G-Shock gets ready to release their next collaboration watch. They got together with Dutch artist Parra on the DW-5600 watch. The DW-5600PR-4ER watch comes in a contrasting 4 color-way design – baby blue, baby pink, red and orange; a palette reflecting the minimal style adopted throughout the majority of Parra’s design work.

Remaining rooted in G-Shock technology, the Parra X G-shock retains the original features of the DW-5600. The watch will be released mid November 2011 and will go for 100 Pounds.
