Fast forward to 2069. What happens to the world then? Casio G-SHOCK has partnered with local contemporary artist, Jahan Loh to create an animated video that takes us to a future era of 2069 and how he would have perceived the state of the world.
Climate change has been the buzzword in recent years and come 2069, the world might be in dire straits should there be inadequate efforts by all to deal with the impending world crisis.
There is No Planet B
Coined “There is No Planet B”, this video is an extension of Jahan’s latest art series titled “Intergalactic Dreams” and it is a strong resonance to the adverse effects of climate change have on mankind. Jahan envisions that in the future, resources on planet earth can no longer sustain mankind and space reconnaissance troopers are dispatched to explore alternative suitable planets to inhabit.
In the video, the muse spaceman is on Planet M30 in the Sagittarius Dwarf Spherodical Galaxy- 70,000 light years from Planet Earth and he is seen trying to get back to his ship. On his wrist is the new metal-forged G-SHOCK GM 6900.
“The GM6900 is as tough as they come, and I see it being tough enough to withstand all intergalactic climates and terrain,” says Jahan.
The New Metal-Forged GM 6900
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the iconic G-SHOCK DW-6900-1V, which was first released in February 1995. To commemorate this special occasion, Casio has decided to add new members to the G-SHOCK family called the GM-6900 series and featuring all-new metal bezels.
