Casio G-Shock has released another watch designed in collaboration with a famous street artist, this time with Eric Haze, one of New York’s original pioneers of hip-hop graphic design, street wear, and artist driven limited edition products.
The limited edition men’s GA700EH-1A features a brushstroke-inspired black and white colour scheme with 2017 printed on the band loop, signature star on the tip of the band and Eric Haze’s logo engraved on the back of the case.
The GA700EH-1A marks the seventh union of longtime partners G-Shock and Eric Haze on special edition collaborations.
“This most recent design represents a style of brush painting I have been developing seriously over the last 5 years. The beauty of the relationship Casio and I have developed for over 20 years now, is that they trust and allow me to follow a new direction for every project, which keeps the work fresh for both myself and the audience. I am very proud of our work together and excited to reveal more ahead at G-Shock’s 35th anniversary in November,” says Mr Haze.
The GA700EH-1A features a super illuminator LED light, 3D bold black and white hands, and a five-year battery life. It displays world time in 31 time zones, four daily alarms and one snooze alarm, 1/100th second stopwatch, 1/10th countdown timer, 12/24 hour formats and a hand retract function – all in a 53.4mm case.
It goes on sale for around £100 on October 1.
