Casio G-Shock Glacier Gold 35th Anniversary Edition

Post by Racer-X » September 25th 2018, 10:20pm

"In 1983, CASIO introduced the G-Shock: a game changing timepiece that redefined toughness of a watch. Its first iteration – the DW-5000C, paved the way for an entirely new segment of tough, shockproof watches – one that G-Shocks continues to dominate today. 2018 marks the 35th anniversary of G-Shocks. CASIO is celebrating this milestone with the release of the GLACIER GOLD collection of four G-Shock models with glacier-inspired transparent designs.

The new DW-5035E, DW-5735E, GA-735E, and GA-835E watches combine G-SHOCK toughness with an overall look that evokes the appearance of glaciers in a land of extreme cold, with clear semi-transparent bezels and bands. The innovative use of transparent resin gained attention with the DW-6900K model that was released in 1996 to commemorate the G-SHOCK Dolphin & Whale models, making a lasting mark on the G-SHOCK lineage. The dials, buckles, buttons, screws, and case backs are finished with a brilliant gold color to commemorate their status as 35th anniversary models."

Normally, I'd go all asshole over watch companies that make a big deal over some anniversary. But, not this time. Casio Gees are so profoundly cool that only the meanest dick would go nuclear over them pounding their chests a little.

Gees have proven themselves all over the world, in the worst places in the world, for decades. Are they a tiny bit ghey? No, because they're fucking Gees.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Before I became serious about this watch habit, I pretty much wore Casios and graduated to G’s. If you look at the features that modern G’s have, they are a pretty remarkable invention. I know a few guys who collect only G-Shocks and their collections are astounding. Even though I probably won’t buy a 35th anniversary model, I say Happy Birthday and well done, Kikuo Ibe.

I don't mind G-Shocks, I'm sure they're among the epitomes of reliability and durability. However, this "anniversary edition" is shockingly ghey.
