Q : When was the first time you wanted a watch and what made you want one?
A : At a very young age, I saw one time a G-SHOCK somehow, from there, I pushed my parents to have one. A year after I had a yellow one for Christmas when I was around 12 years old. I was very happy and I spent two years wearing it every day.
Q : Do you have a vision for the next G-SHOCK if you have the opportunity to collaborate again? If so, what is it?
A : Something more technical, more sports-oriented than lifestyle.
Q : Do you compare G-SHOCK to anything? What is it and why?
A : To a race car maybe and I don’t know why really.
