A fan favorite of ‘80s babies and true watch collectors alike, Casios G-Shock brand is 25 years strong. In honor of their 25th birthday Casio will be releasing a bunch of collabo watches as well as several limited-edition. The good folks at LRG have already dropped their take on the classic G.

My personal favorite G has to be the limited-edition gray skeleton (seen above). The design and technology is adapted from the original G-Shock which has set standards with its ruggedness and shock resistance, but features a see through light gray band and bezel. A 25th anniversary logo is engraved on the case back marking its uniqueness.

For those of you interested in a little history:

In 1983, a Casio engineer designed a watch that would withstand a fall from atop a three-story building, creating the worlds toughest watch. Using a triple-protection design for the parts, module, and case, the G-Shock offered a radical new type of watch that was virtually shock proof. Its unique look and practicality was immediately recognized, making the G-Shock wildly popular.

The gray skeleton is the second watch being released from the 25th Anniversary G-Shock watch series. The watch is water resistant up to 200M and features a multi-function alarm, EL backlight, 1/100-second stopwatch and a countdown timer.

The limited edition 25th Anniversary G-Shock Skeleton is available nationwide and online for $130.

In addition to the gray skeleton, Casio also introduced the Vivid Colors series (seen below) earlier this year. Available in red, green and white, the Vivid Colors series is available nationwide and online for $120.
