Canadian bag and accessories brand Herschel Supply has launched its
first-ever watch, the Herschel G-Lide, in partnership with Japanese
electronics supply company, Casio G-SHOCK.
According to an announcement from the brand, Herschel reimagined
G-SHOCK’s classic GLX5600 model, using “elements from the traditional
colors and utility through a military-inspired design.”
In the announcement, Herschel Supply shares that the digital watch is
made using a durable matte green resin case and band, along with a yellow
face with mineral glass, which is “highlighted by auto electroluminescent
backlight technology.” The watch includes a tide graph, stopwatch,
countdown timer, multi-function alarms, and more.
“Here at Casio G-SHOCK, we strive to be innovative and produce
high-quality products, and by partnering with Herschel Supply, we’re
excited that we can offer a fine-detailed timeless watch for the
well-traveled,” said David Johnson, the vice president of Casio’s Timepiece
Jamie Cormack, the co-founder of Herschel Supply, shared that the
brand’s first watch was made with the “dedicated bunch on dawn patrol surf
sessions” in mind.
The limited-edition Herschel G-Lide is available for 150 USD and can be
purchased on both Herschel Supply’s and G-SHOCK’s websites, as well as
select retailers around the world.
