Street artist/entrepreneur, KRINK, has collaborated with G-Shock on a new limited edition DW-6900 watch. It comes in a metallic matte silver finish (Casio pulled it out of it’s library especially for KR) and for the first time in G-Shock history, the watch will bare a full mirror face and LCD display. Each G-Shock x KRINK timepiece has a custom-made “silver on silver” commemorative tin for its collectors. The watch will release April 2011 at select stores throughout the United States.
Been a hot minute since we’ve shown you some dopeness from G-Shock. They hooked up with X-Large for this one, and good news is that it’s available now, and we still have a good couple weeks before Christmas. It comes in black or white, and is going for $160 over at colette.
We’ve had many battles of opinions at the Sneakhype offices, as to whether or not G-Shock collabs are cleaner than regular model G-Shock’s. Well, this one puts a tally on the board for the collabs, Black Scale & The Supply Circuit came together for this one. It’s already available, and not too steep at the price of $150. Get it here.
G-Shock is looking to revisit its roots of rugged practicality with the upcoming release of their new “Master of G Series” colorways. Both models feature a blue hue that is supposed to be based on the blues of the sky & ocean. They’re made for professional diving, they’re solar powered and effin sexy. Though these colors aren’t yet available, the same model in other colors are. Just checked google shopping and found a few, as well as, on Amazon.
A cool G-Shock collab… I guess. I gotta hate a little bit though.. just because if/when Sneakhype does a collab with G-Shock, it’s gonna be so much more ballin than this thing, it’s not even going to be a fair comparison. But, you can’t buy a Sneakhype x G-Shock because it doesn’t exist. And you can buy a Futura x G-Shock for about 300 here, so I guess Futura wins… this time.
There is nothing fresher than a blacked out G-Shock, especially when it’s a Mudman. This Matte Black edition is completely black out including the face, it also features a solar powered battery and Multi-Band 6 Atomic Clock Calibration; meaning the watch will automatically calibrate itself according to Atomic Clock settings across 3 continents, North America, Europe, and Asia. Stealthy Dopeness. Hit the link for more pictures.
Limited to 1000 pieces. $600 bucks. You can buy it here. Super fresh indeed… if you don’t have a white watch yet, you should probably buy this. You may say, “EG, the G-Shock is played out… why would I pay so much for one?” Well, my friend, you make good points… however, if you were to buy any other G-Shock, you wouldn’t get the sweet metal lockbox case this one comes in. (SShhhh… you can put your weeeed in it.)
To celebrate UCS’ 8th anniversary they hooked up with the almighty G-Shock. Like usual the collab does not dissappoint. Looks like a lighter yellow with black accents, and a star design around the bands. I like it a lot, i’m guessing any of you G-Shock fans will as well. Expect it to drop September 19th, check some more pics after the jump.
