G-SHOCK and Honda have teamed up to celebrate the Super Cub's 60th anniversary. The Honda Super Cub motorcycle has 100 million units produced and 1,000 models of a special edition DW-5600 will celebrate its storied history.
A black band is the perfect surface for a Super Cub-inspired pattern that includes the phrase "NICEST PEOPLE" while the white face features Honda branding and a backlight that reveals an outline of the Cub's front housing. On the back of the watch, a stainless steel casing is engraved with the number 60 in the shape of a heart to celebrate the anniversary and "100 million" above that to commemorate the production achievement.
The limited edition Honda Super Cub x G-SHOCK DW-5600 is expected to be sold in April of this year at Honda dealers in Japan for ¥14,040 JPY, about $130 USD. Casio also recently announced a "Sakura Storm" cherry blossom series of watches.
