G-Shock are good at a lot, but there’s one thing they know how to do better than most. Collaborations. That’s right, the humble Casio G-Shock continues to be one of the top everyman’s watches thanks to the unrelenting number of creative collaborations that they produce. Their most recent collaboration might be one of their best yet, in the Casio G-Shock GLX5600 Surf Life Saving Australia edition.
Over the last few years we’ve seen collaborations with the likes of Bamford, KITH, Dragon Ball Z, the Gorillaz and even a release inspired by Bruce Lee. But the reason we love the Surf Life Saving Australia edition so much is because it isn’t with a big multinational brand that is famous around the world.
It’s a collaboration with a local Australian community not-for-profit who’s mission is to keep our beaches safe.
The watch uses the GLX5600 model as its base, but features a completely white case and strap, as well as the iconic yellow and red colours of Surf Life Saving Australia.
Even better than the custom colour combination is the swag that the watch arrives with. The Casio G-Shock GLX5600 Surf Life Saving Australia arrives with a special edition towel and dry-bag, which features the logos of both G-Shock and Surf Life Saving Australia.
As far as features, the watch boasts a world time function that tracks 29 time zones, a tide and moon tracker for surfers, chronograph, countdown timer, full auto-calendar till 2099, three independent alarms and a battery life of seven years.
So if you’re a fan of Australian beaches, and the remarkable work of the folks who get up everyday to protect them, then you’ll find a lot to like about the new Casio G-Shock GLX5600 Surf Life Saving Australia.
