Once again G-Shock teams up with Globe and goes beyond simply collaborating on a timepiece. For Fall 2011 the two brands present both a watch and matching skate lifestyle products.
““Inspired by military night operatives, the uniform matte black, GRX5600GE-1 timepiece features a contrasting red LCD display with a subtle integration of the GLOBE logo on the face and band along with a fabric band keeper. Staying true to G-Shock’s toughness and technology, the GRX5600GE-1 features, Shock Resistance, 200M Water Resistance, Tough Solar power and tide/moon graphs making it the perfect accessory for any action sport enthusiast. To compliment the design of the watch, the boardsports products are also produced in a sleek black with red accents.
The Cruiserboard is 8.5” x 32” and is constructed of 7-ply hardrock maple with custom Globe EVA traction foam grip that’s easy on the feet. Premium 58mm/78A urethane wheels and Slant trucks with GLOBE first bushings provide a smooth and nimble ride.
GLOBE’s all new Comanche Boot is made from irregular leather, canvas and shaved suede for a vintage military look, has a rear zip entry, waxed rope laces and a metal speed lace collar to tie things up. It also comes with a custom vintage dog tag.””
The watch, skateboard deck and boots will release in November 2011.
