5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the color scheme, and the Metallic face. Not to mention, it's a G-shock., March 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio DW-6900CB-4 G-Shock Watch Red orange (Watch)
I was drawn to this watch due to two main reasons:
1) It is waterproof and rated to dive and swim in regularly.
2) The red/orange color scheme.

I did buy this not just as a fashion deal, but also mainly as a swim/dive watch, which it seems well enough at so far, as long as you wipe the band dry afterward, or it will crack, especially with chlorinated water. It is a digital-only design, with the seconds monitored above the time, which will take some time to get used to reading, but it helps as a unique chronometer, should you have to count seconds for something (I have used it in a laboratory for an experiment), but I could see it coming in handy for nurses who must take blood pressure.

You may not be able to tell, but the face is metallic gun-metal gray, and looks great with the red/orange. I made a pair of NikeiD shoes with the same color scheme, and found a watch to match it, but with all of the other setups G-Shock offers, you can definitely find one for you.

It looks a little old-fashioned, early 90's or so, but it keeps from looking out-dated somehow, and if you like the pictures of it on here, then you will love the way it looks in your hand.

Does it have more than one time zone? I use that function when I travel and I wanna know what is the time at home and the time in the new country with a press of a button.

no it does not have time zones if you want TZ then you'll need to go for one like the olive green G it has solar as well.
