    Garish 6900 unboxing (pic heavy!)

    Pretty excited about today's package from Japan, so thought I'd share the excitement with some pics . First off, this is my first 6900. I made the mistake of trying one on in Macy's a couple of weeks ago (a 6900, not a Garish), so I guess it was only a matter of time .

    Impressions: If the 6900 is a good indication of the Garish series as a whole, I'd say Casio succeeded in creating an exceptionally high contrast aesthetic between saturated black, pure white, and silver/mirrored. With that being said, the 6900 is probably the most understated of the bunch, which works out since I didn't want a very 'loud' 6900 as my first. The matte black resin backdrop, which seems a shade darker than that found on other black G's,is accentuated by black IP buttons & clasp, and it looks like the indented text which isn't white (the button labels) may even be painted black to maximize the effect. The only white paint on the case, which is very vibrant, is the 'G-SHOCK' label at top and the 'G' on the center light button. Both the LCD and face plate are mirrored, but the EL light is reversed. All of the mirroring makes it a little more difficult to focus on than a traditional positive display, but it's still considerably better than any reverse display, and frankly, it looks awesome . Overall, it's a sharp looking basic G which, while not without flair, avoids appearing as gaudy as it might have given the series' theme.

    Enjoy!

    I know it looks like it, but these next couple are not enhanced. It actually looks that dark the arm (granted my arm is pretty white )

    Whoa!
    That looks awesome, congrats! I always thought that I "should have" a 6900, so I'll have to look at that model closer.
    Cheers!

    Very nice indeed. How big is the garish release? Almost feels like a "full line"! Great pick.
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.
