To commemorate Wu-Tang Clan‘s upcoming 20th anniversary, the band have teamed up with G-Shock on a limited edition watch. Taking the classic G-Shock DW-6900 as the starting point, Wu-Tang’s signature yellow was applied to the dial as well as the font on the bezel of the watch and the signature ‘G’ button at the bottom of the face. At the top of the dial is the hip-hop crews ‘W’ logo which lights up at the touch of of a button. Being a G-shock, the watch can handle the bumps and scrapes of everyday life as well as being fully water-resistant. A fitting tribute to the game changing group and a solid all-around piece from G-Shock, the watch is currently slated for a North-America only release. Stay tuned for further details.
