Casio G-Shock DW-5900 Watches

Renovation of the cult case with a digital display in the form of three round windows and the main electronic display. The series pays tribute to the past of the high-impact direction of G-Shock, which appreciated the old-school design and Japanese minimalism. Functional windows borrowed from the DW-6900 series – one of the best-selling cases among the G-Shock. They display the auxiliary functions of the clock – the state of the alarm, the sound of pressing buttons, an hourly beep, etc. The basic information is displayed in the large bottom window – there you can see the work of the stopwatch, timer, alarm, world time and calendar. In the dark, a display backlight is provided – bright and pleasing to the eye.
