Dgk X G-Shock Hits Down Under

G-Shock's highly anticipated collaboration with street skater Stevie William's DGK brand is about to hit our shores, and it will be a fight til the end to secure one of these bad boys. With only 10 watches available Down Under, the timepiece will set you back a cool $299 smacks, but it packs a punch and is guaranteed to last a lifetime. Utilising the ultra stealth GX56 base, the signature DGK purp and black colourway is slathered all over the joint, backlight and all. With only a handfull of stores copping this poppin' watch, make sure you check below for press release and store details on where to purchase.


Casio G-Shock has teamed up with DGK, the skate brand founded by professional street skateboarder Stevie Williams, to create the most shock resistant timepiece and largest case /size in G-Shock history. There are only 10 limited edition GX56DGK-1 timepieces available in Australia from February 2011. DGK is best known for its irreverent style and groundbreaking designs. The G-Shock and DGK watch fuses that eclectic approach with filling the void for rugged watches that can withstand the hits (and misses) of street skateboarding. The GX56DGK-1 watch commands attention with its royal purple and black colourway. Complete with a reverse purple LCD, the GX56DGK-1 features a new triple density, triple layer structure for peak performing shock resistance. Two layers of hard urethane protect against external shock, while a inner third layer of soft urethane that expands and contracts as pressure is applied to absorb impact on the inside. To minimize the chance of detachment when the watch is dropped, lug screws securely fasten the band to case and the buckle to band for added protection. In addition to unrivaled shock resistance, the GX56DGK-1 features advanced Self-Charging, Tough Solar Power technology for unwavering reliability.

Additional G-Shock and DGK features include: Mud Resistance, Full Auto EL Backlight, World Time (31TZ/48 City + UTC), 4 Daily Alarms and 1 Snooze Alarm, Hourly Time Signal, 1/100th Sec. Stopwatch, Countdown Timer, 12/24 Hr. Formats, Battery Power Indicator, Power Saving Function and Mineral Glass face for increased scratch resistance.
