We were struck with excitement when we saw G-Shock launch their first fully steel CasiOak earlier this year. As watch enthusiasts, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity. We wanted to create our signature playful CasiOak on the steel version.
The lovely color combination caught our attention. Because of its simple profile, it was very inviting to be customized. It offers us the freedom to do whatever we desire.
After our lengthy in-house R&D, we are pleased to announce the meticulously hand-painted CasiOak Phantasm Collection – The Art Piece on The Wrist.
IFLW G-Shock CasiOak Phantasm Watches
Our two new limited edition steel CasiOaks have been inspired by the colors, shapes and patterns of an optical art classic – The Kaleidoscope. Phantasm, as the name suggests, is our chaotic and fragmented representation of those instruments of optical art.
Each dial is a moment of chaos and disorder, just like the initial moment when you peer down the kaleidoscope before you turn, it creates a beautiful pattern of vibrant colors.
Our new Creative Director (previously known as The Dial Artist) uses the classic pointillism effect on the dial. This effect is not new to us since we have used it on our previous CasiOaks. However, the pointillism effect on our new CasiOaks creates larger dots.
Offsetting the abstract dial, we have created a new pearlized finish for our hour markers. These now truly sparkle and dance in the light, helping to frame the chaos and create order. A dazzling display of artistic Phantasm pops from their blue and bronze metal picture frames.
CasiOak Bronze Phantasm
The beautiful Bronze Phantasm has a subtle matt finish applied to the bezel and the entire case. A smoky, semi-transparent grey strap complemented the watch.
CasiOak Blue Phantasm
As for the Blue Phantasm, it strikes the perfect combination of polished and brushed surfaces. The center case is highly polished, while the case side and the bezel are brushed. A sporty yet elegant blue strap complements the watch.
