This autumn’s G-Shock collaboration with Japanese fashion label N. Hoolywood (a.k.a. Mister Hollywood) returns to the DW-D5600 as its base model. Like N. Hoolywood’s previous military-inspired releases, the watch has large block lettering on the face, a black bullbar face protector, and a custom black ion plated case back. Unlike the standard resin bands of the past few years, this 2018 model includes a unique black nylon band. Unlike most NATO-style straps included with G-Shock watches, this is a Velcro-style band that allows for a precise fit. The band also has a nylon strap keeper.
The DW-D5600 base is a more advanced version of the DW-5600. Features of the DW-D5600 that the DW-5600 lacks include world time, 3 alarms with 1 snooze alarm, an auto-activation function for the EL backlight, and an estimated 10-year battery life.
The N. Hoolywood x G-Shock DW-D5600NH-1JR will be released on 24 November 2018 in Japan at the Mr. Hollywood store in Shibuya and Mr. Hollywood Osaka, and also online at store.n-hoolywood.com, beans1989.com, and Collect Store. The retail price is ¥18,500 JPY plus tax.
Update: Casio America is releasing the DWD5600NH-1 with a list price of $160 USD. Casio Singapore announced the release of the DW-D5600NH-1JR with the release date to be revealed on Instagram @gshock_sg. G-Shock Italy also made an announcement, so it looks like this watch will be released worldwide.
