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.

G-Shock GD400
With a nod toward skateboarders and other super-dangerous sport enthusiasts, Casio has introduced a colorful new line of extra durable timepieces that enjoy the G-Shock toughness we’ve come to expect with added protective face bars. They have been selling some Baby-Gs with similar hardware for some time now. The look is retro 90’s and this blog expects this model to sell well far into the future. Continue reading

Aviation Series G-Shock Watches

ga1000 g-shock aviation compass 2014
Casio has hit on a winning formula and they are running with it. All analog dial (you know, sweeping hands, subdials, and, except for the newest model GA1000 and a couple of the older, discontinued models, no digital numeric readouts), round case, thick, chunky, and with lots of nifty features, the Aviation Series (aka, Sky Cockpit, Gravity Defyer, Gravity Master) watches appeal to more prospective buyers than you’d expect. Amazon is doing a brisk business with a few of these products. Continue reading

The Frogman (what a great name for a watch, eh?), since its introduction (at that time the DW-6300, as the most sophisticated of the G-Shock line and the most expensive) over twenty years ago; now, several iterations removed continues to be touted as the premium diving watch – perhaps even the quintessential divers watch.

Casio Never Stops Tinkering

bluetooth_g-shock_gb5600b gb6900b next generationIt was a year later and already Casio had renewed its Bluetooth smart watch products to a “second generation” with increased compatibility and useful functions. They bet heavily on certain standards becoming mainstream: Bluetooth 4.0, Android KitKat, third party app development and popularity of features such as music control and clock setting.

They are colorways that are combinations of hue, shade, saturation, and finish that have not been seen before and they are a legacy concept (often labeled as Hip-Hop, American, and Street fashion) from the Casio think tank. Continue reading

Garish, Metallic G-Shocks ..Whatever GA200SH and G8900SH


ga-200sh, ga200sh, g-shock watches, 2013

Well, yes, it is a little confusing. What has been released in Japan (January 2013) as Metallic Colors is being labeled in the USA market as Garish Colors. Adding to the mystery of their series naming, Casio released a set they called Garish Black, back in May 2012 that were hardly what we’d consider garish and are not at all cosmetically related to this new series. But what’s in a name, anyway? Continue reading

Well, if the Rising Red watches were too colorful or youthful or plastic looking, then maybe this new series of conservative blue on black wrist watches, due out in Japan on January 25, 2013 will be more to your taste. In the mix are two Bluetooth (one each 5600 and 6900), two atomic and solar (a MudMan and a RiseMan), a good ol’ GA110 (actually GA113) and a new model, the GA303. Continue reading

Series: AWG-100 and AWG-M100……… G-SHOCK WATCH PICTURE GALLERY

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

The designers went all the way back to the beginning of G-Shock history, to Casio’s introduction of the first truly shock and water resistant products back in the mid 80’s. Externally modeled after the original (DW5000C), the new GW-M5610-1B is the thoroughly-modern-molly of entry level multi-function digital watches with it’s movements’ happy innovative Tough Solar charging, Atomic Multiband-6 self-time-setting, perpetual calendar, and automatic EL backlighting.
