With designs inspired by creatures from the Galapagos Islands
Made with bio-based resin for less environmental impact
TOKYO, Nov. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Casio Computer Co., Ltd. today announced the launch of new additions to the G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches. The three new GW-B5600CD watches are the brand's latest collaboration with the Charles Darwin Foundation, an organization dedicated to environmental conservation activities in the Galapagos Islands.
The Charles Darwin Foundation is an international non-profit organization committed to the conservation of the natural environment of the Galapagos Islands. The organization is involved in a variety of activities, including studying the marine and terrestrial life and ecosystems of the Galapagos Islands and promoting the island's nature conservation efforts. The latest collaboration marks the second partnership between G-SHOCK and the Charles Darwin Foundation, following the first in 1999.
The new GW-B5600CD shock-resistant watches feature designs that incorporate silhouettes of creatures that live in the Galapagos Islands, along with the rich natural environments where they live. While based on the GW-B5600, a watch equipped with radio wave reception and Tough Solar charging capabilities, the new GW-B5600CD watches feature a bezel and strap made from bio-based resin produced from resources renewable organic.
Each of the three watches features a dial with a unique design motif: a hammerhead shark in an ocean setting for the GW-B5600CD-1A2; a Darwin's finch among the foliage of a Scalesia forest, one of its preferred habitats, for GW-B5600CD-1A3; and a Galapagos giant tortoise in a rocky location, one of its favorite habitats, for the GW-B5600CD-9. Silhouettes of each featured creature also appear on the LCD screen when the backlight is turned on.
The Charles Darwin Foundation logo is engraved on the caseback and a statement in Spanish meaning "I support the conservation of the Galapagos" is printed on the bracelet. A portion of the proceeds will be used to support the conservation activities of the Charles Darwin Foundation.
