Casio Men's AWG100-1A G-Shock Multi-Band Solar Atomic Analog Watch
Personally, I like the analogue dial models AWG-M100's and Sky Cockpit GW-4000 G-Shocks. But don't ask me to pick between the various face colours, I think that they all look great.
I know the DW-6900 models have a whole legion of their own fans and the new Metallic Dial series will definitely be popular with the G Shock 6900 devotees.

Casio Develops New G-SHOCK That Communicates with Smart Phones
In March this year Casio announced that it has developed a next-generation watch with Bluetooth® Low Energy Wireless Technology for its G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches.
Designed in accordance with new Bluetooth® Core Specification Version 4.0 standards, Bluetooth® Low Energy is a new technology that enables wireless communications with very low power consumption. Casio participated in determining the standards for
Bluetooth® Low Energy as a member of the Bluetooth® Special Interest Group (SIG), an association of companies that decides on Bluetooth® standards and authorizes certification.
Casio’s new G-SHOCK watch is the first in a line of new watches that will use Bluetooth® Low Energy Wireless Technology, with a function that can adjust time automatically all over the world. Casio is positioning these watches as next-generation wristwatches.
The watch supports communication with Bluetooth® Low Energy smart phones to enable automatic synchronization with smart phone time. Smart phones automatically acquire the local time when moving between countries and regions in different time zones, which
means that the synchronized watch will adjust to the time in its present location automatically.

March was abig month for Casio announcements also released were several new SHEEN metal watches for women. The new SHE-5514 models feature a glittering dial that evokes a beautiful night sky complete with the Milky Way and shooting stars.
The SHEEN line of metal watches offer a gorgeous look for smart and elegant women. The distinctive face designs and the movement of the hands have made these watches especially popular with younger ladies.
The new SHE-5514 watches feature a dual-layer dial. The upper level of the dial is boldly cut by flowing lines, exposing a lower dial studded with large and small stars. This creates the impression of the Milky Way, glittering in the night sky.
This is not good news for Casio Watches, it has been revealed that the Casio F-91W digital watch is favoured by Al-Qaida explosives specialists. It is believed to be given to students at Al Quaida bomb making schools and used to train in in timing devices. Up to one third of the Guantanamo detainees who had these watches were known to be associated with a location where IEDs were prepared in Afghanistan.
My advice, avoid the Casio F-91W and buy a Pathfinder
