In4mation x G-Shock G-Lide GLX-5600X-3

This bright turquoise G-Shock was released in 2008 as a collaboration between Casio and In4mation, a Hawaii-based clothing and design company. This model contains the 3151 module with a distinctive tide graph and moon phase display at the top of the LCD.

This limited edition comes in a special gift box. The In4mation logo is plastered across the lid and the slogan "Purveyors of the Good Life" is printed across the bottom.

The band and bezel are extremely glossy and it can look very different depending on the lighting. The light colored area around the LCD is also quite reflective, but the display itself is always sharp and easy to read.

The case back is stainless steel and is stamped with a large In4mation logo in the center. The case back design is one of the most aesthetically pleasing ones that's not a screwback. It feels very much like a classic DW-5600 on the wrist. Light and slim.
