G-SHOCK LAUNCHES THE NEW IN4MATION TIMEPIECE
G-Shock Merges Functionality with Surf Spirit
DOVER, NJ, May 09, 2011 — G-Shock and In4mation join forces once again for the fifth installment of their collaborative timepiece, releasing the limited edition GLX6900XA-9. As part of the G-LIDE series, the GLX6900XA-9 is specifically designed to fuse the island spirit of the Hawaii-based street-wear brand while and G-Shock’s brand ethos of toughness. The Jamaican colors of red, gold and green are prominent in the GLX6900XA-9 along with a subtle integration of the In4mation logo on the shiny gold dial and resin band, and a custom engraved In4mation logo on the case back. Keeping true to the island heritage, the GLX6900XA-9 features features 200m water resistance and tide/moon graphs, making it the perfect accessory for any surf enthusiast. “In4mation is excited to continue their ongoing relationship with G-Shock by introducing a new collaborative model for Summer 2011,” said Creative Director, Rhandy Tambio. “For our fifth watch, we introduce a new colorway revolving around the island lifestyle and reggae culture. Reggae is a big influence worldwide especially in Hawaii. It carries a striving positive movement. The colors hold a strong meaning with Red standing for the blood we shed, gold reflecting the richness of the Green land we all live upon, trying to share and spread one common goal of living in harmony, One love. Also the title of a legendary reggae song to unite the people.” “Our partnership with In4mation has always been very successful,” said Shigenori Itoh, CEO of Casio America. “We share the same interest and lifestyle and we want to continue this type of ongoing relationship with like-minded brands such as In4mation.”
