In 1998, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) staged it’s 16th World Cup tournament in France.
As it had done with the previous World Cup (USA 94), Casio released a series of G-Shocks to commemorate the occasion. One model is the DW-6900WF-7T, a jelly clear edition.
The EL backlight of this model featured the mascot for the tournament named Footix who is a cockerel, one of the national symbols of France.
The final was played between Brazil and host nation France who emerged champions with a score of 3 goals to nil. It was the first ever World Cup title for France and remains the only to date.
