Casio to release Charles Darwin Foundation collaboration G-Shock Watches

The watches feature designs inspired by creatures of the Galápagos Islands and are made with bio-based resin for less environmental impact.

Casio has announced the release of new additions its G-Shock family.

The three new GW-B5600CD watches are the brand’s latest collaboration with the Charles Darwin Foundation, an organization that engages in environmental conservation activities in the Galápagos Islands.

The latest collaboration model marks the second partnership between G-Shock and the foundation, following the first in 1999.

The new GW-B5600CD shock-resistant watches feature designs incorporating silhouettes of creatures that live in the Galápagos Islands, along with the rich natural environments where they live.

While based on the GW-B5600, a timepiece equipped with radio wave reception and Tough Solar charging capabilities, the new GW-B5600CD watches feature a bezel and band made with bio-based resin produced using 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; a Darwin’s finch amid the foliage of a Scalesia forest for the GW-B5600CD-1A3; and a Galápagos giant tortoise in a rocky location for the GW-B5600CD-9.

Silhouettes of each featured creature also appear on the LCD when the backlight is illuminated.

The Charles Darwin Foundation logo is engraved on the case back, and a Spanish-language statement meaning “I support Galápagos conservation” is printed on the band.

A portion of the proceeds will be used to support the Charles Darwin Foundation’s conservation activities.
