Casio G-Shock x Oneness

The iconic Casio G-Shock 5600 series, known for its enduring appeal, has graced the market with countless captivating colorways and configurations over the years. Its significance goes beyond being the silhouette of the very first G-Shock watch introduced in 1983, as it continues to serve as the foundation for exclusive limited editions and sought-after collaborations. As part of the ongoing celebration of the 40th anniversary of the G-Shock, Casio has joined forces with the esteemed Kentucky-based sneaker and streetwear boutique, Oneness, to unveil an exclusive limited edition timepiece in 2023.

Behold the G-Shock x Oneness DW5600ONS234, a stunning interpretation of the classic digital design. Embracing the spirit of Kentucky bourbon, this timepiece features a unique translucent amber-colored bezel and strap, exuding a warm and rich aura that pays homage to the world of whiskey.

Staying true to the G-Shock legacy, the DW5600ONS234 is crafted with the reliable combination of resin, a mineral glass crystal, and a stainless steel caseback, firmly secured by four small screws. The watch maintains the standard 43.8mm diameter, 13.5mm thickness, and a lug-to-lug profile of 48.9mm, offering a comfortable and familiar fit. As expected from a G-Shock, it boasts an impressive water resistance of 200 meters, with the outer bezel in transparent orange resin and an elegant engraving of the Oneness logo on the caseback.

The distinct translucent orange resin case and strap are reminiscent of the alluring hues found in a glass of Kentucky bourbon. The strap is a work of art itself, featuring a captivating gradient effect, transitioning from golden amber to a deep reddish brown, mimicking the exquisite shades of the cherished whiskey. Enhancing the warm tones, the stainless steel buttons and pin buckle receive a gold ion-plated finish, adding a touch of luxury to the timepiece. The dial plate encircling the inverted red LCD screen proudly displays the Oneness logo, accompanied by the inspiring quote "What Are You Waiting On," elegantly printed on its gold-colored surface.

Powering this exceptional collaboration is Module No. 3229, a reliable digital movement found in various 5600 series watches. The timepiece operates on a single CR2016 battery cell, delivering all the standard G-Shock functionalities, including a stopwatch, countdown timer, alarm, automatic calendar (up to the year 2099), and an electro-luminescent backlight. With an impressive accuracy rating of +/-15 seconds per month and a lightweight resin construction, the watch weighs just 53 grams, ensuring comfort and practicality.

The G-Shock x Oneness DW5600ONS234 comes as a coveted collector's set, complete with an exclusive Oneness-branded display stand, a fabric bag, and an exquisitely designed box reminiscent of premium Kentucky bourbon packaging. This limited-edition timepiece is priced at $130 USD, and though the exact quantity remains undisclosed, it promises to be a treasured addition to any collection. Available at select Oneness boutiques and the official G-Shock website, this distinctive model appeals not only to Oneness fans but also to those with an appreciation for the essence of Kentucky bourbon. Embrace the spirit of collaboration and secure your piece of this remarkable fusion of design and inspiration.
