Whether or not you are a fan of Canadian fashion brand Herschel Supply does not matter. What matters is, this is the very first watch from the brand best known for its awesome bags which makes it a good enough reason for any G-Shock collectors to want one.
If that doesn’t, I am sure the military inspired design of the CASIO G-Shock x Herschel G-Lide Watch (GLX-5600HSC-3CR), as it is called, will. Anywho, here’s what to expect:
“The digital timepiece is engraved with the phrase, “YOU CAN SURF LATER,” on the stainless-steel back cover, referencing the DIY mottos and designs soldiers would engrave onto their Zippo® lighters. The Herschel G-Lide is also outfitted with a durable matte army Green resin case and band, Gun Metal IP buckle, Dark Green screen-printed Herschel Supply logo and HSCO First Watch Division branding and a Yellow face with mineral glass highlighted by auto electroluminescent (EL) backlight technology with afterglow functionality—a subtle nod to the right-angle Olive Drab Fulton MX-991/U flashlight still used by the United States Army. ”
As always, in addition to the design touches lent to it by Herschel Supply, the CASIO G-Shock x Herschel G-Lide Watch also features the usual suspects of G-Shock technology, including shock resistance, water resistance to 200 meters (660 feet), auto EL backlight w/ afterglow, flash alert, tide graph, 100th sec. stopwatch, countdown timer, multi-function alarms, world time, mute function and full auto calendar.
Topping of the impressive watch is an exclusive Herschel Supply Dark Green tin case and co-branded G-Shock for Herschel Supply box.
