Casio's latest retro G-Shock watch is a blast of 1990s nostalgia


Casio has launched a new retro-style G-Shock watch inspired by the internet circa 1995. The limited edition DW-6900 is a collaboration between Casio and Paradise Youth Club, a fashion brand based in Indonesia that specializes in '90s style streetwear.

The watch features a bright green face and main button, plus a silver-colored bezel and strap. We don't yet have full specs for the rest of its components, but if it follows other recent DW-6900 models, we expect it to have a shock-resistant case that's water resistant to 200 meters, countdown timer, alarm, and auto calendar so it always shows the correct date.

The original DW-6900, released in 1995, was the first G-Shock watch with an electroluminiscent backlight. As Hypebeast reports, the watch takes design cues from "the digital network that became the main power source" in people's lives during that era, and the new watch displays the phrase 'power source' in red when its backlight is activated.
