CASIO G-Shock Celebrates 25 Years Of Baby-G With A Special Baby-G Model

This year, CASIO G-Shock celebrates 25 years of Baby-G. Yes, already. Time sure the hell flies. When Baby-G was first launched in 1994, it aimed to create a more feminine version of the G-Shock with all the toughness of G-Shock, but in a smaller, slimmer form. It was a hit. Even as a hot-blooded young man, I was drawn to it. I grabbed my first (and last) pair sometime in 1996 as a gift to myself for getting my driving license (hey, we all need an excuse or two to buy, right?). Baby-G was also the watch that made me realize that small watches ain’t for me, hence the last for me. Continue reading CASIO G-Shock Celebrates 25 Years Of Baby-G With A Special Baby-G Model

CASIO Debuts G-Shock With 1983 Case in Full Metal Paired With Resin Band

Metal is a symbol of toughness. Surprisingly though, Casio tough watch line, G-Shock, did not employ metal in its classic square face G-Shock wrist watches until of late. The Casio GMWB5000-1 All-Metal G-Shock is the latest addition Metal G-Shock to be included in the watchmaker’s catalog and it is the first in the collection to combine a metal bezel and resin band. The result is, as you can see, looking very promising. G-Shock is no stranger to colorful watches. Gold accents aren’t new either, but metal in silver or gold is fairly new to the Japanese watchmaker. Continue reading CASIO Debuts G-Shock With 1983 Case in Full Metal Paired With Resin Band

An Italian Company Wants To Put A Synthesizer On Your Wrist For $540

Just when we thought pocket-size is the smallest a synthesizer can get, one Italian company called Audioweld (who has watchmaking background, btw) takes synthesizer to the next level of small.

The keys allow you to create tunes via a companion app on both Android and iOS. Continue reading An Italian Company Wants To Put A Synthesizer On Your Wrist For $540

Luxury Watch Sharing Is Now A Thing And It Costs As Low As $4.40 A Day

I own a Bell & Ross BR-92 which cost me nearly 6K. Many years on, the watch is pretty much worthless. It depreciates like mad. I had offer for it at 1.5K last year and man, that sucks big time. Anyways, it now relegates its life on a watch winder. Luxury watches, other than true vintages or Rolex, are pretty much shit investment. Period. So why even buy one? Well, you don’t – if you are in Singapore because a startup called Acquired Time is here to help. Continue reading Luxury Watch Sharing Is Now A Thing And It Costs As Low As $4.40 A Day

G-Shock x Transformers Comes With A Transformable Optimus Watch Holder

Transformers are, according to TFWiki.net, a species of sentient, living robotic beings. In other words, they are are living things, just like you and me. This brings us to this question: as sentient beings, do they do ever need to read time, or does the onboard computer already have that taken care of? I guess we will never know and a collaboration with G-Shock and toy maker of Transformers, Takara Tomy, only serves to deepen this mystery. Continue reading G-Shock x Transformers Comes With A Transformable Optimus Watch Holder

We Just Can’t Take Our Eyes Off The Bright Red Accented G-Shock GA700

It has been a while since we look at Casio G-Shock watches. There are just way too many watches being turn out, but this one here had my full attention because, bright red accents. This new debut from Casio is the G-Shock GA700BR-1A men’s watch. As you can see, the bright tangy red accents beckon for everyone’s attention. The bright red accents can be found on the face and bezel, and extends to the back of the rubber strap (referred to as “two-tone strap”). The latter is something you hardly notice if you wear it, but it is a nice touch nonetheless. Continue reading We Just Can’t Take Our Eyes Off The Bright Red Accented G-Shock GA700
