Brands: Hender Scheme, G-SHOCK

Key Piece: DW-5600HS-4JF

Editor’s Notes: While Hender Scheme is renowned for its premium leather products highlighted by various footwear and apparel, the imprint has teamed up with Casio’s G-SHOCK watch division to produce an exclusive variation of the brand’s iconic DW-5600 model.

The watch’s overall design remains untouched, however, it bears a stylish light beige hue, while flaunting minimal appeal with a clean face and no text, as well as the button function labels situated on the case back instead.

Punctuating the collaboration is a vegetable-tanned leather band achieved through a process known as “pit tanning” and it’s hand-sewn. The band boasts a natural look that is meant to age with use, as the watch also includes a standard resin band that matches the body and comes in a custom box.

Other notable functions of the watch are its shock-resistant structure, water resistance at 20 meters, stopwatch, multi alarm, full calendar, EL backlight that displays Hender Scheme’s brand logo discreetly and more.

Availability for this exclusive DW-5600HS-4JF timepiece will begin on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at Hender Scheme’s online shop and select retailers in Japan.

For more from G-SHOCK, this updated watch is the brand’s ultimate military-inspired design you need in your collection.
