The Rubik’s Cube is one of the most recognizable and iconic toys to ever grace this planet and definitely something we all enjoyed tinkering around with at some point. So you bet your butt we’re excited about Casio’s new G-Shock watch, which is inspired by the beloved cube.

It also sports two interchangeable bezels—with both a black and white option to choose from–along with a mineral glass lens and a battery that’ll last you approximately three years before needing to be replaced.

It rocks Casio’s classic durable design, including the Carbon Core Guard that keeps the watch’s internal bits safe from vibrations and impacts. The slim design of its case and stylish octagonal bezel will make the watch pop against any outfits you wear, too.
