— elevate your game
with an NBA pro
The second signature model designed under the supervision of NBA pro Rui Hachimura, continuing a relationship that began in 2019.
This model is based on the GM-110 with its metal-clad, shock-resistant construction, and accented with the national colours of Benin, Hachimura’s ancestral home. The copper IP conveys the kind of strength and radiance that can win the world.
The metal bezel features copper IP. The material’s strength and lustre communicate Hachimura’s presence as he performs on the world’s highest stage. The face is accented in yellow, green, and red, the national colours of Hachimura’s ancestral home, Benin. The bridge plate has been treated with vapour deposition for a metallic finish.
Hachimura’s signature “Black Samurai” logo, based on a design that his mother drew on a paper napkin, is engraved in several places. The symbol 八 (hachi in Japanese, meaning “eight”) represents both his name and jersey number. The design incorporates a Japanese sword that crosses the 八 hachi symbol, resulting in an additional “H” motif for “Hachimura.”
Unique band design
The model comes with two bands: one in classic black that accentuates the case colour and a second in brown with a unique original design. A slide lever lets you swap out the bands with ease. The brown band features a cloth strap keeper in the national colours of Benin, and an all-over printed rendition of a traditional West African kente-cloth motif produced via a special printing process. With black accents signifying freedom, the characteristic geometric pattern represents Hachimura and his global image.
A kente-cloth motif adorns the sleeve and box, in colour and black-and-white respectively, paired with the striking Black Samurai logo. Design inspired by the sporty, fashionable Hachimura.
High-luminance LED lights up the watch face with high-intensity light, maintaining watch readability in the dark.
