. An Indonesian fashion company, Paradise Youth Club, collaborated with Casio to create the limited-edition DW-6900 watch.

The watch has a vivid green face and primary button, with a silver bezel and strap complementing the green and silver elements. In addition to a shock- and water-resistant casing, a 200-meter water-resistance rating, a countdown timer, an alarm, and an auto calendar, the DW-6900’s other components are not yet known in full.

An electroluminescent backlight for the DW-6900 G-Shock watch was originally introduced in 1995. “The digital network that became the major power source” in people’s life during that age is reflected in the watch’s backlight, which displays the term “power source” in red.

Packaged in a box that resembles a CRT monitor, the watch has the inscription “Guide to the Paradise Highway” on the reverse.

Special edition watches will be produced in a limited number of cases. Paradise Youth Club is selling it now, and Casio will begin selling it directly on February 25.

Back in time

For this isn’t the first time Casio has revived the DW-6900 from its design archives. Casio will celebrate the watch’s silver jubilee in 2020 with a limited-edition version. Digital dials in shades of blue, pink, and green adorned the tops of the black DW6900SP-1 and silver DW-6900SP-7 watches’ faces.

The DW-5000, DW-5700, and DW-D5500 will all be celebrating significant anniversaries in the next several years, so we can anticipate a slew of special versions from Casio.
