In the early aughts, the Hip Hop jewelry craze was crazy. Every luxury watch under the sun was being studded, flooded, iced out, and busted down. But Pharrell and NIGO were the first to bridge the utilitarian, athletic, digital practicality of a G-Shock with the opulence and decadence of Hip Hop jewelry. Pharrell and NIGO both regularly brought G-Shocks to NYC-based jeweler-to-the-streets Jacob Arabo (AKA Jacob & Co.) to bust down and bling out. This particular Jacob & Co. creation is based on an extremely limited G-Shock X BAPE 35th anniversary DW-6935 model and is embellished with 18K white gold and 16.5 carats of white baguette diamonds. A white diamond-flooded Billionaire Boys Club Astronaut logo is embedded into the back, which is interchangeable with the original 35th anniversary back, also included in this lot. Only 35 pieces of the original version of this watch were released, making this NIGO X Jacob version nearly unobtainable.
