Casio G-Shock Nasa Figured Astronaut Wristwatch
The Casio G-Shock NASA Watch (model number DW5600NASA20) casts the whole square case, bezel, and band in a stark white color, complete with all the engraved sections, so you get the complete opposite of a blacked out timepiece. You know, a whited-out watch or whatever cooler name you can come up with. The buttons, however, remain in their usual gray colors, probably to make them easily identifiable, as well as the function labels, so you don’t strain your eyes trying to read white letters on a white background, which is downright impossible.
It gets the NASA logo in bright red at the top of the watch face, along with the full name of NASA on the lower part of the band in black lettering. The Casio G-Shock NASA Watch has all the functions available in modern versions of the DW-5600. That means, it’s durable enough to withstand all earthly dangers, including shock, impact, and water, although it’s not actually rated for space, so don’t bother putting it on, if ever you’re kidnapped by aliens and brought to the outer fringes of the planet for the customary anal probe. Yeah, aliens aren’t very nice. This cool stuff has EL backlighting for checking out the time in the dark, along with a basic LCD display that you’ve seen on Casio’s timepieces countless numbers of times.
Time functions include all the usual suspects, from standard timekeeping and a full stopwatch to alarms and 12/24 hour format. It also has a full calendar up to 2099, so you can pretend to plan your next trip to the space station, as well as the exact date you will go on a spacewalk. It doesn’t seem to have the more advanced auto-adjustment capabilities of modern cool thing G-Shocks, which, we don’t mind, since this is all about looking like an astronaut and it definitely does the job.
