After teasing an upcoming collaboration with animated British rock band Gorillaz, G-SHOCK has now turned its attention to Japanese streetwear purveyor BAPE. To celebrate the BAPE’s 25th anniversary, the pair has teamed up on an exclusive model taking design cues from G-SHOCK’s GA-110 silhouette.
As seen above, the watch is wrapped in BAPE’s signature 1ST CAMO design, while gold detailing comes in on the face and back of the watch. “BAPE” and “G-SHOCK” branding and the label’s ubiquitous APE head motif can also be found throughout. This special BAPE x G-SHOCK 25th anniversary model will be pre-sold at BAPE’s “BAPE XXV” exhibition being held this Saturday, September 29 in Tokyo for a ¥32,000 +tax (approximately $284 USD + taxes). The model will then hit all BAPE locations on Saturday, October 6.
