G-Shock × A BATHING APE®
A BATHING APE® is once again collaborating with G-SHOCK to introduce a new watch on March 21st, 2020. BAPE®’s iconic motifs boast a strong presence on the watch face, backlight and strap.
Since its creation in 1983, the famous G-SHOCK by CASIO has evolved continually in pursuit of toughness. It brought the new concept of toughness to wristwatches, an indispensable item of everyday life. Even today, a quarter of a century since its creation, the watch continues to be a beloved item at the forefront of the wristwatch scene. A collaboration between G-SHOCK, which could be referred to as a wristwatch pioneer, and A BATHING APE® will be released on March 21st, 2020 exclusively on BAPE.COM and ZOZOTOWN.
he model that is being used as the basis is the first basic G-SHOCK model with a round face, the ‘DW-5700’ series, first released in 1987. This model has been brought back to life as the ‘DW-5750’ in 2018 for the 35th anniversary of G-SHOCK, reissued under the theme of ‘Back to the basics’ but making use of contemporary cutting-edge technology. For this collaboration, the watch face is dyed with A BATHING APE®’s striking red color and camo peeking out, accompanied with a white strap featuring the BAPE STA™ logo. There is also a playful feature where the ape head appears when the back light is turned on in the dark.
This collaboration brings together the icons of A BATHING APE® and ‘DW-5750’ – which inherited the DNA of the legendary ‘DW-5700’ model. The reissued model is highly exclusive, being the favorite of famous musicians and never before released in Japan. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the exclusive product that encapsulates the innovative technology and design cultivated by both brands, as well as their history and stories.
