Casio G-Shock has introduced its collaboration model with world-renowned Jazz label, Blue Note Records.
Created to honor Blue Note’s 80th anniversary, the latest model is an updated take on the G-Steel line of men’s watches.
It comes in a sleek black colorway with blue accents on the dial, and buckle, as well as an IP case back, button and band keeper.
With the typical G-Steel look, the GSTB100BNR comes with custom limited-edition packaging.
Don Was, president of Blue Note Records said: “Blue Note and G-Shock have a history of refinement and shifting culture.”
Adding: “We felt G-SHOCK was the right partner to help us celebrate our 80th anniversary while we usher in a new era at the label. It’s about bringing our audiences together and giving them something they can love, whether they’re a Jazz aficionado or a hip-hop lover.”
The timepiece has also been equipped with several of G-Shock’s most sought-after features including solar-powered charging capabilities, a super LED light and Neo-Brite luminous hands.
It also features Bluetooth low energy technology to pair with smart phones via the G-Shock Connected App.
The limited-edition piece will retail for $420 and will be available for purchase at the beginning of March from select jewelers, fashion boutiques, the G-SHOCK Soho Store and gshock.com.
