To celebrate G-SHOCK’s 35th anniversary CASIO has just released the limited-edition GA700 watch in partnership with legendary artist and designer Eric Haze. The GA-700EH-1AER features a black and white color scheme with the year “2017” imprinted on the strap of the bracelet, the signature star on the end of the strap and the Eric Haze logo engraved on the back of the Case.
The GA-700EH-1AER marks the seventh partnership between G-SHOCK and Eric Haze in special edition collaborations. Previously, Haze, alongside G-SHOCK, created the DW6900, G304, DW5600, GA100 and GA110 limited edition models, including G-SHOCK 25th and 30th anniversary celebration templates.
Eric Haze says of the collaboration, “This latest design represents a style of brush painting that I have developed over the last five years. The beauty of the relationship that CASIO and I have developed over 20 years is that they trust and allow me to follow in a new direction in each project, which keeps the work fresh for both me and the public. I am very proud of our work together. “
The GA-700EH-1AER features a super illuminator LED light, black and white 3D pointers and a battery life of five years. The watch also comes equipped with legendary 200M G-SHOCK technology for water resistance and shock resistance, as well as world time (in 31 time zones, 48 cities + UTC), four daily alarms and a snooze alarm, 1 / 100 seconds, countdown timer, 12/24 hour formats and a pointer retract function – all in a 53.4 mm box.

The CASIO shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch stands for ruggedness, born of Mr. Ibe’s dream to “create a watch that never breaks.” Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested until finally, in 1983, the first, now iconic G-SHOCK, hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as “the most robust watch of all time” . Each watch comprises 7 elements; resistance to electric shock, resistance to gravity, resistance to low temperatures, resistance to vibrations, resistance to water, resistance to shock and robustness. The watch is packed with innovations and CASIO technologies to keep it from being hit directly; includes internal components protected with urethane and modules suspended inside the clock structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve under the motto of Mr. Ibe “never, never give up”.
