Merging G-Shock Technology with In4mation Surf Style
Honolulu, Hi, April 29, 2010 — G-Shock and In4mation team up for a fourth installment collaboration watch. After three highly sought after collectibles, G-Shock and the Hawaiian-based boardsport brand have fused the latest G-Shock toughness and technology with the In4mation alternative design concept in the GLX6900X-2.
Irreverently clad in sleek gray with yellow and red accents, the GLX6900X-2 remains rooted in In4mation’s surf heritage. Harmonizing with the surfer lifestyle, the G-Shock In4mation chronograph features 200M water resistance, low temperature resistance, tide graph and moon data graph for the ultimate in tracking high and low tides. Even the EL Backlight reflects In4mation’s legacy with a red shaka sign, the definitive symbol of aloha and Hawaiian culture.
“In4mation is proud to introduce its Spring/Summer 2010 set of watches with new G-Shock and Baby-G models,” said Creative Director, Rhandy Tambio. “In4mation has taken a new approach with its fourth design and focused on a look for everyday use with a subtle gray styling and contrasting hints throughout both watches. In4mation continues to establish its attention to detail and elevate its approach to design with Casio’s popular brands.”
“Casio G-Shock is thrilled to collaborate with In4mation. The previous collaboration models have created quite a buzz and been in such high demand. We look forward to continued success,” said Shigenori Itoh, Vice President of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “Combining In4mation’s distinct style with the latest edition to the G-Shock Family, the GLX6900-2, is easily a must have for design conscious consumers.”
This sleek limited edition digital watch features the In4mation logo on the band and custom engraved on the case back. Complete with the high gloss finish, the G-Shock x In4mation watch also features Full Auto EL Backlight with afterglow, Flash Alert, Flashes with buzzer, 48-City World Time, 4 Multi-Function Alarms and 1 Snooze, Countdown Timer, 1/100th Sec Stopwatch and 12/24Hr.
