KITH and Casio’s G-SHOCK have teamed up to give the GM-6900 timepiece a luxurious rework. The collaborative watch features an eye-catching rose gold construction and marks the first time the 6900 model will see its metal bezel. Earlier this year, G-SHOCK introduced the initial batch of the GM-6900 series to commemorate its 25th anniversary which will release subsequently.
Retaining its identity, the limited-edition watch upholds its tactical and shock-resistant details while channeling KITH’s style-forward approach. The rose gold colorway extends throughout the case and crystal, offering a premium and sleek look. G-SHOCK’s signature “G” branded button is replaced with a copper version bearing an engraved version of KITH’s logo, which also shows up on the clip. Meanwhile, the accessory also comes with interchangeable resin bands in black or white iterations highlighting the retailer’s all-over monogram print. Paired with a special edition case and box, the KITH x G-SHOCK GM-6900 is expected to drop on Monday, Feb. 10 at Kith retailers and online starting at 11 a.m. EST.
