Casio has just announced new transparent/translucent versions of their classic DW5600, GA700, and GA2100 models. Called Transparent White, the models have clear or smoky bezels and transparent bands, a big plus if you’re the Invisible Man.

As watches become more like sneakers, this sort of colorway experimentation is quite exciting and interesting. It definitely takes a bit longer to retool a watch line than a shoe line but I could see more unique efforts at creating clever designs and color combinations for a more discerning hypebeast audience.

Casio writes:

Each timepiece in the new Transparent Pack is built using semi-transparent resin parts, which offers a sleek and eye-catching update to the original models. In terms of design on the gray series, the GA2000SKE-8A features a tough Carbon Core Guard Case with a Super Illuminator Double LED light, while the GA900SKE-8A features a 7-year battery and the GA110SKE-8A magnetic resistance. All three models come equipped with digital-analog capabilities.

You can check them out here but they are, not surprisingly, out of stock.
