G-SHOCK, a favorite choice among the top surfers and extreme sports athletes around the world, is proud to announce its first Kanoa Igarashi signature model. Igarashi is a Japanese professional surfer who participates in the world-class WCT Tour of the World Surf League.
The base model is the GLX-5600, which features one of the thinnest, compact, best fits of the entire G-SHOCK Series. This model comes equipped with a digital Tide Graph, which is a must-have function for surfers. The watch is made of popular semi-transparent resin that creates a simple and cool design.
The name Kanoa in the form of Igarashi's signature appears on the face, band ring, backlight and back case, which identifies this as a truly special and personalized model.
