The timepiece gets a sleek black colorway with cool blue accents on the dial and buckle, as well as blue engravings of the G-Shock and Blue Note logos. 

A video starring Blue Note artists, including tenor saxophonist Charles Lloyd, drummer Kendrick Scott and producer/DJ Lophiile, accompanied the launch of the arty bauble. 

Along with an undeniably smooth aesthetic appeal that's fit for a bandleader, the GSTB100BNR-1A model is equipped with plenty of tech, including solar-powered charging capabilities, Neo-Brite luminous hands and a super LED light.

A low-energy Bluetooth function allows users to pair the watch with their smartphone to change time zones, monitor battery levels, set alarms and more.
