Casio GW6900-1 Review

Casio GW6900-1Do you want to start a following? Do you want to be a star? Then get the biggest star of this universe in your time piece. Casio GW6900-1 Men’s Tough “G-Shock” is a solar watch that gets its power direct from the sun.

This atomic model is based on the original DW6900 model, G-Shock’s best-selling case design. With this model, a Solar Atomic Timekeeping system was employed without changing the basic design of the watch. This makes it possible to generate power to keep the watch running with extreme accuracy and minimal exposure to normal lighting.

Japanese Quartz “Movement”

Japanese quartz movement is a type of self-winding watch movement developed in Japan which uses a quartz crystal to keep time. These watches do not have the environmental impact that battery-operated watches do. But what makes this watch even more special is the endless battery to support the accurate movement. Solar powered feature has been the hot favorite among G-shock lovers.

Do or “Dial”

At the first look, the dial looks round but in the next split second, it will make you realize that the circle is not completed. With a streamlined design and sleek styling, the Casio Men’s G-Shock Atomic Digital Watch features performance functions and durable components that meet the lifestyle needs of the modern man.

This innovative Casio timepiece offers World Time with 31 time zones, stopwatch, countdown timer, five alarms, stopwatch, 12- and 24-hour formats, and the handy capacity to automatically receive official atomic time through a built-in antenna.

Three circular sub dials give you all the information you need, and a rectangular display in the bottom half of the black dial offers the time and day, date, and month information.

A handy EL backlight makes for easy viewing in any light conditions and turns on automatically with the tilt of your wrist. With solar power for added convenience and a water resistant depth of 660 feet (200 meters), this rugged and reliable timepiece is also shock resistant.

Black “Band”

The strong and flexible black resin band fastens with an adjustable buckle and is superbly comfortable. Resin is known for its strength and long lasting life. This watch being tough had to be coupled up with something sturdy and resin does the needful!
