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.

Nixon’s Elite Ceramic Collection

August 21, 2009

With their new Elite Ceramic collection for this upcoming fall, Nixon has yet to impress. Entirely Swiss made, they present the 51-30 divers watch and the Player model with complete ceramic cases. The 51-30 comes in two sizes in all white, featuring a ceramic bezel and strap. The Player comes in black and in white, with the watch case and strap coming in ceramic. Obvious other features include the scratch resistant saphire glass, Swiss movement and much more. Though there is not a set price, expect to pay at least 2,000 for each timepiece.

Though Nixon’s Rubber Players are some of my all-time favorite watches, these Elite Ceramics are truly one of the best watches Nixon has put out to date. Aesthetics, check. Design, check. Sleekness, check. Simple, yet bold, check. Price, uncheck. Thoughts on these timepieces?

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.

The Jumbo Watch

July 23, 2009

Timex 80 presents the Jumbo model, the brands’ classic 80s digital watch, in a new large format. A “universe” of colors are available with names inspired by the planets: Blue Neptune, Brown Jupiter, Green Earth, Pink Venus, Red Mars and Black Mercury. The last one colorway, the red/black watch below, is a limited edition of 500 pieces, only available in the most exclusive boutiques around the world. The industry leading technical details featured on all Timex 80 watches remain the same, with chronometer, date, alarm, water resistant case, and backlit Indiglo display.

Personally, I have always been a fan of the Jumbo watch model from Timex, so seeing it back on the scene creates an excitement in me. This timepiece utilizes timeless aesthetics, bold colorways and classic digital time. I love these watches, especially the Green Earth colorway. Thoughts?

Stussy x Freestyle Shark Classic Watches

July 17, 2009

Stussy teams up with Freestyle Watches to produce three colorways in the brand’s signature Shark Classic watch. The water-proof timepiece combines the timeless elements brought forth by the silhouette, also adding Stussy’s iconic graphic imagery placed within the face backing and Stussy logo on top. Retailing for approximately $144, the watches will see a release on July 20th, 2009 via Stussy Chapter locations with the Black/Pink version being a ZOZO Store exclusive.

Having Freestyle Watches collaborate with Stussy is quite the blessing for the folks looking for a new timepiece. I have always been a fan of the Shark Classic and of the designs from Stussy, so having them team up to produce this classic watch makes me quite happy. Personally, I love the black/grey colorway over the other two, but all three are pure fire. Plus, the prices are not bad whatsoever. Thoughts?

Fatlace x Meister

July 9, 2009

Fatlace is celebrating their 10th anniversary with a watch collaboration with Meister on their signature CMGK Watch. Clearly inspired by the popular Hublot Big Bang watch, the black watch features cyan, magenta, green and black accents on the dial, creating an overall stylish design for the casual and businessman alike. The watch comes as a chronograph with Japanese movement and is limited to only 100 pieces. Also, matching the watch, Fatlace also produced a t-shirt, showcasing simplicity and style.

Fatlace x Meister

The collaboration between Fatlace and Meister has deemed worthy to blog, in terms of their sheer excellence in design over this watch and t-shirt. Quite honestly, I am a huge fan of this watch because it collaborates style and sleek design. The watch’s cyan, magenta, green and black accents on the dial are the main incentives for the watch, but also the thick black band. I dig it, and would love to rock this out. Oh, and the t-shirt, though simple in design, would be a great summer fashion piece. Thoughts?

Be sure to check out detailed photos of the CMGK Watch, along with the t-shirt after the break.

Black & Purple Colorways To The Rubber Player

June 30, 2009

I actually thought that the Nixon Rubber Player push was over with the release of the yellow colorway, but it sure looks like I was wrong. Following up on their blue launch in March, Nixon releases two new colorways in their popular Rubber Player model, a spin-off of their classic Player timepiece. Various features within the Rubber Player include: 3-hand Japanese quartz movement, custom molded silicone case and band and a diamond. Retailing for $170, both colorways are now available at 80’s Purple.

Nixon Rubber Player | Purple And Black Colorway

As I have mentioned before, Nixon’s Rubber Player watch is one of my favorite accessories out on the market. The Rubber Player’s eloquent aesthetics, design, and simplicity have me in awe, and since I actually prefer the purple and black watches over the previous releases of blue, red, green, and yellow, I am even more impressed than usual. I must note that I am happy that Nixon has not stopped releasing new colorways of their Rubber Player. What do you think?

Be sure to check out more detailed photos of the two new colorways of the Nixon Rubber Player after the break.
