When the tough G-SHOCK meets the auspicious koi, the beautiful meaning is gathered on the wrist, and the “NISHIKIGOI” theme watch celebrates the time.
This time, G-SHOCK integrates Japanese koi culture to create three wrist art trends. The DW-6900JK-4 pure white strap is inserted with red patches to symbolize the clean and elegant quality of the “red and white” koi. The irregular backlight design also echoes the overall pattern. GA-100JK-4A is inspired by the “Taisho three colors”. The red strap, black patches, and white dial are intertwined with dazzling colors. The small dial pointer at 12 o’clock is designed in a koi shape, which is added in a leisurely swimming posture. Lively and interesting. DW-5600JK-1 draws red patches on the black strap, and the dial is decorated with white to represent the “Three Colors of Showa”. The backlight design is also harmonious and unified with the dial.
The watch ring is engraved with a swimming koi, and the exterior of the watch box depicts a scene of koi playing, and a product introduction card designed by Tokyo artist BlackEyePatch is built-in. G-SHOCK has incorporated the trend of toughness and hard-core wishes into the watch, just waiting for you to step forward and wear your wrist koi!
