G-Shock Australia revealed the G-Shock 35th Anniversary Red Out Collection which is the third anniversary series following the Big Bang Black (Neo Matte Black) and Gold Tornado collections. The Red Out series includes the classic digital models DW-5635C-4 (left), DW-5735C-4 (bottom), DW-6935C-4 (right), and the analog-digital GA-735C-4A (top). Japan will also be getting the solar and radio-powered AWG-M535C-4AJR.
The collection pays tribute to the original G-Shock color scheme with an emphasis on the red secondary color. The bezels and bands are a matte red and the display is a red-tinted reverse LCD. The G-Shock logos and select face markings are black and the buttons, buckles, and metal band keepers have a black IP. These models also have a commemorative 35th Anniversary case back with a black IP. Like the 35th Anniversary Big Bang Black Collection, the Red Out Collection uses a special particle mix to create a unique ultra-matte surface.
Perhaps the most interesting of the four from a collector’s point of view is the DW-5735C-4, based on the DW-5750 which traces its lineage back to the DW-5400 from 1985 which was the first G-Shock with a round face. The last DW-5700 anniversary model, the DW-5725B-7 from the 25th Anniversary, was a screw back model, but with a list price of $229 AUD it is seems unlikely that the DW-5735C-4 is too. We haven’t seen a new DW-5700 model in a very long time and this seems to mark the beginning of a revival, as a standard DW-5750E-1D and blacked-out DW-5750E-1B are also slated for a future release.
Update: Casio announced the AWG-M535C-4AJR (¥28,000 JPY), DW-5635C-4JR (¥16,500 JPY), DW-5735C-4JR (¥16,500 JPY), DW-6935C-4JR (¥16,500 JPY), and GA-735C-4AJR (¥20,000 JPY) for a January 2018 release in Japan. The DW-5635C-4, DW-5735C-4, DW-6935C-4, and GA-735C-4A will also be released in the rest of Asia and most likely internationally.
