For the past year, G-SHOCK has been traveling the world on its global G-SHOCK “Shock The World” Campaign. While the party and campaign fusing music, art, fashion sports and lifestyle had traveled across continents and countries with parties and events rallying G-SHOCK fans around the world, the campaign also marks a series of collaborations with renowned local artists, labels and creative collectives. Japan’s Swagger had taken part in this fanfare as well, and created a collaborative DW5600 (one of the label’s most iconic models and most favored canvas for collaboration).
The Swagger touch gives the tough watch a street dandy vibe with black and red plaid print on the straps. The watch face stays cool in black aside from the digits and “SHOCK THE WORLD” logo which are highlighted in pink. Of course, as of other G-SHOCK numbers, Swagger’s DW5600 is shock and water resistant– an unbreakable watch whose cool exterior now perhaps belies its resilience. The watch will be released in Japan this coming Saturday on February 20, and in the United States on March 1 at retailers such as Dave’s Quality Meat, Conveyor at Fred Segal and American Rag Cie.
Release Date: February 20th (Saturday) | March 1st (Monday)
