G-Shock released a limited edition watch for NS50, but you’ll be hard-pressed trying to get one

CASIO G-SHOCK's Facebook page
Yet another brand has jumped on the NS50 bandwagon. This time, it's Casio's G-Shock with its popular GX-56BB watch sporting an army-inspired design. Officially released at nine G-Factory outlets across Singapore on Friday morning, the watch features the classic GX-56BB face with a "pixelised camouflage print" strap. NS50 is the term used to refer to Singapore's 50th year of National Service. Casio announced the release of the limited edition watch on its Facebook page on Thursday morning, but did not say how much it would cost or how many pieces were produced. A staff at the G-Factory Premium store in Marina Bay Sands told Business Insider the watch went on sale at 10am at a retail price of $269. And they are selling out fast. When we called the G-Factory Premium store at around 3:20pm, we were told that there were "very few" pieces left. Around the same time, the store at Ion Orchard had already run out of the NS50 watch completely, while the Bugis branch only had one left. Good news for Casio, but many G-Shock fans are probably going to be disappointed. By 5pm, Business Insider counted 14 opportunistic sellers who had put up the watch for re-sale on online marketplace Carousell with asking prices ranging from $280 to $2,699.99.
