A Limited Special Edition Collaborative Timepiece with Legendary Surfboard Manufacturer
In conjunction with the year-long celebration of the brand’s 30th Anniversary, Casio G-Shock is proud to announce its most recent collaborative timepiece with legendary surfboard manufacturer, Channel Islands. As Casio G-Shock is known for its tough and durable timepieces, and with Al Merrick’s brand of Channel Islands Surfboards constantly recognized as producing the highest quality performance surfboards, it is only natural that the two heritage brands partner together to create the new GLX150CI-1.
The new GLX150CI-1 comes equipped with many functions and features that make it at home in the water. Like all G-Shocks, the new Channel Islands collaboration timepiece is shock and water resistant (up to 200 Meters). Other features include Tidal/Moon graph, Auto-Super LED Illuminator w/ Flash Alert, 2 Multi-function Alarms & 1 SNZ, 1/100th Sec. Stopwatch w/ Auto-Start, Countdown Timer, 12/24 HR formats, and mute functions.
When asked his thoughts regarding the epic partnership between the two nostalgic brands, Al Merrick, creator of Channel Islands, explained, “The collaboration between G-Shock and Channel Islands makes sense to me as both brands are leaders in the active sports arena. Many of our athletes, such as Yadin Nicol, are also sponsored by G-Shock. And with last year’s successful partnership of our parent company, Burton, with Casio G-Shock, we were very confident in producing a watch that holds true to what both G-Shock and Channel Islands has come to be known for.”
The new GLX150CI-1 will be available beginning August 2013. The Limited Edition collaborative timepiece will be available for purchase through City Beach stores.
