Raffle Sales for only 35 Watches each Worldwide

NIGO®, a notable fashion designer from Japan, has partnered with Kikuo Ibe, one of the creators of G-SHOCK.
Now, the special models resulting from the collaboration of these two legends are here.

DEVELOPMENT

The sensibilities of two men who defined an era, now in tangible form.

Kikuo Ibe, one of the developers behind G-SHOCK watches, and NIGO®, a fashion designer who has had a hand in many collaborative models in the past, are working together as a powerful team. To achieve their vision of a design that incorporates expressions that have never before been seen, the pair poured out ideas on everything from the exterior coating to the design of parts and the packaging. A new breath of life can be seen in these two models, which incorporate bold, new designs and the gratitude of achieving a history of 35 years.

About NIGO®

NIGO® first took the world by storm with his own fashion brand in the 1990s, which catapulted him into a position as a street culture pioneer. NIGO® made a clean break from the brand in 2011, and has since branched out into various fields. In addition to producing designs for his own brand, HUMAN MADE®, he has served as creative director for a number of projects with global companies including Uniqlo’s UT Collection, iQOS by Philip Morris, YOHO! (China’s leading youth culture magazine), and a collaborative label with CyberAgent, an Internet TV and ad company. At the same time, NIGO® continues to wield considerable influence in the music world; the artists, sounds, and visuals he has produced have received numerous awards. The multitalented NIGO®’s reach extends beyond fashion, including being a producer and DJ for the hip hop group HONEST BOYZ®, designing album artwork and merchandise for the girl group Happiness, producing a collaborative event with the SEVEN label directed by NAOTO of Sandaime J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE, and producing the Curry Up restaurant.

About Kikuo Ibe

Born in 1952, Kikuo Ibe earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the Faculty of Science and Technology of Sophia University in 1976, before joining Casio. Initially assigned to the Design Department, Ibe was involved in digital watch construction development. In 1981, he proposed a rugged watch that would not break even if dropped and began developing a shock-resistant construction. After two years of hard work, the first G-SHOCK was released. Ibe later oversaw product planning for the MR-G series of G-SHOCK watches with a metal exterior and the OCEANUS line of full metal watches equipped with radio-controlled, solar-powered systems. While continuing to be active in watch development, Ibe also participates in G-SHOCK events around the world as the father of G-SHOCK, working to expand the global reach of the brand.
