Whether it’s a collection of skate decks or eccentric adidas footwear, Keith Haring’s artworks have inspired several collaborations time and time again. Now, Casio G-SHOCK is the latest brand that’s set to utilize the artist’s signature pop art characters, printing its DW-5600 watch with the colorful figures.

The upcoming release includes two editions of the DW-5600 model that have been copyrighted by the Keith Haring Foundation and licensed by Artestar in New York. One version of the timepiece is offered in a bright red colorway, while Haring’s lively drawings are etched in white in their familiar chalk-like form. On the other style, yellow, pink and blue images are popped against a crisp white base for a vibrant contrast. A digital face and silver-tone hardware finish off the details on both watches.

The Keith Haring x G-SHOCK DW-5600 officially releases on November 2 in limited quantities. It will be available at select retailers only in the U.S.

Recently, the watchmaker commemorated the 25th anniversary of its BABY-G watch with a Pikachu collaboration.
