Skate lifestyle and apparel brand HUF Worldwide is collaborating with Casio G-Shock to celebrate its 15th anniversary with the release of the DW5600HUF-1. This limited edition model based on the classic square G-Shock and features an all-black case and bands and a clean white face with the HUF bar logo. The logo is also seen on the EL backlight when activated. Each of the brand’s 15 years is highlighted on the band along with “Hours Unaccounted For” as a play on the company name and anniversary. The stainless steel case back has a custom graphic of the Party Puss character with a “15 Beers Strong” tagline. The watch comes in a custom case that resembles a HUF shoebox.
The DW5600HUF-1 will be available on Friday, July 14 at select retailers including all HUF stores and HUF online as well as G-SHOCK.com. The list price is $120 USD.
