Casio G-Shock Celebrates Turning 30 With a Limited Edition Timepiece

G-Shock, the popular hip hop sensation watch, has turned 30.  To commemorate this event G-shock has unveiled its highly resilient and shock absorbent  DW-6900 model in metallic.
Often Commemorative timepieces celebrating the highly popular collections are unveiled in platinum like Audemars Piguet timepiece celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Royal Oak Collection.

So I think it is quite relevant for the G-shock, which is not a high end watch, to issue commemorative timepieces in Lustrous Metallic Silver - not platinum in worth, but celebratory non-the-less. The watch will be in limited edition of a mere 5000 pieces.  This may sound like quite a large amount for an anniversary limited edition - but due to Casio G-Shock immense popularity, 5000 pieces is a drop in the ocean.  Of course if you are in attendance at BaselWorld, you will come upon its 23 foot likeness entrenched in the rugged metallic wall of Casio's booth.

The Casio G-Shock has been spotted on quite a few celebs such as Eminem, Chris Martin from Coldplay, Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne.  

Casio G-Shock's are everywhere.  With proven resilience and shock absorbance, Casio G-Shock has provided the look of the modern hip-hop generation. 

This collection has been subjected to all kinds of mutations like this iced out pink thing.  Not my cup of tea - but then again with a certain outfit - it could work.

Let us toast to Casio G-Shock's prolific accomplishments over the past 30 thirty years.
