As the iconic Yohji Yamamoto‘s Y’s label marks its 50th anniversary, a unique collaboration with G-SHOCK breathes life into an exclusive timepiece. For the first time ever, the two esteemed brands unite to bring forth a harmonious fusion of Yamamoto’s subtle fashion sensibilities and G-SHOCK’s cutting-edge design.
Y’s x G-SHOCK GM-S5600YS-1: A modern classic
Drawing inspiration from G-SHOCK’s legendary 5600 series, the Y’s x G-SHOCK GM-S5600YS-1 watch presents a downsized and more streamlined version for contemporary wrists. The collaboration is as functional as it is stylish, boasting 20 ATM water resistance, exceptional shock resistance, and an EL backlight that ensures visibility in the darkest conditions.
Attention to detail: refined design meets durability
This partnership showcases a metal bezel and a timeless resin band, while an additional custom-made textile band offers a touch of versatility. To safeguard the watch face, an ingenious cover is included, which can be easily retracted and secured using a buckle and velcro fastening system.
The Y’s x G-SHOCK GM-S5600YS-1 is a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship of both brands, with each component thoughtfully finished to create a cohesive aesthetic. From the honed-finished buckle and case to the hairline-finished bezel top and mirror-finished side buttons and screws, every detail is accounted for. The watch is enveloped in an all-black color scheme, capturing Y’s signature look while integrating metallic accents for a sophisticated and polished appearance.
