This photo was made by my friend Trase Uno, who has the same moel G-Shock too. Photo placed with permission.The Golden Week starts on April 29 and ends on May 5th. On May 4th Japan celebrates “Greenery Day”. Originally Greenery Day was on April 29, the birthday of the former emperor Shōwa. Emperor Shōwa was a Marine Biologist and he loved plants. Since emperor Shōwa was controversial, the day of the his birthday is first named after his hobby so his name was not mentioned. Since 2007 April 29 is called Shōwa Day and Greenery Day is moved to May 4th. Greenery Day has about the same message as Earth Day. It is a day to commune with nature and receive it’s blessings.
Your author working late hours to finish this article.I have been wanting to write an article about this “Green Colors” collection model for some time and parts have been in my head since I returned from Japan, just before New Year. The name of this series is somewhat vague, as the box of these models says “Green Collection”, while Casio Japan refers to as the "Green Colors" models. In the USA they were introduced as “Go Green Project” series, though the box is the same as on the Japanese market.
This video was also made by Trase One. The best unboxing video I know around.This series is released for the first time in January 2010, to commemorate “Earth Day”, which is on April 22nd. The series was also released in the US one month later.
I think this is the first G-6900 model, but probably not the last, as I pretty much like this model. So, let’s see what’s under the hood of this very nice model. Besides the Timekeeping Mode, the G-6900 (Module 3180) has also 4 other function.
