Casio G-SHOCK has teamed up with Honda Aircraft Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Honda, for the new GWR-B1000HJ.
The watch is part of G-SHOCK’s GRAVITYMASTER series of aviation concept watches, inspired by the HondaJet Elite. It borrows design cues from the actual jet, like its clean white interiors. An aircraft-shaped motif is placed just below the 12’ o clock indicator of the dial, surrounded by a shiny light blue day calendar. The button tubes at 2 and 4 o’clock have been mirror-polished like the hood of the HondaJet, while the center crown is kept black with a knurled finish to reflect the plane’s engine fan blades.
All of these details are strewn together by an impact-resistant carbon fiber frame for extra durability. As a final touch, the strap is embellished with “TRIPLE G RESIST” and “HondaJet” branding, complemented by a contrasting silver-toned belt.
