Casio kicks off the 40th anniversary of G-Shock with a new limited edition model, the GMWB5000EH-1, and a commemorative logo in collaboration with renowned artist and designer, Eric Haze. The G-Shock x Eric Haze partnership will be familiar for long-term fans of the brand, as the two have collaborated for more than 20 years, creating celebratory timepieces and milestone anniversary logos, including the 25th, 30th, 35th, and now 40th Anniversary logos and identity for G-Shock.
For the 40th anniversary collaboration, the GMWB5000EH-1 comes to life as a full metal timepiece rooted in the iconic DW5000C, the very first G-Shock model. This nod to the past, modernizes the classic silhouette with stainless steel construction, urban design sensibilities, and functionality of G-Shock in 2023, celebrating the rich and extensive history of the brand.
Decorated with Eric Haze’s trademark icon pattern, consisting of his stars, arrows, and crowns, the unique metal band is crafted using IP coating and laser etch processing. The stainless-steel band has a gloss black IP finish, which is stippled with dot-pattern laser engraving. The combination of large, medium and small dots creates shading and a distinctive graphic design across the entire band.
Wearers will notice G-Shock’s attention to detail with the 40th-anniversary logo mark on the screw-lock case back cover, finished in a DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating, as well as HAZE’s infamous logo illuminating the back of the face display. To further commemorate this momentous occasion, special packaging was designed by Eric Haze, making the GMWB5000EH-1 a must-have for watch aficionados and collectors.
