Here's your first look—plus some handy travel advice from Geller himself.
Robert Geller has been to Japan 40 times over the last decade. It makes sense, considering the NYC-based designer's namesake clothing line is produced there. And it's why, when it came time for him to create the very first G-Steel collaboration with Casio, he looked to the land of the rising sun for inspiration for his limited-edition G-Shock x Robert Geller timepiece.
Based on multiple trips to Tokyo to work on his men's fashion collections, Geller's input adds his contemporary sense of style to "the toughest watch of all time." Tokyo's magic hour—the time just before sunrise—plays a very significant role in his G-Steel collaboration, Geller explains. "My favorite time in Tokyo is walking through the city in the middle of the night when its impossible to sleep because of the jet-lag. This idea of walking late at night when it starts to quiet down a little bit: You still have the smells from the Japanese barbecue and the trees and the neon lights are still on, but it's got this magical, almost serene feeling."
