The DW-6600 was launched in 1994 and was the first G-Shock watch equipped with the EL backlight that illuminates the background of the LCD display with a blue-green hue for easy viewing in the dark. It was discontinued in 2010 but revived in 2023 for the G-Shock 40th Anniversary. The new DW-6600 has a white LED backlight and improved battery life of approximately 5 years, and it shares the same functions as the current DW-6900. Along with its iconic case shape that was adopted by the DW-6900, the DW-6600 is notable for having been used by Navy SEALs.
