Casio G-Shock DW-5000SL Spike Lee

I wore this one Monday but didn't get around to posting it until today. This is my newest watch, a Casio G-Shock DW-5000SL. The "SL" is for Spike Lee and this is his "signature" watch. It is the latest watch to commemorate G-Shock's 25th anniversary. You can see it is very similar to the 20th Anniversary DW-5000SP and the 25th Anniversary DW-5025SP-1JF. This Spike Lee differs from those as it has "Water Resist 20 Bar" on the dial instead of "Project Team Tough", has the "40 Acres and a Mule" logo in the backlight (Spike Lee's production company) and has Spike Lee's signature engraved on the screw-down caseback. It also came in a unique package, with a red, black and green tin with the logo and a box with maps of Brooklyn. I'm a fan of Spike Lee's films for the most part (and a huge fan of Do The Right Thing) and I'm glad to have this watch. I'm not sure how limited it will be (if at all) but considering the very similar DW-5025SP-1JF is very limited and very expensive (easily $400 or more) I'd encourange anybody who likes this classic G-Shock model to pick one up, even if they're not big fans of Spike Lee.

Hi..The background of the LCD is gold in colour or silver???thanks..

It's the standard grey/silver LCD background. Look at any of the Dawn Black or Glorious Gold watches for an example of the gold LCD.
