Japanese Pop Culture Watch – GA400

one piece g-shock ga400 anime japan culture watch
The youth of the Orient are as hip as it gets. With a blend of all the pop culture from around the world, the Japanese and South Koreans enjoy a richness of fashion, technology, and the arts that no previous generation has experienced. Then they make it their own and from their heritage they add legacy layers that take culture to even higher levels.. certainly beyond anything going on here in the States or Europe. It’s a delight to witness.

Buying G-Shock by the Pound

counterfeit fake g-shocks, sham scam, forgery bogus bootleg watches, wristwatch, phony gshock, replica g-shock, knock-off, illegal, phoney

Surfing the web, checking out what’s going on around the world can be so informative that I make sure at least once a day that I spend a few minutes perusing far-away web sites in the Orient, Africa, Europe, South America and even the wilds of New Jersey. And sometimes I make such startling discoveries that I am compelled to share them in one of my blogs with all my friends. Continue reading

g-shock_awg100_awgm100 awg-m100nv- watch new 2012

So, the cool thing about the AWG G-Shocks is they are not so popular that they are ever out of stock or out of the hands of the deep discounters. As much as each of the dozens of models of G-Shocks (in general) are unique; features, layout, colorways, etc., they are the same – at first glance, you can tell it’s a G-Shock but you won’t know which one it is. The AWGs look like the ani-digi lines in general, with their black plasticky thick bumpy roundness, stubby hands, and cheesy strap, and require closer scrutiny to discern that they are, indeed, not one of the trendy new GA110s, 120s, 150s or 200s. They are the pleather of watches. Continue reading

Recommended Budget Watches

stuhrling original swatch hamilton jazzmaster budget watches prestige shoestringersThere are times I am besieged with recommendation requests –
They usually go like this, “I have a budget of $____ and I want a watch that looks ____” (fill the $ blank with 200 or less and the ..that looks blank with good, expensive, classy, dressy, non-digital, non-plastic, etc.). Despite the fact that this blog mostly features G-Shock and other technically advanced watches, the on-going coverage here of affordable dress, utility and fashion products makes people think that there could be an answer here to their selection quandry. “What would you buy?” is often asked: that’s a compliment that I can’t let pass without response.
