Excerpt from Streething (http://www.streething.com/archives/25678):
Apart from showcasing upcoming G-Shock collections and performances from local artists Arabyrd and Joe Flizzow, the event highlights will include the unveiling of local collaboration watches as well as a special appearance by Mr. Kikuo Ibe – founder of the G-Shock division.
The collab series will sport a version of the DW-5600 by Streething, a DW-6900 by local designer Stephen Lau and an exclusive ‘Shock The World Tour’ Kuala Lumpur edition.

The G6900-GR3 is part of the new Casio G-shock Green Series collection. I don’t know how ‘limited’ it is, but I do think it is ‘limited edition’. You still can get it at watch shops, or at Sungei Wang as off now. Going price will be around RM300 ~ RM320, do not get ripped off!!
The green color used here is exactly same as the Frogman Love The Sea and Earth (model #GW-200F-3JR, note ‘3’, denominating the green color) edition, popularly dubbed the ‘Kermit‘ by many G-shock enthusiasts.
The GW-200Z is the final edition in the GW-200 series, thus being coined the nickname “The Final Frogman“. Caged in a titanium housing, it is anti-rust and is 200 meters water resistant.
Just got this in recently. The watch shops in Malaysia, both the official Marco and unofficial distributors are stocking them, so hurry and get yours before they all run out. Shops in Sungei Wang received from 3 – 5 units each, not sure if they can order more, so quickly get them while they are still on display.
Casio America, Inc. proudly unveils the Limited Edition Go Green Project, an environmentally friendly series of G-Shock watch models to commemorate Earth Day’s 40th Anniversary. The series is compromised of three new G-Shock styles G5600GR-7, G6900GR-3 and G2300GR-3 with 100% recycled paper packaging, advanced solar technology and Earth Day inspired color ways.
Each incarnation of the Go Green Project features advanced Self-Charging, Tough Solar Power technology – A tiny, solar panel combined with a large-capacity rechargeable battery enables a variety of energy-hungry functions to operate smoothly. The result is an impressive solar timepiece that assures reliable timekeeping and greatly reduces the need for battery change. With its durable construction and unmatched solar power function, the Go Green Project provides an accessory that embraces the philosophy of reduce, re-use recycle.
The DW6900MS-1 is a stealth DW6900 model with a the words and the EL button on the case in black (or in other words, not inked/printed). This was released as part of the “Military Inspired” series. Other models in the series are the Frogman GW200MS, Mudman G9000MS and the classic DW5600MS (which I will be acquiring real soon).
