High time for another flashback into the ‘good ol days’ and dig out a classic G-Shock shape – this time we’ve uncovered the G-Shock Giez GS-1200. It’s 2008, New York pollie Eliot Spitzer’s proclivity for dick pics and high end pros is exposed; Manchester United win the Champions League; and Barack Obama becomes the first president to possess any semblance of swag since Bill Clinton. Taking the ‘triple S’ modus operandi, not Triple G, of forging a look that is ‘Simple, Smart and Sophisticated’, the geniuses at Casio definitely nailed the goal with the Giez. Sporting a polished metal case and a dapper colour palette of silver, black and red; this thing looks as comfortable under a suit as it does on a skater.
