Casio G-Shock 35th Anniversary Collection

Casio G-Shock 35th Anniversary Collection

by Zen Love "Accuracy and durability are the reasons behind so many of the exotic techniques, material use, and "innovation" that enchant fans of horology and mechanical watches. But everyone knows that mechanical watches cannot even compete in those areas with Casio G-Shock's nearly indestructible quartz-and-plastic wonder watch that costs a fraction of the price to make. That is an achievement worth taking note of, and just like many high-end watchmakers, Casio can't resist the allure of an anniversary that is in some multiple of five. So, with 2018 marking the 35th anniversary of the first G-Shock born in 1983 naturally comes a collection of special edition watches with the Casio G-Shock 35th Anniversary collection."

I agree with one of those commenting about the reverse LCD display. They suck raw meat.

Ive got 3 G’s. The 5600, a little small. The 6900, a little big and lastly the Mudman military which fits beautifully but can’t be read.

This one is based on the model on the far right, but with an easier to read digital display. I wear this watch almost every night when I get home from work.

Negative displays just don't work very well. What is the point of a display you can't read?
