G-SHOCK Goes Wild: A Galapagos Odyssey on Your Wrist

G-SHOCK, the titan of toughness, has embarked on an exciting new adventure – a watchmaking expedition to the enchanting Galapagos Islands in partnership with the Charles Darwin Foundation. This is a vibrant celebration of nature’s resilience and a commitment to preserving its wonders.

G-SHOCK Goes Wild: A Galapagos Odyssey on Your Wrist

Remember the iconic GW-B5600, the G-SHOCK that conquered time with radio wave reception and solar charging? This legendary model serves as the canvas for a stunning trio of watches: the GW-B5600CD collection. Each watch is a rugged canvas adorned with the captivating creatures of the Galapagos, showcasing their unique beauty and the diverse ecosystems they call home.

Start by diving into the azure depths with the GW-B5600CD-1A2. A sleek black resin case houses a dial featuring a menacing hammerhead shark gliding across a sea of blue. Switch on the backlight and its silhouette appears on the LCD screen, a silent predator lurking beneath the waves.

Next, venture into the emerald embrace of the Scalesia forest with the GW-B5600CD-1A3. Darwin’s finch, the feathered embodiment of evolution, perches amidst the lush foliage, its vibrant colours reflected on the dial. When the backlight comes on, the finch takes flight on the LCD screen, a testament to the power of adaptation.

A bright yellow resin case houses a dial depicting a giant tortoise, symbol of wisdom and longevity, traversing a rocky landscape. When backlit, its shell pattern is etched into the LCD, a timeless testament to nature’s endurance.
