DOVER, NEW JERSEY, March 6, 2020 — Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces an all-new, limited-edition women’s timepiece in collaboration with MISCHIEF, the Seoul street fashion brand that is popular throughout Asia.

The band clasp also comes with the unique detail of “DEADLY COMBINATION" printed on the band, celebrating the coming together of G-SHOCK and MISCHIEF. To finish the look of the 90s-inspired timepiece, the updated GMAS arrives in custom packaging that features the MISCHIEF logo printed across the box. Additionally, the GMAS140MC-1A arrives in the classic GMAS circular model shape and boasts large side buttons, making it easy to use for women that are always on the go.

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up." www.gshock.com.
