Casio just announced a new NASA-themed G-Shock that should enthuse the space lovers in your life. Priced at a super-reasonable $130, the watches feature NASA spacesuit white, a large NASA logo, and an engraved caseback.

From the release:

The DW6900NASA237 comes to life through the classic and timeless design of the rounded DW6900, which was first introduced in 1995 and has gone on to become a cultural icon with era-spanning popularity. In celebration of its 40th anniversary, G-SHOCK unites fans of both brands and pays homage to a beloved and influential style, inviting enthusiasts to come together and revel in the distinctive aura of this new timepiece.

Sporting a crisp, matte white finish, the DW6900NASA237 features a full resin case, bezel, and band, making for a minimalistic yet bold look on the wrist. To further commemorate the brand, the timepiece displays the NASA logo on the lower band and “National Aeronautics and Space Administration” on the upper band. Additionally, an American flag can be found on the band loop and a depiction of the Earth is engraved on the case back, as well as appearing in the watch face when the EL backlight is activated. Lastly, as with many limited-edition models, the watch comes in special packaging that features an outer box with the moon set against a semi-matte black background and an inner tin of black and white, emblazoned with the American flag and the brand’s logo.  

Here’s the bad news: the watch is currently sold out and was available briefly as part of a contest on Casio’s site. This means you probably won’t be able to grab one of these beauties any time soon or at least until Casio decides to start selling them again. Honestly, it’s a lovely piece and looks striking with the bold Earth pattern on the crystal that appears when the watch backlight activates. Here’s hoping they open the contest or order page up again.
