G-SHOCK is the watch brand that is always finding ways to incorporate world culture icons into exciting new designs, and these new models are themed on garish colors of silver and blue.
The base model is the round face DW-6900 with three graphic displays, which has been the base model for a number of collaborations with world-famous brands. These models are the first to add a brilliant deposition mirror finish to the face of the DW-6900, creating the look of a fine accessory. The stainless steel front button adds further to the overall brilliance of this model. This new mirror dial model is yet another variation of the DW-6900, which has been an essential part of the G-SHOCK lineup in different forms since 1995.
Hollow case structure. Based on a realization that “shocks are not transmitted inside a bouncing rubber ball,” the structure was designed to let the module float inside the case, relieving shocks transmitted from outside. Today, the module’s shock resistance is realized through further technical innovations. But the revolutionary tough structure that gave G-SHOCK its origin began here. All-directional covering. If the watch is dropped, the protruding bezel fully enclosing it absorbs the shock, protecting the buttons directly connected to the module and alleviating shocks from all directions. The bezel also guards the surface of the crystal. The band is curved stiffly at the point of connection with the case, moreover, enabling it to serve as a shock absorber and prevent direct shocks to the back of the case. Protective cushioning of key parts. The crystal oscillator and other critical parts inside the module are guarded individually by cushioning material. Any strong shock to the watch causes immediate distortion of the cushioning inside the module, preventing contact failure and malfunction. Japan Quality. Constructed with genuine quality, CASIO products provide truly practicable applications in which functionality and beauty combine. The leading-edge LSI technologies and skilled craftsmanship that give life to CASIO watches exemplify the quality Japan boasts in the world marketplace.
