With the influence of Japanese culture, G-SHOCK has launched a series of watches based on the traditional Daruma doll. It is known to be a Japanese good luck charm all over the world. The three models have linked the “Never give up” identity of G-SHOCK with the Daruma’s symbolism of perseverance and good luck.
Base models for this lineup are the original square-face DW-5600, the classic GA-100 digital-analog combination model, and the long-popular three-digital dial DW-6900. The DW-5600DA model features a Daruma red body with the image of a Daruma printed on its face. Turning on the watch’s backlight causes a Daruma face to float up on the display. The GA-100DA comes with a red face and black band, and the small hand of the dial at 12 o’clock also features a Daruma motif. The DW-6900DA model also has a red body. Its three digital dials are incorporated into a Daruma-like visage with bushy eyebrows and a beard. The band rings of all three models are printed with a Daruma image.
The watch comes with a special packaging designed by Toyko-based BlackEyePatch and a special card displaying the Daruma doll.
The Daruma Series will be launching at G-SHOCK PREMIUM, Marina Bay Sands and online on 1 January 2021.
