Casio Celebrates Bruce Lee's 80th Birthday With Special Edition G-SHOCK

Post by Datsun240Z71 » February 24th 2020, 4:40am

The luxury arm of Casio’s G-SHOCK line, Mr-G reveals the MRG-G2000BL-9A, where BL stands for the legendary martial artist and action film star Bruce Lee, who would be celebrating his 80th birthday this year.

Firstly and most notably, the black and yellow color scheme used for the case and band is an obvious nod to the iconic tracksuit worn by Lee in the posthumously released film, Game of Death. What’s more is that the colors of yellow and red, which appear in the emblem of Jeet Kune Do, the martial arts philosophy founded by Lee, are also used for the indices, the MR-G logo and seconds hand.

That should be named the Ug-Lee, after Bruce’s little sister.

If any brand should be capitalizing on a Bruce Lee watch, it should be Timex. That’s what he wore.

It’s pretty ugly too.
