If you love everything basketball, then you may dig this new G-Shock timepiece, the Rui Hachimura x G-Shock GST-B100RH Watch. As the product name implies, the GST-B100RH is a collaboration model created with professional basketball player Rui Hachimura, based on the GST-B100. It is the first collab model since the signing of a partnership agreement last November (2019).
With the GST-B100RH, Hachimura also became the first basketball player to ever receive a signature collaboration with Casio. This watch is not just putting Hachimura on it and called it a day. The pro basketball player also oversaw the design.
Highlights include a black base color highlighted by edgy gold ion planting (IP) applied to the metal parts, hachi (8 in Japanese) logo representing Hachimura’s last name and jersey number, bold red accents on index mark, button pipe at 8 o’clock position and dial indicator, and finally, Hachimura logo, aka “Black Samurai logo”, can be found on the case back, strap stay, and on the special black and gold packaging.
Rui Hachimura x G-Shock GST-B100RH Watch is available starting August 8, in Japan, priced at 68,200 yen (tax included, approximately US$640).
