The product listing that you see above is a Google translation of the original Japanese: 従来の液晶と比べ斬新なグラフィックを搭載し、日本でのG-SHOCKブームの火付け役のひとつとなったDW-5900Cシリーズ。 1990年にまず海外で発売され人気を博し、逆輸入で日本でもブレイクしたDW-5900C。 「3つ目」と呼ばれた最初のモデルです。
A better translation by Babylon 9 online:
"The DW-5900C series that it carried novel graphic in comparison with the conventional liquid crystal, and became one of the instigator of the G-SHOCK boom in Japan. DW-5900C which at first it was released abroad in 1990 and won popularity, and broke through by reimportation in Japan. It is [3 eyes] and called first model."--(Babylon 9 translation)
This explains that the DW-5900C-1 was first released outside of Japan in 1990 and won popularity as the first G-Shock to include an animated graphic feature in addition to the traditional textual display. It is also the first G-Shock to have 3 eyes. It was finally sold in Japan in 1992.
