    DW-6600 with a Red G Backlight

    I have just acquired a second 6600 after the first wasn't water tight.


    Anyway, it arrived this morning from the USA (posted on Monday) and I noticed it has a red G when you press the backlight - is this a special edition of just a variant?? If so is it rare or common??

    My other 6600 didnot have the red G and the official G-Shock website does not appear to have them for sale.

    Any ideas
    Cheers

    I have two DW-6600's. One was purchased years ago at Walmart. The other was purchased last week from Amazon. Both of them have the red G in the back light.

    I had one that didn't have the G in the backlight and I've seen this on sale as well. So I figure there are 2 variants to this model, with and without a backlight G.

    I believe the model number for the regular version is DW 6600-1V. The red G version is DW 6600C-1. For what it's worth, HB Watches, a reputable dealer, has both versions, but the red G like yours is 30% more expensive. I think you did well. Enjoy the watch.

    Peekaboo has a DW-6695 for sale (https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=128585) that has a red "K" in the backlight. If you're looking for a DW-6600 with a little more character.

    Yes, that one from Peekaboo is cool. It's part of a series that used the entire English alphabet. I'd love to find the "C", "M", and "Z" models for family members.
