G-Shock gets the Eric Haze touch
For one and a half decades, both G-Shock as well as world-renowned graphic artist Eric Haze have come together to work on numerous projects, where among them include a quartet of highly coveted timepieces.In order to parade the fact that G-Shock has been around for 30 years in the market already, both G-Shock and Eric Haze have joined forces yet again in order to come up with a unique G-Shock timepiece which is a testament to the close partnership that exists between Haze and G-Shock.
Eric is an old hand at designing G-Shock timepieces over the years, and he also had the honor to work on G-Shock’s 25th Anniversary logo. Five years down the road, Eric also has the honor and distinct privilege to do so yet again for the 30th Anniversary of G-Shock. The logo itself is engraved on the case back of the GA110EH-8A commemorative watch, where Eric has used reinvigorating colors from previous Haze models, ensuring that the 30th Anniversary watch will come with an iridescent gray finish accompanied by red accents, so that his signature star icon logo will be able to pop off of the watchband.
This particular multi-colored design treatment will continue throughout on the dial with elements of red, black and white, further enhancing the distinct 3-dimensional effect of the layered dial.
Eric Haze said, “This collaboration speaks highly of the modern marriage of design and product, which treats premium collectable accessories as part of everyday fashion and iconography. The 30th Anniversary marks a quantum leap for Casio since the 25th Anniversary five years ago, with G-Shock’s ever-growing impact on the watch design and fashion worlds. My projects with G-Shock over the years have played a big part in my own history too, so this celebration has special meaning for me personally and professionally.”
The GA110EH-8A is one tough cookie to live up to its testament, boasting shock and magnetic resistance, 200M water resistance, auto LED light, world time (29TZ/48Citites+UTC), 4 daily alarms with 1 snooze, 1/1000th second stopwatch (100hr.) with speed indicator , countdown timer, and 12/24 hour formats. It will retail for $150 a pop if you are interested.
