    You may not have heard of him but Louie Vito is a household name in his native North America. Ohio-born Louie is a four-time US Snowboarding Grand Prix winner, holds five X Games medals. In 2010, represented the US at the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games and hopes to do the same at Sochi 2014.

    As a pro athlete at the head of his game, Vito has attracted sponsorship from Nike to Red Bull and of course, G-SHOCK. As part of the G-SHOCK Team we gave Louie our new Winter G-Lide GLS8900 to make his own its been hugely popular in the States and now were bringing it to the UK.

    Louies model is ice cool, with his preference for colour-blocking, keeping the watch a bold and frosty looking blue, silver and black. The watch is equipped with extreme low temperature resistance an LCD that fight fade-out making it the perfect model for Louie and any winter mountain sports enthusiast.

    Just to be sure its his, Louies LV signature is engraved on the case back and appears on band and dial.

    Just 60 pieces will be on sale in the UK, exclusively from G-Shock East, Brick Lane and our CASIO London flagship store in Covent Garden for 110.

    The price is quite good... when I saw ''only 60 pieces'' I thought the price will be insane.

    I don't know the fella and I'm not into snowboarding, but it's a nice watch for those who do

    I have to say, I'm a little disappointed that the digits are not light blue like they were in the stock pics:

    Thanks, hoping it doesn't turn out like the New Era piece. It was such a pain to get a hold of.
