- Partnership will see watches from the G-SHOCK brand made available at 1915 by Seddiqi & Sons boutiques across the UAE
Renowned global watchmaker, CASIO continues to extend its presence in the UAE as it partners with 1915 by Seddiqi & Sons to bring the latest G-SHOCK lineup to the brand’s passionate fans in the UAE.
The partnership introduces a wide range of watches from CASIO’s popular G-SHOCK brand, including two exclusive editions available for purchase in 1915 by Seddiqi & Sons only, a one-stop destination for latest trends in watch fashion, jewellery pieces and accessories from internationally acclaimed brands and designers. These include:
- GM-5600CX-4 –The G-SHOCK edition red and gold G-SHOCK GM-5600 is the first of the Metal Covered series that features resin bands combined with stainless steel bezels that are forged, cut, and polished in ways that give each model its own distinctive finish. The hairline finish of the top surface of the GM-5600CX bezel and its matte red band reduce the overall lustre of this model.
- GM-6900CX-4 – Similar to the 5600series, the edition red and gold G-SHOCK GM-6900 watch’s resin bands combined with stainless steel bezels that are forged, cut, and polished, give it a distinctive finish. The 6900’s iconic front button, having surpassed its merely functional role in controlling the backlight, gets a metallic makeover. It is grounded in precise design, balancing the button guards and in a shape and angle that is easy to press.
Speaking on the partnership, Takashi Seimiya, Managing Director at Casio Middle East said, “We are delighted to partner with 1915 by Seddiqi & Sons. As we continue our expansion in the UAE, we are eager to reach as many fans of the brand as possible.
