Bamford Inspires With G-Shock Collaboration

Bamford Inspires With G-Shock Collaboration

We don’t normally focus upon quartz watches, but we are huge admirers of both Bamford Watch Department and G-SHOCK. Since it’s inception by renowned designer Kikuo Ibe in 1983, they have sold over 100 million watches across the globe.

Their inaugural collaboration with the launch of a Limited Edition G-SHOCK 5610, a stylish nod to the original G-SHOCK, and a celebration of the brand’s heritage.  This very limited run of timepieces will feature in the brand’s iconic Origins product category, and launched in the UK on 17th September 2020.

Designed around the original G-SHOCK rectangular case shape, the 5610 watch features an advanced functionality specifications, including Multi Band 6 Radio Controlled technology ensuring the most accurate timekeeping and boasts solar power for maximum reliability.  This functionality is housed in a slim, shock resistant, resin case that frames the scratch resistant glass lens. Bamford Watch Department have embellished the case, dial and hands with their distinct BWD signature Aqua blue. 

We are excited to be working as an official partner to G-SHOCK, a brand that has been on my wish list to work with for some time. I am a huge fan of the brand, and have a treasured collection of their watches. Working with them on a new timepiece that takes it’s inspiration from the original that was launched in 1983 is very special. I am honoured to have the opportunity to be able to add our own inspiration and design input to this true classic. We look forward to building our relationship further through this new partnership.”
