Casio Malaysia officially announced a special collaboration model with Paradise Youth Club’s fashion brand. That is the first collaboration between Casio and Paradise Youth Club in releasing the G-SHOCK DW-6900PYU21 limited edition. The DW-6900 was released in 1995 and was the first G-SHOCK watch with an EL backlight. The ability of the backlight to display text or a symbol became a popular feature. In addition, the series won fans as the “Triple Graph” model and remains as popular today. The watch is shock resistant and has a 200-meter water resistance in terms of technical specifications.
Inspired by the Power Source, the PYC’s latest fall/winter collection explores the digital grid, which has become a significant energy source in people’s lives from the beginning to the present day. In essence, we are puppets for the so-called master: the Internet. Thus, the design chosen for this collaboration took a futuristic approach with its silver stripe.
The Paradise Youth Club DW-6900PYU21 is based on the DW-6900 Series. The DW-6900 was a personal touch of the PYC founder as it was associated with their first G-Shock memories. The watch radiates futuristic elements by using a silver-colored bezel and strap. The light green dial and large button on the front serve as a lovely accent. A “Power Source”” inscription appears when the backlight is turned on. The phrase “Guide to Paradise Highway” is engraved on the back of the watch.
