The G-Shock GM-110RH-1A is the second limited edition collaboration with NBA basketball player Rui Hachimura. The watch has a stainless steel bezel with a copper-colored ion plating. The yellow, green, and red accents on the face and band keeper represent the flag colors of Benin, the home country of Hachimura’s father.
The watch includes a textured black resin band and a second brown resin band with a traditional West African kente-cloth pattern. The bands are equipped with quick-release levers for easy swapping. Hachimura’s “Black Samurai” personal logo (derived from the Japanese character for “8”) is engraved on the case back and stainless steel band keeper. Born in Japan, Hachimura played for the Japanese national team in the 2020 Summer Olympics and will continue his NBA career as a Washington Wizard this fall.
In Japan, the GM-110RH-1AJR has a tax-included price of 47,300 yen and will be released on September 10, 2021. The GM-110RH-1A will also be released throughout Asia. The previous collaboration with Rui Hachimura, the GST-B100RH-1A, was also released in the U.S. and Europe.
Update: G-Shock U.S. is expected to release the GM110RH-1A for $420. The GM-110RH-1AER will also be released in Europe and the U.K. (£349).
