An extension of Loh’s “Intergalactic Dreams,” his body of work that encourages conversation about global warming, “There is No Planet B” is set in the year 2069 (a nod to the GM-6900), and tells of a possible future where Earth is soon becoming uninhabitable, and space reconnaissance troopers are sent out scouting planet after planet for mankind’s new home.
In the video, a spaceman is 70,000 light years from Earth. Now on Planet M30 in the Sagittarius Dwarf Spherodical Galaxy, he runs to return to his ship, and on his wrist is the new metal-forged G-SHOCK GM-6900: featuring a gold-colored metal bezel, digital face and metal buckle. It also comes paired with a resin strap, and is shock and 20 BAR water resistant (approx. 200m in depth).
Year of first release: 2020
Nominations: best design, best price, best classic
The most distinctive specs:
– 200-meter water resistance (good for swimming but not for deep diving)
– Metal-Covered (Minute protrusions on the outside of the inner case reduce surface contact with the metal bezel)
– Glass Fiber Reinforced Case (Glass fibers are incorporated into resin for increased strength. The material’s resistance to shock-induced breakage and bending protects the module from external shock)
– Triple Graph Display (characterized by three round digital indicators on the dial)
Average Amazon Price: $150 (yes, we may earn a commission on qualifying purchases from our links to Amazon)
