Seven-time Grammy winner John Mayer has teamed up with HODINKEE for his first limited-edition Casio digital watch.
Inspired by the colours of the Casiotone SK-5 sampling keyboard that he played as a kid growing up in Fairfield, Connecticut, the Casio G-SHOCK Ref. 6900 series was one of the brand’s bestsellers. The series was first launched in 1995.
“When Casio approached me about the possibility of working together on a G-SHOCK, it actually timed out really well. I had already been pretty deep into wearing the ‘Mudmaster’ models, and something felt cosmically right about a G-SHOCK being the first watch collab I’ve ever done. I also love the price point. I’m not sure people would have expected a US$180 watch with my name on it, but I think it’s really playful and inviting,” Mayer shared.
The limited-edition Casio G-SHOCK Ref. 6900 by John Mayer is now available online and at select retailers.
