Releasing on October 26 at PORTER's website, the combination analog and digital watch features a traditional dial as well as a screen displaying the time and day of the week.
Its metal bezel and band are coated in Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC), a wear-resistant material that protects against abrasion and looks pretty sharp, too. To iterate the timepiece's elevated feel, the mostly all-black watch is accented with splashy gold markings.
This AWM-500's most interesting facet, though, is informed by PORTER's signature storage know-how: the watch's case, a circular cross-body bag outfitted with a top handle and adjustable strap, doubles as a fashion-forward accessory. The front of the bag is branded with G-SHOCK's signature impact resistance curve alongside PORTER's logo patch.
The bag's zipper pulls mimic the watch's hour and minute hands, rendered in red and gold respectively.
G-SHOCK's AWM-500 was first introduced as a higher-end riff on the AW-500, the company's first analog watch. Featuring a "Full Metal" makeup and an LCD display, the AWM-500 built on the success of its iconic predecessor. PORTER and G-SHOCK bring this legacy to new heights.
Priced at approximately $1,250, the collaborative AWM-500 model will set you back significantly more than other iterations of the AWM-500, most of which fall somewhere between $500 and $600.
If you're not entirely sold on the price, don't forget: you're getting a PORTER bag as part of the package, too. Wouldn't it be nice if all luxury watches came with a matching purse?
