G-SHOCK Women Y’s collaboration model Watch GM-S5600YS-1DRAdd to Compare
The GM-S5600YS-1 is a collaboration between G-SHOCK, which continues its unending quest for the ultimate toughness, and Y’s, the first brand launched by world-renowned designer Yohji Yamamoto.
Marking the 50th anniversary of its 1972 launch this year, Y’s is a brand that crafts high-quality fashion with universal values and unique pattern-making techniques.
The GM-S5600YS-1 begins with the GM-S5600, the more compact version of the iconic octagonal G-SHOCK that features a metal bezel. This timepiece comes with an additional custom-made cloth band that can be swapped with the resin band to suit the mood and style of the day. For added functionality, the cloth band includes a cover to protect the watch face. The cover can be pulled back, folded through the buckle, and easily fastened in place with Velcro. The woven label listing model number and watch functions is sewn at the top edge of the cloth band as a graphic design element inspired by the woven label sewn into Y’s brand clothing. Like the Y’s line, this band is also carefully designed to be durable and comfortable to wear.
The all-black body carries on the Y’s style and is accented with metal components for a refined look. Each part of the timepiece is carefully polished with a different finish — the buckle and case with a honing finish; the bezel top with a hairline finish; and the side buttons and screws with a mirror finish. The dial and case back feature the Y’s logo.
Y’s is designer Yohji Yamamoto’s very first brand, and to this day it bears his vision and philosophy. The concept at the root of the brand is women wearing men’s clothing, and Y’s creates pieces for independent women who value their own timeless vision. Each piece of functional, refined everyday wear in the brand’s unique clothing category is shaped by universal values and unique pattern-making techniques. The brand values the importance of “the space between the garment and the body” to emphasize airiness, volume, and balance, employing careful cutting and meticulous selection of materials to achieve a refined silhouette. The Atelier team that carries on the Yamamoto philosophy continues to present Y’s unique brand identity: functional, elegant, prêt-à-porter daily wear.
