Burton X G-Shock GDF100BTN-1
burton_x_g-shock_gdf100btn-1 collaboration 2012 designer watch snowboard
Snowboard enthusiasts know Burton for their upscale gear – boards, boots and cold weather apparel.
It’s a comfortable fit for them to collaborate with G-Shock on a watch that is equiped with the
technology that is so handy for this winter sport.
The G-Shock model GDF100BTN-1 features altimeter, barometer and temperature readouts.
As always, G-Shock is rugged enough to put up with the harsh rough-and-tumble conditions of a
mountainside sport. Release of this watch is expected December 2012.

UPDATE – October 11, 2012 Casio released details about this edition – in their words, “TOKYO, October 11, 2012 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the limited edition collaborative watch with Burton Snowboards, created to celebrate the G-SHOCK 30th anniversary. This limited edition watch seamlessly merges functionality and style in a way that only Burton and G-SHOCK could.”

“Building on the classic GDF-100 twin sensor watch, the Burton collaborative watch is packed with mountain-friendly features, not only for those who enjoy outdoor sports, but also for anyone who works in harsh outdoor conditions. The new GDF-100BTN-1 is equipped with two types of sensors, one for air pressure and the other for temperature, making it highly practical and functional for use in the great outdoors. The unique, front-facing pressure sensor located at the 9 o’clock position is designed to take in ambient air for barometric pressure readings at the touch of a button and automatically measure atmospheric pressure every two hours. In addition to displaying atmospheric pressure numerically, the watch displays air pressure changes from the previous reading within a circular display located at the 2 o’clock position. The wearer can use this information as a guide to forecast abrupt changes in weather conditions.”

“The watch also converts pressure readings into altitude readings up to 10,000 meters, using atmospheric pressure conversion. Altitude is shown every five seconds for the first three minutes after the start of altitude measurement, and is shown every two minutes after that. Data obtained through the temperature sensor is displayed simultaneously with either the atmospheric pressure or altitude. This allows the wearer to quickly confirm current environmental conditions, making the watch very useful for back-country snowboarding, snowmobiling mountaineering or backpacking.”

“High-brightness LEDs have been used for the display back-lighting, providing greater LCD readability in overcast and nighttime conditions. With other features including world time display with 48 cities, 5 daily alarms, 1/100th second stopwatch, countdown timer and 12/24-hour formats, the GDF-100 offers rich functionality for the world adventurer in addition to shock resistance and 200-meter water resistance.”

“The GDF100-BTN-1 case has a matte black finish combined with glacier blue accents for the detailing and display. A custom, dual-layer synthetic leather and Cordura® band provides additional durability and comfort. The end result is “functional minimalism,” synonymous with Burton back-country design ethos. Additional design aesthetics include subtle Burton logos on the band and an engraved case back featuring Burton iconic logo.”

As first reported by HYPERBEAST in June, Fashion East with Maarten van der Horst collaborated with G-Shock to produce a very colorful GA110 that they offered for £250 GBP at G-Shock East. Martin van der Horst X G-Shock – Fashion East, sponsored by Topshop, who in turn sponsors new designers. It’s a little complicated, but it certainly works for Martin.

Fashion East X Sibling X G-Shock DW6900
Also, a Fashion East, this one with Sibling features a DW6900 watch that starts life in white and is enhanced with a soft green leafy print. It’s anyone’s guess whether it is meant for men or women – maybe one of you readers can tell me?Fashion East x Sibling x G-Shock collaboration watch 2012 dw6900

The highly popular MUDMAN model gets a blast of color in this GW-9300K-3JR “Love The Sea And The Earth” special edition which challanges to “Change the World Yourself.” In both color and function, the watch is very green – solar charging: “EARTHWATCH.” It has a carbon fiber reinforced band, the atomic timekeeping feature (automatic self setting)
and a digital compass to help us find our way in the murky waters or our time.

Another collab of “Love The Sea..” is the GWX-8900K-3JR – this one with the I.C.E.R.C.
designation is for the benefit of whales and dolphins conservation education; it’s a bit
complicated but at the heart of it – buy these watches so that the Flippers and Willys
of the seas have a better shot at non-extinction. Anyway, this particular watch sports moon/tide
graph, atomic timekeeping, solar charging and one thing I really like: a big button for
the back-light.
It is being offered as part of a set, his and hers (Baby-G pictured below) slightly mismatched
but collectible and reasonably priced.BGR-3004K_Baby-G i.c.e.r.c. collaboration watch whales dolphins love the sea and the earth earthwatch

BAPE offers up two new watches. One is a G-Shock collaboration, a model DW6900 in blue resin and white dial, the other, a BAPE branded “Field Watch” (not a G-Shock) that comes with two fabric bands (olive and blue).
Not much information has been shared with us about these products, but we thought you’d like to have the press release pictures to check out. Also by way of a sorta “back-fill,” a picture is included of the BAPE Camo DW5600 watch that they started to sell around the end of May. You have to hand it to these guys; they take the cheapest low-end models, minimally re-brand them and sell them for premium bucks. And, they always sell out fast! Unbelievagable.
