Not that we’d want an important day to don a sq., however Casio has simply introduced a restricted version G-Shock DW5600 that commemorates the fortieth anniversary of the primary Space Shuttle launch.
“The new limited-edition timepiece is available in a black and white case and band mixture to deliver forth the aesthetic of the OV-102 area shuttle. Design parts embody a minimalist white dial with pink NASA brand, chrome steel case again with an engraved silhouette of the shuttle, an American flag printed on the band loop and black ion-plated buckle. This timepiece arrives in customized packaging with an outer field which displays STS-1 Mission statistics and an internal tin that depicts the mission’s 2-day orbit across the earth.”
Mostly, we like this new restricted version, and undoubtedly dig the two-tone design in addition to the shuttle on the again of the case. Victor did level out, nevertheless, proper earlier than we recorded this week’s episode of The HourTime Show, that the white across the LED is a bit of on the barren facet, and maybe may have used… one thing to liven it up. The shuttle that pops up when activating the illumination can also be one thing we’d should get used to.
This is the second G-Shock that’s caught our consideration in latest days.
Casio has simply began promoting “Casioaks” which are about two millimeters smaller than the one we checked out earlier this 12 months for a retail value of $99. Given how shortly the unique Casioak bought out, it’s best to most likely act shortly if any of those new colours enchantment to you. They’re marketed towards girls, however for those who’re somebody like me who has a barely thinner wrist you then would possibly choose these to the OG ones.
The restricted version G-Shock DW5600 will retail for $140 and will likely be accessible for pre-order on April 12 at gshock.com. It’ll be accessible for buy at choose retailers, together with the G-Shock retailer in Soho in NYC, later this month.
