I have been looking for one of these for some time. It is part of one of the true classic series of G shocks. Here are some pictures.
Yes it is the AW-594-1E1.
This was one of a series of G shocks Casio issued to celebrate the 1994 World Cup in the USA. This was a Japan only model and because Japan didn't qualify did not sell too well.
They are based on the original AW-500 with the 380 module.
This model has always been my favourite amongst the AW-5** series due to its World Cup connection and its stealthy subtle look. I now have at least one of the 'G's Casio issued at the 1994, 1998 and 2006 World Cups.
The strap is not so subtle!
I find the design of the hands to be particlarly attractive.
It is a screwback model.
As you can see this watch appears to be unworn and still has the sticker on the back.
Having said that there is crack in the bezel. I don't know how this was caused but I doubt it is resin rot as the rest of the bezel and strap are perfect and the resin is soft and supple. I suspect someone split it whilst changing the battery, as the bezels on these are known to be relatively fragile. The damage is only cosmetic and is unlikely to get worse as the bezel is screwed to the case at the lugs and cannot flex.
Here are some wrist shots.
As you can see the face has an asymetric design and that means that the hands never cover the digital panel a nice design touch.
The watch has calendar, stopwatch, dual time, and alarm modes. The analog hands are set directly from the top button.
The watch still has some lume left even after sixteen years.
What did surprise me about the watch is its size. It is larger than I expected.
It is 49mm wide and 51mm to the lugs. It is relatively slim for a screwback being 14mm thick.
Here is a comparison shot.
I am really pleased with this G shock. The AW-500 series is a true classic one in my opinion and I am surprised we don't see more of them on the forum.
