G-SHOCK Partners With Artist Eric Haze On New Limited-edition Watch For 35th Anniversary

DOVER, N.J: Today, in celebration of its forthcoming 35th anniversary, Casio G-SHOCK announces its latest collaboration with legendary artist and designer Eric Haze, this time on a limited-edition men's GA700 watch.

The GA700EH-1A features a brushstroke-inspired black and white color 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. Previously Haze, alongside G-SHOCK, crafted limited edition DW6900, G304, DW5600, GA100 and GA110 models, including models in celebration of G-SHOCK's 25th and 30th anniversaries.

Says Eric Haze on the collaboration, "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."

The GA700EH-1A features a super illuminator LED light, 3D bold black and white hands, and a five-year battery life. The watch also comes equipped with legendary G-SHOCK technology of 200M water resistance and shock resistance, as well as world time (in 31 time zones, 48 cities + UTC), 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.

The GA700EH-1A will retail for $140 beginning October 1st, 2017, and will be available for purchase at G-SHOCK retailers, including select Macy's, Zumiez, jewelers and fashion & lifestyle apparel retailers, as well as gshock.com and the G-SHOCK Soho Store.
