An evening with G-Shock 5-7PM Saturday June 23rd

While we originally planned for this store event to be an opportunity for G-Shock fans to meet G-Shock inventor Kikuo Ibe, his visit has had to be postponed due to health reasons. (Read more on that here) Rather than cancel the event, we are continuing with a G-Shock event that will show off some of G-Shock's wildly popular Baselworld releases for the first time. On hand will be G-Shock sales manager Clark Nelson who will make his second appearance at Topper. This time, we will be showcasing prototypes of many of the new G-Shock models that will be on display for the first time ever on the West Coast.

Clark will have prototypes of the new "Full Metal" Square with reverse display and resin strap (GMWB5000-1). He will also show the new MR-G MRG-G2000HA "TETSU-TSUBA", the new MT-G Connected MTGB1000-1A, as well as some of the new models with carbon fiber bezels that just made their debut at Couture Time in Las Vegas a few weeks ago.

We will also feature all three of the resin model 35th anniversary pieces, (Frogman, square and round) as well as a large collection of 2018 models. While Mr. Ibe will not be in store, many of the watches on display and available for purchase at the event will be eligible for a free watch signed by Mr. Ibe. These free watches have an expected delivery of July. To see a list of eligible watches, click here https://shop.topperjewelers.com/collections/kikuo-ibe-promotion.

We plan to give the food and drink a Japanese flair with Japanese whiskey and draft beer on hand, as well as sushi! RSVP isn't required but it is appreciated as it better helps us prepare. If you'd like to come, please email info@topperjewelers.com. We hope you can join in this evening of celebration of G-Shock. We look forward to P.O. toasting to the day that Mr. Ibe is able to join us at Topper in person.
