DOVER, NEW JERSEY, APRIL 25, 2017 – Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces the brand's watch collaboration with legendary New York street artist, STASH.
The limited edition model boasts a black on black print of aerosol caps on the band and case over which a blue splash pattern was applied, designed exclusively for G-SHOCK by STASH. The GA100ST-2A will also come with a one-of-a-kind spray can packaging featuring STASH's unique logo.
An avid G-SHOCK fan since the late 1980s, STASH will breathe new life into his signature graffiti design through this first-ever partnership with G-SHOCK. "The community embraced G-SHOCK way early on because of the style, the ruggedness," said STASH. "They started in the early 80’s so they have a history and a legacy that has always resonated deeply with me."
Available on May 4th, 2017, the watch will be exclusively sold in CONCEPTS, Concepts, a premium lifestyle boutique heralded for their collaborative products and curation with brands like Nike, adidas, New Balance and Canada Goose.
“CONCEPTS is proud to provide our long-time friend and collaborator, STASH with a blank canvas to present his newest endeavor with G-SHOCK," said Deon Point, Creative Director for Concepts. "STASH and G-SHOCK are both heritage staples in our industry and will continue to create important products for years to come.”
