Casio Releases 30th Anniversary G-Shock Watch the G-Shock DW-5000C

A back to back Casio posting here on the blog!
 
It seems my infatuation with Casio's G-Shock line of watches has carried over into a second post in as many days.
 
While perusing the 'net, I found that Casio is currently getting ready to celebrate the birthday of the G-Shock… the 30th birthday to be precise (man does that make *me* feel old).
 
While one of the things I love about these watches is their price tag (which isn't cheap, but isn't expensive either), this one definitely breaks that rule.  Most G-Shock watches are sub $300 and many are just a bit over $100.
 
However, this one will be retailing for $900.  That's because instead of a resin casing, this bad boy has a stainless shell body & band.  This increases the weight from the usual 2.8 oz to 6.6 oz, but it also provides a styling that lets you wear the one with a suit.  Pretty cool if you ask me.
 
It's also solar & sets with the atomic signal (like the one I blogged about yesterday that is currently on my wrist).
 
Want all the details on this one plus its siblings that will be available this fall for the 30th anniversary?
