Wow, what a night! Sure we’ve got decades of love for G-Shock and may be a little bias but the night couldn’t have been any less than perfect! So much delicious Asian street food from Tsuru, social lubricate from Kirin, indoor/outdoor venue at The Sheds for the perfect (last day of) spring night and of course the warm hospitality of Jo and the rest of the awesome team at G-Shock Australia.

We were also treated to a talk from Mr. G himself, Kikuo Ibe which included a demonstration of the renowned shock protection with him spectacularly pegging the DW5600 watch off his wrist at a solid sheet of metal! He also unveiled a pair of “yea, we’re just showing off now” all sapphire crystal outer GW5600’s, said to cost around $100,000 each and take about a month to make. Also on display was an Aussie exclusive collab with creative all rounder TA-KU with his take on the humble DW5600 square (DW5600TA-KU-1D) along side the current line up of 35th anniversary releases with the Big Bang Black and Golden Tornado series.

Coincidentally it was pretty much 2 years to the day since our last G-Shock event outing for the Sneaker Freaker collab release and so far judging from the infallible track record, we simple can not wait till the next one!
