Casio launches limited-edition G-SHOCK watch- DW-6900BS-8DR
The limited edition Casio G-SHOCK watch DW-6900BS-8DR has been executed in a lustrous metallic silver finish, as a symbol of the progress toward the future represented by G-SHOCK in the motif of a statue newly on display in the Casio booth at Baselworld 2013. With 5,000 units to be released worldwide, this special model is one in a series designed to mark the 30th anniversary of the G-SHOCK shock-resistant watch this month. The design of the new DW-6900BS-8DR is based on the popular DW-6900, characterized by a rounded shape that arose from the pursuit of even greater toughness. As a symbol of the G-SHOCK affinity with the future, this 30th anniversary model has been given a metallic silver finish that makes the entire watch gleam.
In addition to front and side buttons with a mirror finish, the dial has been given a brushed-metal look that reflects light differently depending on the angle. The white-on-black LCD further accentuates the brilliance of the futuristic metallic silver look. The watch’s back plate is engraved with the G-SHOCK 30th anniversary logo designed by Eric Haze, Brooklyn base graphic Artist, while the strap keeper is emblazoned with Since 1983, and three stars to represent 30 years.
