2nd G-SHOCK x Bamford London Timepiece Unveiled
G-SHOCK and Bamford London have another new timepiece together.
Casio’s G-Shock brand has collaborated with Bamford London, another watchmaker, to create a collaborative timepiece for a second time. This model, called the DW-6900BWD-1 is a follow up to the original 5600 model.
The new timepiece features George Bamford’s new triple blue concept with three different shades of powder blue being utilised throughout the watch.
Here’s the press release with more information.
Bamford London and G-SHOCK have unveiled a new collaborative timepiece, DW-6900BWD-1, the second to emerge from a union bringing together two of the biggest names in the watch industry.
Available worldwide in August 2022, the unmistakable Bamford blue accented DW-6900BWD-1 is a follow up to 2020s debut Bamford x G-SHOCK watch. The first collaboration nodded to G- SHOCK’s heritage by reimagining the original 5600 model, whipping up a frenzy amongst collectors of both brands, hitting headlines across the globe and consequently, selling out in just 3 minutes.
For this latest launch, they have again selected a classic model from the archive and combined the robustness of a G-SHOCK with George Bamford’s masterful styling.
The DW-6900BWD-1 BAMFORD features George Bamford’s new triple blue concept, utilising three different shades of Bamford’s signature powder blue for striking effect. The blue hue also brings life to the underside of the strap and can be seen when the watch is worn on the wrist. Offsetting all of the blue touches is a jet black dial.
