Tokyo, October 30, 2018 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced the release of the DW-5600HDR, a new collaboration model with The Hundreds, a lifestyle brand out of Los Angeles.
This is the third collaboration model commemorating 35 years of G-SHOCK, and it also commemorates 15 years for The Hundreds. While replicating the form of the very first G-SHOCK, the new model is meticulously crafted in an all-black design featuring a chic matte black bezel and band.
The new DW-5600HDR sports a compellingly simple yet distinctive design. To stand out against the black body, the brand logo is dynamically positioned on the face. In addition, the band features the phrase “Blood, Sweat & Years,” a concept The Hundreds has always highlighted, very fitting especially in this 15th year of the brand. Like the watch itself, the special model comes in painstakingly designed all-black packaging.
Bobby Hundreds (the founder of the Hundreds) had this to say: “Since we aspire to have a timeless brand, in handpicking our collaborators, we seek out partners with classic legacies. Casio G-SHOCK is a heritage player, having maintained relevance through design and quality over generations. When The Hundreds works with G-SHOCK, we're not just making a watch, we are bridging our histories: A timepiece that stands the test of time.”
