HODINKEE x John Mayer Debut Special Edition G-SHOCK

HODINKEE and John Mayer teamed up with Casio on a very cool version of the G-SHOCK ref. 6900, originally launched in 1995.

The handsome timepiece design is inspired by the Casiotone SK-5 sampling keyboard that Mayer played as a child and is clad with a triple-graph dial and an array of handy functions like a stopwatch, countdown timer, and multi-function alarm. "When Casio approached me about the possibility of working together on a G-SHOCK, it actually timed out really well,” says Mayer. “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. Casio keyboards came to mind as much as the watches did. Then I remembered how important the Casiotone SK-5 was in my life, and it got exciting really fast. It's the perfect bridge between my double life as a musician and a watch enthusiast.”
