Tom Cruise wears a similar DW-6900-1V in
the movie Mission Impossible 2. There is a scene where he descends from a
helicopter in s sort of chimney. At the bottom of the structure he starts
the timer of his G-Shock. Someone called this type of G-Shock once a three
eyed devil. Along with the DW-6600 this watch is still a very popular watch
by American firemen and policemen and therefore it can be considered to be a
classic. I also got the
basic model in gold tone.
Well, the special effects guys have done
their job well. Not did they get rid of the G-Shock lettering on the case
and G-Button, they also changed the module. This supposed to be the timer.
They didn't change everything. The inner case lettering is still intact, and
the word "ILLUMINATOR" is of course a trademark of Casio!
And what's that. A DW-6900 with a
Transponder tracking device (what ever that may be).
