There’s a new A Bathing Ape, aka BAPE, watch, this time, it is a collaboration between the Japanese fashion brand and Japanese watchmaker Casio. The A Bathing Ape x G-Shock DW-5750 Watch, as it is known, is based on the DW-5750 introduced in 2018 for the G-Shock 35th anniversary.
DW-5750 is a re-born model of the original DW-5700 series first released in 1987 which was the first G-Shock model to sport a round design.
For this collaboration, the A Bathing Ape x G-Shock DW-5750 Watch received a watch face dyed with an eye-catching A Bathing Ape red ape camo, a white watch band decorated with BAPE STA logo, and a playful feature where the ape head appears when the backlight is turned on.
