KITH x G-SHOCK GM-6900 « 10th anniversary »
The talented designer Ronnie Fieg continues to work on new projects and collaborations with famous brands. After the opening of his first shop in France and a collection paying tribute to Notorious B.I.G (articles available on this site), KITH unveils a new collaboration with the Japanese of G-SHOCK based on the model GM-6900.
The G-SHOCK 6900 watch was released in 1995. It embodies the style of the Japanese brand and is distinguished by the addition of 3 circular LED back displays above the main screen. The GM variant is an upgraded premium version of the original model, which features the addition of a forged metal fairing.
This G-SHOCK model is shockproof and waterproof up to 200m. It features an electroluminescent backlight, a multi-function alarm and a full automatic calendar until 2099.
Unveiled on the Instagram account of the American label KITH, this third reinterpretation of the G-SHOCK GM-6900 watch adopts a look that is both bold and elegant.
This new version is adorned with a rainbow coating, whose development process required a lot of work and testing to achieve the expected elegant final result. It consists of an iridescent metallic casing, complemented by a translucent strap with the KITH monogram alternating along its length. The buckle appears in blue-tinted metal and the G-SHOCK, Casio and KITH brandings are found on different parts of the dial. This watch comes in a custom case for the occasion, which also includes a second transparent strap.
The KITH x G-SHOCK GM-6900 « 10th anniversary » will be released on March 22, 2021 in KITH stores and on kith.com, for a price around 400$. Don’t sleep !
