30 years after and thousands of new designs later, the GW-6900 and variations of the 6900 series still reign supreme in the number of sales among consumers. Because of all the interests Casio G-Shock decided to update this timeless classic for the brand’s 30th Anniversary. Officially unveiled at last night’s Casio G-Chock “Shock The World 2013” event in New York City, the new GD-X6900 isn’t just a larger version of the 6900, it is also considerably better with a complete re-design both inside and out. As a way to highlight the GD-X6900’s importance among the G-Shock product line, Casio collaborated with hip-hop artist EMINEM on a special edition, the EMINEM x Casio G-Shock GD-X6900MNM. Donned in a black on black color scheme, the GD-X6900MNM features EMINEM’s signature reverse “E” in red on the dial face along with a red skyline of downtown Detroit, EMINEM’s hometown, on the band. Like all other special G-Shocks, Casio created a matte black caseback for watch with a “Shady” autograph etched on.
One of the more limited releases of this year, EMINEM x Casio G-Shock GD-X6900MNM Watch will be available through select retailers worldwide starting in December 2013.
Release Date: December 2013
