Introducing the Casio G-Shock DW5900 NASA Limited Edition. Prepare to blast off into style with this out-of-this-world timepiece. Casio’s G-Shock has taken inspiration from NASA once again, creating a watch that is truly stellar. The DW5900 has been given the NASA treatment, with its stunning white case and band. But that’s not all – the bottom strap proudly displays the iconic “NASA” logo, while the strap holder features a design of stars and stripes. And when the backlight on this watch glows, a mesmerizing image of the Moon is revealed.
What We Know
Casio’s G-Shock has a history of collaborating with NASA, and this new release stays true to the aesthetic of its predecessor, the NASA DW5600. The crisp white case and band, along with the “worm” NASA logo, make this watch a stylish tribute to the space program. The watch is a limited edition, although Casio has not disclosed how many will be produced. If you’re interested in getting your hands on one, you’ll have to enter a contest on Casio’s website. The entry period closes on July 16, and winners will be notified the following day.
What We Think
The NASA logo has become a ubiquitous symbol in popular culture, with various brands using it for their products. However, the combination of G-Shock’s technical expertise and NASA’s iconic logo feels like a match made in heaven. The use of the NASA logo comes with guidelines, such as being displayed against a solid background and without suggesting a collaboration. This explains the all-white design of the G-Shock watch, with the Casio and G-Shock branding kept subtle. G-Shock stands out among other brands that have embraced the NASA logo, as it perfectly captures the spirit of the space program.
The demand for NASA-themed products has skyrocketed in recent years, with companies eager to incorporate the nostalgic logo into their designs. In fact, NASA receives an average of 225 logo requests per week, a significant increase from the previous five to ten requests. The license-free usage of the logo has made it a popular choice, leading to its appearance on a wide range of products. G-Shock’s collaboration with NASA feels like a natural fit, combining the technical prowess of the watch brand with the allure of outer space.
As with any sought-after watch, there is always the challenge of availability. Previous releases of NASA-inspired G-Shock watches have faced issues with customer orders being canceled. To manage the potential demand, this limited edition release employs a contest system. By entering the contest, customers have a chance to purchase the watch. Let’s hope that this strategy keeps the opportunistic bots at bay and ensures a fair chance for watch enthusiasts to add this stunning timepiece to their collection.
