Casio has released the DW-5600EH Eric Haze signature G-SHOCK watch, named after the well-known graphic artist. This new watch is designed to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the G-Shock series of shock-resistant watches, which was celebrated in May 2008.
Eric Haze is a graphic artist active in a variety of fields, including hip hop. The collaboration between Haze and G-Shock began in 1999, and this signature watch will be the third Eric Haze model to be released. The G-Shock’s 25th anniversary logo was designed by Eric Haze, a demonstration of the close association between G-Shock and Haze.
The new DW-5600EH Eric Haze signature model is based on the DW-5600E, which in turn inherited the square shape of the first G-Shock model, the DW-5000C. The Eric Haze signature is on the band and also appears with the EL backlight.
The basic motif of the watch is a black-and-white monotone, with red accents for the Eric Haze signatures and the watch face. The 25th anniversary logo, designed by Eric Haze himself, is engraved on the back of the case. The watch comes in a specially designed original box.
Eric Haze was born in New York City, 1961. For over 30 years, he has been a leader in the worlds of art, graphic and product design. In the 70’s, using the name, “HAZE,” he established his own influential styles of graffiti art.
During the 80’s, Haze became one of the first artists to help visually communicate Hip Hop culture to the world via his graphic and logo design. To this day, Haze continues to produce a variety of work and shows at exhibitions worldwide.
The collaborative relationship between G-SHOCK and Haze began in 1999, with Haze designing his first signature model, and has continued to progress for nearly a decade.
