3 years ago

2020 was such a turbulent year all over the world that it’s now December before any of us realized. Just as you may be wondering about what to buy for a gift at this time of year, some hot news has arrived.

In commemoration of the 85th anniversary of the founding of Yoshida & Co., a collaboration between PORTER and G-SHOCK, which is synonymous with tough watches, has been realized! This combo of two major Japanese brands that are so popular that they sell out immediately is special enough but this time a limited edition G-Shock is coming!

PORTER × CASIO G-SHOCK 85th Special Edition ¥43780

Based on the familiar “5600 series” with a square design face, this one is tailored to Porter’s original specifications.

The bezel cover is made of hard stainless steel and is accented with an orange color that is a symbol of Porter on the dial. Lightweight and comfortable to wear, with a high-quality finish that gives off a casual atmosphere.

The resin belt that is typical of G-Shock also features a Porter print as a symbol of the collaboration.

In addition to the military-like khaki nylon band shown in the photo above, a black resin band with the Porter logo printed on it is also included, so you can enjoy changing it depending on your style and mood.

This is the attached wristband that uses the same material as the tanker series. When used in combination with a watch, it is easy to put on and take off!

Furthermore, the biggest point of the collaboration is that it even comes with a wristband using the fabric from the “TANKER” series from Porter! If you pass the belt through the wristband, you can easily attach and detach it with a snap button, which is a very special specification that makes this collaboration stand out!

The back is engraved with the number of Porter’s founding year and the 85th anniversary of 2020.

This Anniversary G-Shock is a playful mix of the classics from both companies. This is perfect as a gift for friends, family and lovers, but also as a reward for yourself after a year’s hard work!

From December 18, 2020 (Friday), only at the PORTER flagship store, PORTER STAND, PORTER EXCHANGE, KURA CHIKA by PORTER, POTR, and PORTER official online stores will be on sale, and pre-orders are now available.
