Casio are preparing for quite the anniversary. April 13th 2012 will mark the 30th birthday of the brand’s popular chunky G-Shock wristwatch line.

To mark the occasion, Casio are to release three fire-red limited edition watches. The sturdy Mudman G-9330A, Frogman GF-8230A and DW-6930A have all been given a devilish makeover, a bold look for a bold brand that’s consistently pushed watch design to its limits.

Etched with the special 30th Anniversary logo designed by Eric Haze and finished with gold tint, they’ll land in a special commemorative tin sometime around September.

More than anything, it’s hard to believe the G-Shock brand is now nearly 30 years old, and how the classic look is stills stylish. Just take a look at the first ever G-Shock model pictured below, the DW-5000C-1A. Despite launching in April 1983, the G-Shock line still retains many of the details established so many years ago:
