Casio America and FaZe Clan have partnered to create a new custom, limited-edition shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch dubbed the DW6900FAZE20-4CR.
The limited-edition watch features FaZe Clan’s red tiger camo print (an homage to the camo used in the early days by FaZe players for their in-game sniper rifles), with the case back featuring an engraving that commemorates FaZe Clan’s 10-year anniversary.
Being a G-Shock watch, the DW6900FAZE20-4CR offers all the same features of the line, particularly being shock and water-resistant. The watch, which will retail for $150 USD, will be available via FaZe Clan’s and Casio’s G-SHOCK websites beginning Nov. 27. It will also be available at Casio’s Soho, New Jersey store.
FaZe Clan is the latest esports organization to work with a major watch brand to create a custom limited-edition timepiece. In October, Astralis teamed up with Garmin to create a limited-edition smartwatch, and in June Fnatic collaborated with luxury brand Gucci to create a high-end watch.
