Casio G-Shock x LRG DW-6900

September 1, 2009

A look into the September roster of releases from Casio G-Shock offers a peek into a new DW-6900 timepiece, alongside premier street label LRG. The watch follows a two-tone yellow/green colorway with hints of white on the backing and detailing. The watch is a perfect way to stand out this fall season.

Though I was not expecting a collaboration between Casio and LRG anytime soon, I am pleased with the product certainly. By now, we all know my infatuation with Casio’s G-Shock watches, especially their DW-600 model, so when a look into their September releases dropped, I had to showcase them here. Personally, I love the DW-6900, especially in this colorway. Thoughts?

A Bathing Ape x Casio “Black Rainbow”

August 27, 2009

Today marks the release of A Bathing Ape’s latest Casio G-Shock collaboration. The “Black Rainbow” DW-6900 features a predominately black body with the classic G-Shock logo done in a colorful multi-colored rainbow motif, along with iconic Bape Head when the backlight is lit up. While this watch will be available at Bape Shop NYC on August 25th, the web-release is slated for today, Wednesday, August 26th.

Two of my favorite companies collaborating? Yes. A Bathing Ape and Casio have teamed up again to produced one of the summer’s hottest G-Shocks to date. The “Black Rainbow” takes on the classic DW-6900 model, which happens to be my favorite G-Shock model. Thoughts? Personally, I love the matte black with the rainbow-esque G-Shock logo.

Phantaci x Casio G-Shock Watch Collection

August 4, 2009

Celebrating the Taiwan leg of their Shock The World campaign, Casio teams up with celebrated shop Phantaci on a special set of their popular G-Shock watches. Included are three different colorways, each adorned with postal service details and Phantaci’s signature logo in theme-matching packaging.

Though it has been some time since I have posted a Casio collaboration, do not think that my love for the G-Shock has been shaken. Personally, seeing Casio team up with Phantaci is quite shcoking, but has deemed to be very rewarding. Persoanlly, I would rather have the pink rendition, but all three are dope. Thoughts?

Check out more shots of the collaboration after the break.

Casio G-Shock 2009 July Releases

July 3, 2009

In the midst of a large scale global tour, the following will release out of the Casio G-Shock camp for this July. A number of releases revolve around their iconic offerings, the square-shaped DW-5600 and round-dial DW-6900. Another addition includes the more contemporary stylings of the G-8100. All in all, it’s nice to see some more colorful releases as these have traditionally been restricted to collaboration models. Look for these at select Casio G-Shock retailers this July.

CASIO G-SHOCK 2009 July Releases

As I mentioned above, it is nice to see Casio coming out with some colorful releases that have traditionally been restricted to collaborative models. Honestly, I am quite impressed with this line up coming out of Casio, though I am not entirely a huge fan of their G-8100 model. However, the colorways of each offering is quite dope and I would easily rock out to their yellow releases. What do you think about these?

Also, be sure to check out the other models and colorways after the break.

Casio x Subcrew “We Shock The World”

June 26, 2009

In association with the upcoming Casio G-SHOCK “We Shock The World” campaigns, Hong Kong brand Subcrew and their well-known hat offerings have teamed up to provide the official cap of choice for the campaign. The hats are based on past G-SHOCK colorways done by Subcrew and Casio as part of the Unity collection.


I will admit that I am not too impressed with Subcrew’s work with these snapbacks. Honestly, I would not offer to pay over $15 for one of this simply because they look as if they could be bought at a bodega shop on the corner. However, I will say that I do like the simplicity of the hat, and of course, I appreciate that they sport the snapback feature. If I had to choose from one of the hats above, I’d choose the yellow/blue cap of the red/white cap.

Those are my thoughts, what are yours?
