G-Shock U.S. released a special collaboration watch with graffiti art supply line KRINK to celebrate the release of Krink’s newest book “KRINK New York City: Graffiti, Art, and Invention.” The book is a visual memoir of founder Craig Costello’s impressive career and includes his street art from San Francisco and New York in the ’80s and ’90s, Krink’s launch with New York retailer Alife, and high-fashion collaborations with many prominent brands. Craig Costello is also known as “KR,” and Krink sells inks and markers.
The limited G-Shock GM6900-1KR is based on the GM-6900-1, the first metal 6900 model featuring a silver stainless steel bezel and black resin band. “KRINK NEW YORK CITY” logos are printed in white on the upper and lower band, and the “Graffiti, Art, and Invention” title is printed on the band keeper.
A special hoodie celebrating the book is also available at Alife.
Krink and G-Shock previously collaborated in 2011 for the G-Shock DW-6900KR-8.
