First partnering in 2017, Chinese label SANKUANZ has introduced another joint effort with G-SHOCK. This joint effort is much more low-key than the duo’s first partnership, which splashed camouflage over a white base; this drop instead favors a minimalist metal façade, quietly updated with technical flair and a price point to match.
Weighing in at $3,900 NT (approximately 1,366 USD), SANKUANZ’s G-SHOCK MTG-B2000SKZ is rich with high-end detail befitting one of the watch brand’s higher-end pieces. A blacked-out carbon fiber-infused metal case and matching double-layer composite strap (metal up top and bold green below) feature the usual G-SHOCK toughness one expects from the Japanese company, alongside Bluetooth and MULTIBAND six-station radio wave reception, which users can connect to their phones via G-SHOCK’s Connected app, which also allows for accurate time-setting.
The watch face is similarly muted for a an understated finish and contrast against the fluorescent green second hand and buttons that match the hues seen beneath the strap. SANKUANZ branding and its “KILL THE WALL” verbiage are emblazoned atop the strap, offering subtle branding that complements the look of the packaging.
G-SHOCK hasn’t slowed its rollout of covetable collaborative models, recently issuing a rainbow-tinged timepiece with KITH.
