You know CASIO G-Shock? Of course you know. Now, do you know Robert Geller? The German-born American fashion designer? Yeah, that dude who had previously partnered on five consecutive runway presentations at New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Well, if you are fan of both brands, or simply a G-Shock collector, you’d be glad that the two brands have come together to create a limited edition G-Shock watch under the G-STEEL line, said to be “inspired by the urban elements in Tokyo.” If you don’t already know, Geller has this thing for Japanese culture and have had spent the last ten years producing his label’s ready-to-wear collection in Japan.

Most traditional timepieces suffer from the same problem and that’s time accuracy. Some watchmakers get around this by designing watches that syncs with either GPS or atomic clock, both of which Casio has explored, but now the Japanese watchmaker has gotten smarter with its new EDIFICE timepieces, EQB501. Not because it uses Bluetooth SMART, but because that short range wireless connectivity module there, together with Casio’s Mobile Link Technology, allows the watch to connect to a smartphone at a push of a button. Continue reading CASIO’S NEW EDIFICE Timepieces Offer Accurate Time Thru Your Smartphone
Casio G-Shock watches are built rugged and never known to be exorbitantly priced. However, years ago, the Japanese watchmaker ventured into the premium timepiece market with MR-G series, with current models commanding anything from 2-3K but today, the brand celebrates two decades of MR-G by upping its premium status to a whole new level with the G-SHOCK MR-G Gold Hammer Tone Hybrid GPS Watch (MRGG1000HG-9A). Continue reading Gold HammerTone Is The Most Opulent G-SHOCK Yet In Both Looks And Price
We are witnessing a what could be a collaboration addiction between Casio G-SHOCK and UK-based pacifist military design label Maharishi. Yes. That Maharishi, again. Not that we are tired of the wonderful collaboration, but our wallets certainly won’t be too please because, not surprisingly, the resulting product, the G-SHOCK x Maharishi GDG1000MH-1A, is pretty tantalizing and this means, it beckons us to dish out exorbitant sum for it, well, as far as G-SHOCK goes, that is. And how much are we talking about? $850. Ouch. Continue reading G-SHOCK Gets The Maharishi Treatment For The Fourth Time
We love how Casio gave G-SHOCK watches the metal treatment and this second generation only serves to reinforce the idea that G-SHOCK can look good in steel and you need not to look silly with a G-SHOCK timepiece when in suit/shirt and pants. Announced for Spring, this second wave consists of four watches all featuring G-SHOCK trademark toughness, along with unique layered guard structure of metal and resin on the bezel and layered dials for the 3D look. Of the four watches, two models are paired to solid resin band (GST210B-1A and GST210B-4A) and two sports resin bands with printed metal crystal pattern (GST200CP-2A and GST200CP-9A).

So far, smartwatches are mainly designed for urban warriors. You know, people who are unlikely to bash through bushes and things like that. You can’t expect Apple Watch to go white water rafting, can you? Absolutely not. The price itself is a warning for you not to let go beyond the comfort the urbanized environment. Thus, there’s exist a void and today, Casio stepped in and fill up that void with Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch. It is a smartwatch designed specifically for adventurers and outdoorsmen, powered by the easy-to-use and intuitive Android Wear. Continue reading Thanks To Casio, The World Will Get Its First Rugged Smartwatch Soon
As much as we love G-SHOCK watches, we have to admit they are hardly dress-fashionable. Can you imagine James Bond pairing his tuxedo with a pair of G-SHOCK Mud? Of course, not. It would be a great fashion disaster to say the least. This is an area where the Casio G-SHOCK G-STEEL aims to address. How? With the stainless steel G-SHOCK timepieces, of course. Now, the thing is, steel isn’t exactly shock-absorbing by nature, but the Japanese watchmaker managed to derive a process, a so-called layered bezel structure, that fuses shock-absorbing resin with steel to create the steel-wrapped G-SHOCK worthy for sophisticated grown ups. Continue reading Steel G-SHOCK is Handsome and Tough, and Its Totally James Bond-Worthy

We have always have a thing for outdoor watches, though from the belly each of us here has, it is fairly obvious that outdoor activities are the last thing we do these days. But that’s not the point. The point is, Casio has a new outdoor timepiece that would appeal to serious outdoor enthusiasts (and the past us) and that timepiece is the PRO TREK PRW-3500. If you have the love for extreme sports, such as surfing (not the Internet, btw), diving, kayaking and rafting, this is the watch of choice. Besides looking the part of an outdoor watch, this new PRO TREK can now dive to 200 meters (656 feet) deep, allowing you to take you exploration deeper into the ocean.
