Talking about collaborations between brands in the world of orology is today a banal topic since they are immense and happen almost daily, however, and as is usual not only in this field there are always those that stand out from the crowd and that rarely leave us without a smile on the face, and the collaborations of the English brand Bamford are an example of this, and sometimes it doesn’t even take much to brighten our day.
The latest Bamford G-Shock collaboration is all that, a simple digital watch, shock resistant (as it could not be otherwise), with 200m of water resistance and that invites you to the adventures of this summer season.
But this is not the first collaboration in which the two brands have participated, already in 2020 they debuted through the classic square model G-Shock 5610 duly customized with Bamford’s signature with various details in shades of aqua blue in the black resin case of the watch and its strap.
This year the brands opt for a more robust and round model, the G-Shock DW6900, which features the traditional layout, with a larger negative display that provides the time and a whole set of functions that include automatic calendar, alarm, stopwatch, and the three sub-dials. The watch comes with the brand’s usual signature, black resin case and strap, with various aqua blue accents, but now in three different shades, including the blue bottom of the strap which can now be seen when the watch is worn on the pulse.
This is a limited edition that can be purchased through the Bamford online store, for the price of £124.17, interestingly the same price charged two years ago for the previous collaboration, it is fair to say that the effect of inflation is not felt here and therefore, a real find …if there is still time to find one available!
It’s also available from the G-Shock UK online store, albeit at a slightly higher price (£149).
