Official Casio Description. For almost 3 decades, G-Shock has been a world standard for tough watches. And with the introduction of the new large case digital, G8900, the world has another sure thing to wear on its wrist. The large case digital is highlighted by a high-intensity LED backlight which can be activated by the flick of the wrist or easy-press front button. An aluminum bezel provides a first line of defense to its omni-directional shock resistant structure and the semi-round case bridges the gap between the legendary 5600 and 6900 case styles. Gloss black resin band digital watch with a blue face.
Casio G-8900 on the wrist!
