In their second collaboration together, lifestyle clothing retailer Kith has partnered with G-Shock to create a limited edition version of the all-new — recently announced — metal bezel GM6900.
The Kith x G-Shock GM6900 comes in a distinctive rose gold-tone case — with a real metal bezel and metallic paint for the resin case that measures 53.9 mm × 49.7 mm × 18.6 mm.
The dial is protected by a mineral glass crystal and the watch is water-resistant to 200 meters. Watch functions include hours, minutes, seconds, pm indicator, month, date, and day. There’s also a 1/100 second stopwatch, countdown timer, multifunction alarm, and hourly time signal.
Uniquely, the metal bezel undergoes about 20 forging processes, then cutting, and polishing. The surface is polished to a mirror finish. The custom embossed “KITH” button, which controls the backlight, is also metallic. The dial features a polished metallic paint to match the bezel and button. A resin case that incorporates glass fibers to increase strength also features metallic paint to match the real metal bezel and button.
Interestingly, when you hit the light button on the KITH GM6900, it flashes “Just Us” across the screen, alluding to the collaborative design made just for them.
Each watch comes with two resin bands (black and white) with repeating Kith tonal monogram print. The aesthetic is also displayed on the custom packaging, which houses the watch in a black Kith monogram box with a rose gold logo plate. (Ref. GM6900KTH-4)
The Kith x G-Shock GM6900 will be available starting February 10th at Kith’s retail stores and online at 11 am EST at Kith.com for $380.
