Casio is bringing back its first analog/digital G-SHOCK watch for the Fall season. Named the AW-500, the watch design was first seen in 1989 and was known for having both a traditional analog display with a dial and hands, and a rectangular LED digital display.

The reintroduction will see both a more affordable resin version and a premium stainless model. Both versions will offer the same G-SHOCK-standard of impact protection with 200 meters of water resistance. Functions include a stopwatch, alarm, backlight afterglow, dual time, Neobrite luminous hands, and calendar. The metal version sees a few more elevated details like solar charging and radio rave reception.

Sized at a hefty 47.7 mm in case size, the resin version weighs 58 grams while the stainless steel version comes in at 175 grams. Those interested in purchasing one of these re-editions can head over to CASIO where the G-SHOCK retails for ¥13,000 JPY and ¥60,000 JPY (approximately $125 USD and $570 USD) for the resin or stainless steel versions, respectively.

In other watch news, New Era reunites with G-SHOCK to celebrate its 100th anniversary.
