Casio G-SHOCK and Charles Darwin Foundation Unveil Stunning Collaboration: Introducing the GW-B5600CD Series Watches


Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced on November 14 that the G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches has added some new models to its collection. The company’s latest watches, the GW-B5600CD models, result from a recent collaboration between the brand and the Charles Darwin Foundation, which works to protect the natural environment in the Galapagos Islands.

The Charles Darwin Foundation charitable organisation operates globally to preserve the Galapagos Islands’ pristine natural environment. The organisation is involved in various activities, including assessing the marine and terrestrial species and ecosystems of the Galápagos Islands and advocating efforts to conserve the islands’ natural environment. After forming their first cooperation in 1999, G-SHOCK and the Charles Darwin Foundation continued their work by releasing their most recent collaborative model.

The new shock-resistant GW-B5600CD watches include designs incorporating the shapes of animals that live on the Galapagos Islands and the diverse natural surroundings that can be found on those islands. While based on the GW-B5600, a timepiece equipped with radio wave reception and Tough Solar charging capabilities, the new GW-B5600CD timepieces have a bezel and band constructed of bio-based resin generated utilising renewable organic resources.

Each of the three watches features a face with a unique design motif: a hammerhead shark in an ocean environment for the GW-B5600CD-1A2, Darwin’s finch amid the foliage of a Scalesia forest, one of its preferred habitats, for the GW-B5600CD-1A3; and a Galápagos giant tortoise in a rocky location, one of its preferred habitats, for the GW-B5600CD-9. When the backlight of the LCD screen is turned on, silhouettes of each featured creature also show on the screen.

On the band of the watch is printed a phrase in Spanish that translates roughly to “I support Galápagos conservation,” and the Charles Darwin Foundation emblem is etched on the back of the case. The Charles Darwin Foundation’s efforts to preserve the natural world will get financial assistance from selling some items.
