Academy Award-winning director and Knicks superfan Spike Lee still wears Casio G-Shock watches, and it seems fair to categorize the 62-year-old as a lifelong fan of the brand. Lee partnered with G-Shock during the 25th Anniversary in 2008 for the release of the screw-back DW-5000SL-1, which was modeled after the original G-Shock DW-5000C-1A and had his signature imprinted on the case back.
One of the G-Shocks he wears is a DW-6900SC-4, a 2013 model featuring a unique color combination with an orange bezel, blue band, green-tinted LCD display, and metallic star-studded face. The colorful watch matches the Knicks team colors and Lee’s fan attire. The DW-6900 celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, with special new releases like the stainless steel GM-6900 series.
Lee also wears an orange GA-150A-4A, an unusual 2012 model. The black GA-150-1AJF and white GA-150-7AJF are actually still actively available models in Japan.
There may not be many sightings of Spike Lee wearing his G-Shocks in the near future, as he recently had an argument with the Knicks organization and said he will be sitting out the rest of the season. (We firmly believe Lee’s side of the story, but won’t get into it here, other than to say that owner James Dolan and the Knicks have a history of being horrible and hated lately.)
Spike Lee recently directed the war drama “Da 5 Bloods,” which will debut on Netflix sometime this year, and is also working on the graphic novel adaptation “Prince of Cats,” which is a hip-hop retelling of Romeo and Juliet set in a 1980s Brooklyn.
