Forgotten But Not Gone

G-Shock g9000-8v g9000mx-4 g9000mx-8 mudman white red orange
These Mudman watches were first introduced in 2008 and some were sold for a while at the usual big box stores.. But, now they are no longer in the USA G-Shock catalog. They are, however, part of the current Asian line-up and still show up on eBay at very reasonable prices. These alternative colorways are as fresh as any that Casio offers here (& now) and the dual chronographs are a very useful feature

G-Shock Sneak Peek

G-Shock Blue ray army green GA110FC parre GB-6900
UPDATE: BETTER PICTURES HAVE BEEN POSTED – See November 1, 2011 Post – New G-Shocks – click here
We apologize for the horrible graphics in this post. Casio leaks information about new items in numerous ways and we who report on the products are constantly left ‘best guessing” where the next morsel will appear. This time the announcement comes in a tightly limited distribution Japanese Casio catalog, only one of which so far has been scanned and uploaded. For now, this is what we have to work with, but as soon as more is available, it will be published here.

Bapex Type 3 – A Bathing Ape Watch

Bapex type 3 - rolex daytona copy
It’s a Rolex Daytona layout with a distinctive Bape logo and slogan. The engine is Japanese (or so some other bloggers say) and the price is around $575 (44,100 yen). Bape’s watches are collectible limited editions and usually go up in value. The picture gallery includes the Rolex watches that Bape replicated. Also in the gallery are some pictures of other recent Bape releases
UPDATE: October 2011 – A Submariner layout BAPE called the Type 1, to be released in December 2011 has been added to the gallery along with an actual gold Rolex. This blogger is curious what Rolex thinks about these watches – I mean, it’s not like it’s a Rolex X Bape collab..
