Introducing the G-SHOCK Ref. 5600 By Online Ceramics Limited Edition For Hodinkee
DOVER, N.J., Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Hodinkee, the leading destination for all things watches and horology, has collaborated with Los Angeles-based design house Online Ceramics and G-SHOCK to announce the G-SHOCK Ref. 5600 By Online Ceramics Limited Edition For Hodinkee.
Across 2020, 2021, and 2022, Hodinkee launched a trio of G-SHOCK watches designed in partnership with musician John Mayer, each selling out in a matter of minutes. As a follow-up to the three-part collaboration, Hodinkee and John Mayer are back with a new project that expands upon the legacy created by Mayer and paves the path for three new individuals to design their own G-SHOCK collaboration with Hodinkee. The project is curated by Mayer, with each collaborator connected to him via music, design, and, of course, watches. The first in the trio was the G-SHOCK Ref. 6900 - Subtract By Ed Sheeran, and this second installment with Online Ceramics continues the series, with the final to be announced in the coming weeks.
"We're excited to unveil the latest collaboration with Hodinkee and Online Ceramics' imaginative touch," said Tadashi Shibuya, Vice President, Casio Timepiece Division. "This series represents a collective journey of imagination, with each collaborator leaving an indelible mark on the G-SHOCK legacy. We look forward to the third and final chapter, as we continue to reimagine the intersection of creativity, innovation, and timekeeping."
Beloved for their Dead & Co T-shirt designs, Online Ceramic was founded in 2016 by Elijah Funk and Alix Ross, and is well-known in the music scene for its unique approach to graphic design. The brand has developed a cult following for playful, trippy, and often tie-dyed designs. Now, the brand is adding a twist to the G-Shock 5600 with its distinct design style, to offer a lighthearted and playful take on the classic timepiece.
The G-SHOCK 5600, which has a cult following of its own, sits at the core of the G-SHOCK international lineup and has been the canvas for myriad past collaborations with artists, musicians, streetwear icons, and more. Online Ceramic's take on the timepiece comes in a deep forest green, with the strap emblazoned with "Online Ceramics" in a psychedelic font as well as a screen surrounded by yellow, red, and orange accents and Online Ceramic's snail logo. Framing the face, bright yellow text reads "Sun Watch, Moon Time" and "Mushroom House Haunted Wagon," further soliifying the vibe that feels like a walk into some very strange woods. As a final easter egg, when the wearer presses the button for the backlight a special phrase is revealed on screen that reads "Love Grows In The Sunshine." This light and wearable watch doesn't sacrifice functionality or hard-wearing intent, and has a resin case and strap, mineral glass covering the screen, and 200 meters of water resistance. Inside, we find a modern G-Shock module that offers time, date, alarm, stopwatch, countdown timer, and, of course, that electro-luminescent backlight.
You can purchase the G-SHOCK Ref. 5600 By Online Ceramics for $185 USD in the Hodinkee Shop on November 16th at 11:00am ET.
