INTRODUCING: Casio DW-5600 Revival Colours
Bringing back Casio's original yellow, blue and green models.
While many watch brands have taken the vintage path in recent years, Casio, too, has embraced that road and struck a chord with fans all over. After all, many of us here in Asia grew up with the Japanese brand’s affordable, iconic battery-powered watches that saw us through school and, for many of our boys, National Service.
This year, Casio G-Shock revives its OG yellow, blue and green versions of the DW-5600 series. Introduced in 1987 for the yellow version and 1991 for the blue and green versions, these were the first coloured G-Shock watches to be sold outside of Japan.

Mimicking the originals, the new DW-5600R models in blue and green come with gold LCD, while the yellow version is also offered in a separate model, DWE-5600R, which comes with replacement bands and bezels.
Casio G-Shock DW-5600RB-3
Packaged in a special set, the yellow DWE-5600R resurrects the square-faced 5600 series with a Carbon Core Guard structure, and comes with replacement bands and bezels in black and red so you can switch up the look of your watch whenever you want to.

Features-wise, the models are all 200m water-resistant and come with a countdown timer, stopwatch, and Electro-Luminescent backlight afterglow. As bona fide G-Shocks, the DW-5600R and DWE-5600R models are naturally also shock-resistant and magnetic-resistant.
