This piece was created to celebrate good people, a beautiful life, and significantly the 4th product release from In4mation for G-Shock. This video was shot primarily in NYC and Tokyo, showcasing some of the uniqueness that comes from traveling with friends.
The infamous New York fashion design duo, Dee & Ricky, have lent their trademark retro style to the latest edition to the G-Shock family, the GA110DR-1A. This limited edition chronograph perfectly pairs an extra-large analog/digital with the Dee & Ricky design sensibility seen on fashion runways and metropolitan sidewalks worldwide. Available in July 2010, the GA100DR-1A will retail for $130.00 USD at select retailers.
The GA110DR-1A uses rudimentary building blocks as a starting point, the design draws on primary colors to mimic the appearance of a toy watch. Like the duo’s signature Lego®-based designs, all the details pop against the black backdrop. A never seen G-Shock technique combines contrasting LCDs, gear-shaped hands and other parts to create a distinct multidimensional effect exclusive to the GA110DR-1A. To further customize the timepiece, the Dee & Ricky logo appears on the band and the engraved backcase features the Dee & Ricky caricature.
“Better watch us like this Dee & Ricky G-Shock,” said Dee and Ricky Jackson.
“G-Shock is pleased to collaborate with the fashion brand, Dee & Ricky,” said Shigenori Itoh, Vice President of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “As the first brand to customize the new G-Shock GA110 model, Dee & Ricky create a fusion of cutting edge G-Shock technology and fashion-forward style that will surely make this watch a collectors’ item.”
Remaining rooted in G-Shock technology, the Dee & Ricky X G-Shock is JIS Class Level I magnetic resistant to protect against the effects of magnetic fields often found in airport metal detectors. Additional GA110 features include shock resistance, 200M water resistance, Auto LED Light with Afterglow, 48 City World Time, 1/1000th Stopwatch with speed indicator, and 4 Daily Alarms and 1 Snooze Alarm, Auto Calendar and Hourly Time Signal.
Continuing its 30th Anniversary celebration, Stussy once again teams up with Casio to release a special edition G-Shock watch. The watch features a predominantly glossy black finish with a blue face. Available June 19th, 2010 at Stussy stores and select retailers.
Every G-Shock that you purchase does not have to be a loud color. Some times the illest things in our possessions move with silence. This watch could spell a secret weapon among the masses that choose to dress loud like Mardi Gras. This watch is the classic all black everything with a skull and cross bone embroidered on the bottom of the watch. I would definitely put this into my catelog. I think you should do the same.

Pepsi has collaborated with G-Shock and Zero Halliburton to create the “Time Traveler Pack,” a limited-edition run of G-Shock DW-6900 CC watches and Zero Halliburton polycarbonate rollers, gifted exclusively to creative impresarios—who travel the world in pursuit of dreams, and who always need to be on time. The watch is adorned with the new Pepsi logo and encased in an aluminum case, whereas the rollers are emblazoned with three statements of positivity: “Optimism,” “Joy,” and “Good.” This collaborative pack comes on the heels of Pepsi’s recent collaborations with Gourmet and Dee and Ricky, and was also facilitated by Team Epiphany in the spirit of Pepsi’s recently-launched “Refresh Project”. The initial delivery of this pack was seeded to a short list of artists, journalists, and musicians; a retail release for these goods will be announced in the short future.
