The lunar new year is almost upon us and that means we will soon be heading into the year of the Rat.

To celebrate the occasion, G-Shock has teamed up with local artist Jahan Loh to create a special limited edition G-Shock watch.

The full name of this limited edition watch is the GA-2100-4CNYJAHA, but's let just call it the Jahan Loh x G-Shock GA-2100 for the sake of clarity.

It's based on G-Shock's new GA-2100 watch, which features a tough resin case that's reinforced with carbon fibre and a distinctive octagonal bezel that is reminiscent of the Royal Oak from Audemars Piguet.

Here, the watch is rendered entirely in red. The case, bezel, dial, strap, and even hands, indices, and LCD display are all red.

To tie in with the lunar new year (Chinese New Year), the strap features the Chinese text for fortune "福".

Additionally, the pattern on the text is said to have been inspired by the Chinese text "寿" which means longevity.

These are two of the most auspicious words and symbols of the Lunar New Year.

Designer Loh adds, "The calligraphy of good fortune and pattern of longevity is composed of the character of 2 rats and the longevity pattern."

The watch will also come in a special red limited edition case featuring Loh's artwork.

The Casio G-Shock x Jahan Loh GA2100-4CNYJAHA will go on sale today (3 January 2020) at all G-Shock boutiques (except IMM) and will be priced at S$239.
