Casio G-Shock and US skatewear brand Huf have collaborated on a ultra-tough watch capable of withstanding the thrills and spills of skateboarding.

The limited edition GD400HUF-1 arrives in May and is built around the skate-inspired GD400, with its bold metal face protector, extra tough lugs and LED illumination.

The all-black design features Huf’s signature ‘cracked concrete’ Quake texture on the rubber strap, 48-city world time zones, five daily alarms, countdown timer, stopwatch and 200m water resistance.

Keith Hufnagel, Huf founder, said: "I used to skate for G-SHOCK back in the day and we always carried their watches at our original HUF shops in San Francisco and Los Angeles, so I was very happy when the opportunity arose to work together on a project that would speak to both our brands through one collaborative piece.”
