F.C.R.B. (F.C. Real Bristol) may be a fictional team, but its presence in the industry is not only real, but also extremely significant. Especially in the 2010 FIFA World Cup season, F.C.R.B. plays a significant role in Nike’s “Write The Future” campaign with key collaborations, special items and not to mention, a great retail venture for all soccer fans out there seeking some gear for game-watching this summer. Keeping up with the pace of projects and collaborations, F.C.R.B. branched out and joined hands with Casio’s toughest watch, the G-Shock to create a special edition F.C.R.B. Casio G-Shock DW-5600.
Keeping things tough and simple, the F.C.R.B. G-Shock is extremely understated in all-black. Upon a first quick glance-over, the collaborative watch seems to be just a regular black G-Shock DW-5600, but, upon a closer inspection, the iconic G-Shock model is branded with the F.C. Real Bristol name on the watch face and on the back light as well. Flipping the watch over, a special F.C.R.B. etched back gives the collaboration the recognition it deserves.
For those who love a little extra spice and story to their gear without having to flaunt it ostentatiously, these are one step up from your favorite basic black G-Shock DW-5600 and subtly and coolly so.
