Fall ’14 – Camo Fashion Sports G-Shock

g-shock_gls-8900cm sports watches blue red gray camouflage

G-Lide GLS-8900CM Camouflage G-Shock – Winter 2014
g-shock_gls-8900cm camo camouflage watch blue red grayNow comes another wave of camouflage patterned digital watches from G-Shock. These new colorways add to the wide selection of GLS-8900 products that are designed to appeal to sports fashion oriented buyers that can benefit from the dual stopwatch feature, tide data, and –20ºC low temperature resistance that these watches provide.
Other features, such as auto “super illuminator,” world time, full auto calendar, and two year battery life expectancy continue to keep the watch a strong value in todays market.
Now, it might occur to you that the features are a little discordant – in what situation would one need low temperature resistance and surfing (tide) information at the same time? But for that one time that such a combination would occur (I, for the life of me, have not yet come up with one), you would have to smile and think, “what amazing insight these guys have!” Continue reading

F.C.Real Bristol X G-Shock 2014

fcrb_x_g-shock_dw5600_3 f,c.r.b. real bristol 2014 collaboration special edition limitedFashion house, F.C.R.B., produces a diverse line of flamboyant soccer styled sportswear and accessories that are popular world-wide. Their collaboration with G-Shock recently yielded a limited edition DW5600 wristwatch that is rather conservative and stealthy compared to their normal fare. As is always the case, the watch does not introduce any new technology; its base is the standard DW5600 with F.C.R.B.s logo in the display, their distinctive camo branding on the packaging and the dial. MSRP is $189 and the watch evidently was soon sold out after its May 24, 2014 release. Continue reading

More Crazy Colors G-Shock 2014
In what is becoming a yearly summertime mini-event, Casio is treating us to another group of disparite hodge-podge colorways that live up to their moniker, Crazy Colors. As far as the technology in these timepieces, there is nothing new to report. Based on G8900, Ga100, and GA110 designs, these watches behind the colorful package are familiar stuff. Continue reading
