G-Shock And HUF Team-Up For New Collaborative Timepiece
Latest news from the world of collaborations, and if you love G-Shocks and skateboards, then you many want to pay close attention.
Builder of tough watches, G-Shock have teamed up with skater brand HUF for a new collaborative timepiece. The new GA-2100HUF-5A model commemorates the 20th anniversary of the founding of professional skater Keith Hufnagel’s HUF brand.
We can see the synergy between this unique partnership. After all, both G-SHOCK and HUF have unwavering faith in the street scene. Based on the popular octagon bezel GA-2100, the new watch takes inspiration from sneaker culture.
The new model combines different materials, such as resin and metal band loops, and a cloth band. Reflecting the originality unique to HUF, the dial is coloured in lime green and orange, which are the characteristic colours of the brand. On the back cover, wearers can find an engraving of HUF’s 20th-Anniversary logo. The packaging of the watch also recalls the cityscape of San Francisco.
In terms of design the GA-2100HUF-5A features patented shock resistant construction and a water resistance of 200m. It also features world time functionality with 31 time zones (48 cities and coordinated universal time) with daylight savings. Timekeeping functions include a stopwatch, countdown timer, five alarms, and double LED lights and Super Illuminator.
The G-Shock x HUF GA-2100HUF-5A model will be exclusively available online from 9th September 2022 for CASIO ID members. It will be available across all G-Shock stores starting from 16th September 2022.
