G-SHOCK is keeping its 35th anniversary celebration going with a new military-inspired series based on the iconic DW6900. Featuring its classic round-case silhouette, and “three-eyes” face, the DW6900LU sports matte, subdued coloring throughout, with bi-color resin bands adding an unexpected design flourish to the straightforward design. The individual styles take the form of the DW6900LU-1, featuring a black exterior and khaki inner band; the DW6900LU-8 in slate grey with a blue inner band; and the DW6900LU-3, combining an olive green finish with contrasting orange on the inner band.
It makes sense for G-SHOCK to issue this new DW6900 series, as the popular heritage silhouette is regularly worn by those who prize durability and timeless style. The model debuted in the mid-‘90s, effectively replacing the DW6600, while keeping the same resin bezel and five-button functionality of its predecessor. It’s water resistant to 200 meters and features a countdown timer, 1/100 second stopwatch, multi-function alarm and Illuminator EL Backlight.
