    Picture Photo Report of the Acht & ACE Sneakers and G-Shock event

    Last night I attended the Acht & Ace (sponsors) Sneaker and G-Shock event in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This G-Shock art impression was painted on the watch window of Acht (eight in Dutch) store:



    Through the "display" the visitor got a good sight of the limited edition sneakers and G-Shocks by two US artists (or rappers?):



    The ACE team was of course present. From left to right: Esther and Tamara:



    Also photographed by Dimer, also ACE of course:



    Because I am not quite the G-Shock nor a sneaker expert, I brought a friend with me, who definitely is one. Here's him on the left talking to Robert-Jan Broer from Fratellowatches:



    Below, from left to right: Tamara and Farid, both from ACE:



    While I was taking photos, Dale and Dimer joined them:



    Can you tell they LOVE G-Shocks?

    Bas Boersma (Casio Europe) was also present and he showed me the new G-Shock featuring bluetooth (iPhone 4s or 5 compatible). Cool App, cool features!



    The watch (see below) will be available in a couple of different colors:



    Bas Boersma (Casio EU) shows the App to Dimer (ACE):



    And now, a VERY special guest (and moderator of this great forum), the one and ONLY (drum rolls) Sjors !!!!



    Sjors was exhibiting several unique, rare G-Shocks from his own collection:



    The G-Shocks were presented in these little plastic boxes:



    Check the white one, you will see it back further on in this report....





    Can you name both of these guys? They are both cruising this forum on a (very) frequent basis:



    And can you name the G-Shock below?:





    From left to right: Bernard Werk (Watching Magazine) and Robert-Jan Broer (Fratellowatches):



    I bet we will see some pictures by Sjors in this forum any time soon







    And now some sneakers!



    Didn't know there were SO many enthusiasts, and SO many limited editions. Here are some LE Jordans:



    Alon, CEO of ACE was wearing some nice Nike sneakers, here he is together with Robert-Jan:





    Back to G-Shocks, gentlemen!



    30 Anniversary Mudmans!

    Remember I asked you to remember the white G-Shock? My friend bought it!





    I'll be honest with you all. I went to the event without wearing a G-Shock. I didn't own one (sorry!), but that changed the very minute I got my eyes on this beauty:



    I'm wearing it while I type

    From left to right, the owner of the Acht sneaker store, and Alon, CEO of ACE:



    Many sneaker and G-Shock fans were at the party. Here's an overview:





    Just before my friend and I left, Bas and he took a panorama picture on their iPhone 5:



    Sjors saw it was good:



    Thanks to Acht and ACE for a great evening. Amazing show, great people.

    Thanks for the great report Ernie. I have a lot of photo's, but haven't got time to do the editing and arranging. I'm pretty tired of the almost 5 hours driving yesterday, the party and also working at school. I should start tomorrow morning.

    The guy I am talking to is our good friend Dreski, who was wearing his 30th Anniversary Haze \(^0^)/
    I think most members will recognize the G-Shock x The Hundreds collaboration model (^.-)
    He has posted his review on the
    Dutch Horloge Forum (in Dutch!).

    Cheers,

    Sjors


    PS: Nice Maharishi model. Be sure to read my article on 50 Gs about this one. It is really special. The promotion video was projected several times by the VJ.

    PPS: Nice cameo (pic with me and my collection)

    take your time, and I look forward to yours!

    Very cool pics! I'll post mine ASAP. I think I can speak for everyone if I say we had a blast! But what else can you expect at a party with friends, G-Shocks, Sneakers, Mojitos and good music?

    Special thanks to Sjors for having a small piece of his collection at the party.

    Hi Dimer,

    I have nothing to add. It was just perfect, like a mini Shock The World party. Totally worth the almost 5 hour driving to Amsterdam and Back. Also had great time with Bas (B-Shock) with one of the best burgers I ever had in a typical dutch (dark brown) café and I am very pleased I finally met Dreski in person.

    Great report Ernie and it was fun to meet you, Sjors, Dimer and Dale. Welcome to the G-Shock club with your first Mudman. A great start for a first buy.

    Thanks for taking the time to write such a fantastic report Ernie. It really gave me a good flavour of the atmosphere there. Wish I could have attended.

    I am really liking Ace as a sponsor of this forum, they seem to have a genuine sense of enthusiasm for the brand.

    It's unfortunate I wasn't able to fly over while I'm in München. Next time! Looking great Sjors!
