Based on the GB-5600 model series with Bluetooth wireless connectivity, the durable timepiece is capable of notification on incoming emails, text messages, as well as phone calls via cellphone. This means you never need to “fish out” your phone unless necessary. Though simple in appearance, the GB-5600B-K8JF features 100 cities/35 time zones world time, stopwatch, 5 alarms with snooze, even a “vibration” function to discreetly alert you of incoming messages. Shock and waterproof up to 20 ATM (200 Meter/656 Feet), the Casio G-Shock GB-5600B-K8JF also includes a whimsical decoration by the artist Kevin Lyons. Part of Lyons’ recent retrospective in Japan, the watch comes with a special “googly eyes” graphic packaging in addition to its matte grey decor.
“I am super psyched to be working with G-SHOCK again. Some time last year, Arkitip came to me with the opportunity to create a watch that would illustrate how tough G-Shock is. I immediately thought of concrete and concrete blocks. I later paired that idea with the Rudeboy concepts of Concrete Jungle and Tougher Than Tough, both being titles of classic ska recordings describing hard-core urban life in Kingston, Jamaica. Add to this my iconic pyramid Monster characters made out of concrete blocks, and the result is a strange little project that now consists of a G-SHOCK GB-5600B-K8JF with Bluetooth technology, some really cool packaging, and a large-format hand-drawn newspaper that delves deeper into this crazy combination of concrete meets toughness meets Rudeboy meets pyramids UPTOWN.” – Kevin Lyons
“Concrete Jungle” is a new Arkitip Chronicle filmed for the release of the watch. Based on the above mentioned idea of the Rudeboy concepts of Concrete Jungle and Tougher Than Tough, the video expresses those ideals through repetitive imagery.

We are proud to premier the third part of Drew Bachrach’s video American Sadhu.
The American Sadhu series is a collaboration between filmmaker Drew Bachrach and actor/clothing designer Tracy Powell. In each episode Tracy’s “Traveler” character explores remote and unknown holy locations around Los Angeles. This wandering mystic’s adventures and rituals are a riff of new age pseudo-spiritualism and postmodern folklore.
Drew Bachrach is a Detroit bred artist/filmmaker currently living and working in Culver City, CA. During the week Drew produces and edits video content for a wide range of clients while his weekends are spent in he studio working on large-scale acrylic paintings of empty backyard swimming pools.
