The GLOBE x CASIO G-SHOCK gets the official unveiling as the two parties team-up for a late spring release involving a watch, fitted cap and a sneaker. The watch features a white/gold design with GLOBE in the backlight. The shoes also include G-SHOCK branding in the outsole as everything comes packaged in a sturdy briefcase. Available in April 2010 at select retailers.
G-Shock has joined forces with the irreverent and iconic Action Sports Company, Globe. Like G-Shock, Globe is a cutting-edge and long-standing brand, and together they have created a new limited edition collection, which features the DW5600GLB-7 Watch in a classic white body and white casing with contrasting black screen and gold detail, complemented by a High-Top Shoe and Cap. This Spring, the Limited edition G-Shock X Globe Collaboration will be released to an elite cross-section of Specialty Retailers and Skate Shops across the planet.
They say never mess with a classic, but generations change. This watch has all the lines of its predecessor 27 years before, but now has been updated with Globe detailing, gold accents, and a Globe matrix dial design for a style that won’t quit. Never say never. The result is a classic Timepiece featuring G-Shock’s legendary 200M water resistance & shock resistance, multi-function alarm, countdown timer, 1/100 second stopwatch and auto-calendar with white resin band and globe backlight. Additionally, the Globe x G-Shock Ltd Edition package breaks boundaries by incorporating a fitted cap with black on black embroidery, sleek leather mesh bill and custom lining as well as the Destroyer, an 80s retro high-top white sneaker with black and gold detailing to perfectly coordinate with the DW5600GLB-7 watch.
“G-Shock has actively supported the Action Sports culture across the world and is known for its product’s superior quality, so we are very proud to partner with them,” said Matt Wong, President of Globe’s Product Division. “Creating unique, yet classic products are a priority for Globe.”
“The G-Shock pillars of water and shock resistance have built a strong affinity within the surf and skate communities,” said Shigenori Itoh, Vice President of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “We are thrilled to collaborate with the legendary skate and surf brand Globe to further enrich our connection to this active lifestyle.”
