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.)
