G-Shock Seven Lucky Gods Series (Shichi-Fuku-Jin)

G-Shock Seven Lucky Gods Shichi-Fuku-Jin Collection: G-7900SLG-4 BGD-560SLG-4 DW-5600SLG-7 DW-6900SLG-1

Casio announced an unexpected limited edition series to be released in Japan and Asia: The G-Shock Seven Lucky Gods Series (or Shichi-Fuku-Jin Series). Inspired by the Seven Gods of Fortune originating from Indian, Chinese, and Japanese religion and mythology, the series consists of seven watches (including one Baby-G model) that will be rolled out over six months from October 2018 to March 2019. The watches and artwork were designed by painter Toshikazu Nozaka. The theme and release schedule of this collection are reminiscent of Jahan Loh’s Celestial Guardian Series that was released in China, Singapore, and Thailand in the first half of 2018.

The watches feature exclusive designs inspired by traditional Japanese art. In addition to unique bezels, bands, and faces, the watches also feature customized strap keepers and EL backlights. The EL backlight of each model depicts a stylized letter or hyphen that spells out “G-SHOCK” when the collection is complete. Each watch comes in custom packaging with a motif based on its corresponding god.

The first watch to be released in October 2018 is the G-7900SLG-4 based on Ebisu. Other watches coming soon include the BGD-560SLG-4 (Benzaiten), DW-5600SLG-7 (Hotei), and DW-6900SLG-1 (Bishamonten). The last three models have also been revealed and appear to be a GX-56 model (Daikokuten), a DW-5700 model (Jurōjin), and a GBD-800 model (Fukurokujyu).
