The distinctive design of the GA110 model is a long-running winner. It spins off abundant new colorways with extraordinary frequency while voracious G-Shock buyers keep scooping them up in all their glorious variety. Continue reading
In a fashion-wise and fitting move, Casio is releasing an all orange (band and case around black dials with white indicia) mixed set of slightly vintage style watches called the Rescue Orange Series. Continue reading
Once again Stussy has teamed up with G-Shock to produce a collaboration DW5600 watch product – this time with a checkerboard theme and branding on the dial and upscale round tin package with the Stussy logo in the backlight. Why they are using Van’s signature checkerboard is beyond me – seems a little pushy, but I don’t know what is on their minds these days. MSRP for the wristwatch is $350. and is still available from their stores.
Another special edition, a DW56w00 in mostly white with black indicia and readout was issued to commemorate the 2014 FIFA World Cup Championship. MSRP for the watch is $250. A June release, exclusively in their own stores, and at this writing is still available.
As a whole it is named #NeverBlendIn and it’s constituent parts are a scavenger hunt in Dallas, artists, Brent Rollins (including his art opening at G-Shock Soho) and Mason McFee (graphics artist and designerfor the scavenger hunt and new brand ambassador), introduction of the stealth and camo watches (below), on-line Profiles as part of printed G-Shock Zine, Premium Goods, a trip for two prize to the US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach and there’s more.

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.
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
