    According to Casio, it was a bit hit. Most probably a very early precursor of the ProTrek series.

    I'm pretty sure that the first G Shock with an Altimeter and a Barometer was the DW-6700. I think the release date was around 1994. I can't recall any G-Shock that has had a depth meter though.

    Here's a pic:

    Pete's right that no G has had depth meter.

    Pretty sure the first AB G-shock was the DW-6500 'Skyforce' released in feb '94 just six months before the DW-6700.

    DW-6500GJ-1A



    There are a couple vintage depth-meter divers that are realy nice...

    Good call on the 6500 Sherms. You are absolutely correct. I smiled when you showed the DEP divers...that's my pic. Here's one more of an almost complete DEP collection:
