GD-X6900HT in jersey style

Norderstedt, February 2015 – Throw your hoodie on – Grey hoodie, dark denim and white trainers: a street wear look that never goes out of fashion. Inspired by the rough, structured jersey materials of the ever-present hoody, G-SHOCK now presents three new, exciting versions of the GD-X6900HT.

The matt surface of the three new G-SHOCK models allows the textile look come into its own – they almost seem to be made of the beloved jersey material from the city’s streets. The three grey shades cover a wide range of style possibilities, whether tone-on-tone or in contrast to bright colours. But of course the legendary G-SHOCK shock resistance also protects the GD-X6900HT – despite its soft textile appearance. In light or mid grey or in darker anthracite, the GD-X6900HT is the ideal companion for an authentic street wear style.

The new Heather models are available in the following grey shades:
• GD-X6900HT-7ER
• GD-X6900HT-8ER
• GD-X6900HT-1ER

Other technical features of the GD-X6900HT include:
• Super auto LED light
• Tried-and-tested G-SHOCK shock resistance
• World time function
• Stopwatch function
• Digital calendar
• Alarm function
• Mineral crystal
• Resin case and wristband
• Ten-year battery life
• Water-resistant up to 20 bar

The GD-X6900HT models are now available from selected stores. A practical retailer search function is available at

G-SHOCK started with the idea and desire to create an indestructible watch. Engineers at CASIO followed the ‘triple 10’ concept which states that a watch should survive a fall from a height of 10 metres, withstand water pressure of 10 bar and should have a life span of 10 years on a single battery.

G-SHOCK has remained true to this concept and has been perfecting and continuously developing its G-SHOCK models since its launch in 1983.
