G-SHOCK celebrates its three successful years since its expansion to the Chinese market with a four pack of artistic watches. The brand collaborates with Singapore-based artist Jahan Loh for the direction and curation of an exclusive astrology-inspired collection. The designs of the timepieces boast a harmonious interplay of "Chinese celestial clouds [...] and referential animal motifs."

G-SHOCK skillfully planned the execution and the aesthetic of the artistic watches to specifically match the interests and fascinations of Shanghai citizens. Taking cues from the spiritual meaning of the vermillion phoenix, the white tiger, the azure dragon and the black turtle, the timepiece collaboration spikes interest by way of its roots in Chinese culture. In addition, the artistic watches come in an artisan-made and Loh-designed porcelain case that mixes traditional Chinese artwork and flying saucers.
