    Casio G-Shock and Normal From '80s

    Hello guys, a very simple question: is still on sale any G-Shock or normal Casio which production started in the 1980? I would like to buy them!

    What model? Some of watch models back then still have modernized versions in production today. But if you want actual 1980s models, it all depends on luck and how collectable they are.

    The very first G came out in 1983 was the DW5000. It was re-produced in recent years in limited quantity. It's a collectable item that cost couple hundred dollars. The DW5500 which came out in 1985 still have modern versions in production, you can have for a hundred bucks or so. The DW5600 which was based on the original G and first came out in 1987. It's still widely available for its modernized versions. You can get that easily and cheaply, around ~$40 bucks.

    As for regular Casio, too damn many models, you need to be more specific if you want those.

    There are a couple of models that have been going since the 90s like the DW-6900 but the module has changed over that time.

    I think the current model with the longest unbroken run with the same module is the G-100 from 2000.

    This model doesn't get much of a mention on here, which is a bit surprising since it must sell well for Casio to keep making it. It isn't the greatest G out there to be honest though one of the weakest in fact imo.

    As others have mentioned/asked, it might help if you explain WHY you're looking for old models -- none of the oldest, pre-1990's G-Shocks are still in production. Some collectors pay premium prices to have an old, outdated piece of memorabilia to put on a shelf, but if you're going to actually WEAR the watch you'll probably want the easier-to-read electroluminescent backlight rather than the old, dim LED lights they used to use.

    As watch_geek2014 and Mitch100 said, the DW-5600E is the modern version of the original DW-5600C, and the DW-6900 is still virtually the same as when it was first released in 1995. (The only update to the module is that the calendar now goes until the year 2099; the older version's calendar stopped at the year 2039.)

    You might find this site useful: List of Every G-Shock Model - G-Shock Wiki | casio watch resources -- start at the beginning and search eBay (and similar sites) for each model number to see if anybody has any "new old stock" for sale.

    I think the longest running model without change is F-91W. It is in production since 1991 and still available.

    I personally ban the F-91W, because it's actually a terrorist watch!

    Does that certain watch model walk on the streets and terrorize people? Or is it just cheap and accurate so that it is desired model among all kind of people.
    There's a watch in my pocket and it's hands are broken, the face is blank but the gears are turnin'.
