Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today the release of the GST-B100RH, a new

Hachimura, who has had a successful first professional season in the 
professional basketball league in the US, resonates with G-SHOCK, a brand that, 
like him, comes from Japan and never fails to take on new challenges on the 
global stage. Hachimura had this to say regarding his signature watch, "Casio 
has come up with an amazing watch that perfectly captures the design I 
envisioned. I think it goes well with various clothing styles. It was also cool 
to see my special "Black Samurai logo" design on the watch, as it is an 
important symbol to me." Casio and Hachimura signed a global partnership 
agreement in November 2019. Hachimura, who has loved G-SHOCK watches since he 
was a student, becomes the first basketball player to ever receive a signature 
collaboration with Casio.

The new GST-B100RH is a signature model whose design was overseen by Hachimura. 
The watch is based on the analog chronograph GST-B100, part of the G-STEEL 
series that features a bezel made from a combination of different materials and 
a large dial indicator. This cool watch features a black base color highlighted 
by edgy gold ion planting (IP) applied to the metal parts. The watch 
incorporates a hachi (8 in Japanese) logo representing both his last name and 
jersey number. Additional bold red accents are applied to the index mark and 
button pipe at the 8 o'clock position, and to the dial indicator. This 
signature model is distinguished by the Hachimura logo, also widely known as 
the "Black Samurai logo," on the case back, strap keeper, and special 
packaging.
