Latest Partnership Creates the New GA-700 Model
The GA-700EH-1AER marks the seventh union of longtime partners G-SHOCK and Eric Haze on special edition collaborations. Previously Haze, alongside G-SHOCK, crafted limited edition DW-6900, G-304, DW-5600, GA-100 and GA-110 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."

CASIO's shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe's dream of 'creating a watch that never breaks'. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as 'the toughest watch of all time'. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with CASIO innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe's mantra "never, never give up".
