Dee & Ricky collaborate on Another Winner
A new video clip from Watch-Tanaka gives us an excellent view of this exceptionally colorful high-fashion watch. If this blogs (record-breaking high) viewer traffic count is any indication of how popular this watch will become, I’m fairly certain Casio will sell them as fast and as many as can be produced.

The next couple videos are of watches that have been released in Japan. If the Dee & Ricky is not your cup of cheese, maybe one of these will plunk your magic twanger..

stussy jason g001 g-shock
Stussy adds another special edition G-Shock to it’s “drop-n-roll” (instant, unannounced, come and gone) catalog; a retro Jason model in a retro Tokyo-urban-chic drab colorway. Despite our general dislike of the Jason design, we must, nevertheless, acknowledge it’s value, both as an investment item and as an addition to the bizarre street fashion paradigm that is the heart of Stussy. Similar to Bathing Ape, DGK, KR3W, Zoo York, et. al., they can invent a weird new look, call it dope (or retro) and magically, it is. Of course you don’t mind spending a lot of money on it, too. It is reported elsewhere that the price of the watch will be over $200 and the commemorative companion white cotton tee shirts will be selling for $67 (knowing, of course, that if this watch follows the trend set by previous editions, the value will double in a couple years). “Now, don’t panic, folks – no need to rush the gates – please just form an orderly line to the right”

silas x g-shock dw5600 limited editionSilas patches together a private label watch to sell at ZOZOTOWN for 15,700 Yen, to be released just in time for Christmas. As Silas has imprinted on the band, (for the fashion enlightened but not for the collectibles market,) the watch (IMHO) is a “Waste of Time.” The “good ole” DW5600 was introduced in 1996 and has been in continuous production ever since with some slight improvements along the way – the standard production model retails in the range of $65. This is the second collaborative offering from Silas with G-Shock – the first was even more unremarkable (a shiny black, logo imprinted, DW5600). Oh, well..

    WOW, very useful blog! Kudos to the creator… I can’t stop reading. I found it helpful and informative. I love wrist watches and after seeing this I ordered one, the DEE AND RICKY’s G-Shock GA-111DR-7AJR @ http://bit.ly/gshockdeeandricky. Is this released only in Japan for now? I ordered there and will ship to me soon… can’t wait to get it.
