Non-Stop G-Shocks: DW-6900M-8T Eric Haze

Welcome to the end of the line. Not the complete end, mind you, but the end of the Non-Stop G-Shocks. Today I'm wearing my last G, a DW-6900M-8T from 1999. It was designed in collaboration with Eric Haze and bears his "tag" on the face and strap. You might not be familiar with his name, but you've probably seen album covers, posters, sneakers or other items designed by him, many of which are shown on his website. He also designed another G-Shock model released in 2006, the G-Shock 25th Anniversary logo and packaging and a not-yet-released Eric Haze Signature Model G-Shock. Today's watch does have some similarities to Haze's other G-Shocks, but it has a unique metallic silver finish. The finish looks good, but can wear off over time, although with the pampered life most of my watches lead, I'm not concerned. The watch also has a mirror-backed LCD (like the Ocean Grey 5600) which is a little difficult to take good photos of. Sjors did a good job here. I bought my DW-6900M-8T brand new pretty recently, but the EL backlight wasn't working. This is the watch for which this watch gave up it's functioning backlight. It seems lately that I've really grown fond of the 6900 design watches, so I can definitely see more of them in my future. If I get any more you'll be sure to see them here.

I have it, it's working and it still looks just like the photos. I'm not really looking to sell it, but everything has its price so feel free to email me an offer. Thanks!
