Carbon Fiber GW-S5600 & GW-S5600B G-Shocks Announced

    Posted the 11th day of May in 2010 by Riley.

Casio Japan has announced a new pair of G-Shocks that feature a carbon fiber band. These are going to be known as the RM series in Japan. The GW-S5600 features a regular LCD and the classic 5600 look. It has a retail price of about $340 USD and a release date of June 30th. The stealthy negative GW-S5600B will be coming out July 31st for $362 USD. Both are Tough Solar with Multiband 6 atomic sync. We'll see if this carbon fiber technology makes its way into other G-Shock models. Maybe it will be the end of resin rot?

Bright White G-100A and GW-410TCJ G-Shocks on GMT+9

    Posted the 8th day of May in 2010 by Riley.

The GMT+9 blog has a new post featuring the big white GA-100A-7A and GW-410TCJ-7JR Silencer. These two seem to go together nicely. White G-Shocks are really hot right now, but you have to look out for fakes. They are very fitting in warm weather, but you have to put in a little extra effort to keep them clean.

Some New G-Shock Videos

    Posted the 7th day of May in 2010 by Riley.

It starts off with this new video of the Hamburg vs. London Secret Wars competition sponsored by G-Shock. Soundtrack by Get Shakes "Plug in the mains" and video by StitchThat.




Next up is X4CTO with his video review of the GW-1500A-1AV G-Shock. It's sort of a different take on a watch review, with a good bit of NSFW language and thoughts on bar fights.




AyohJay has this video review of the DW-6900FS-8. It's his first G-Shock.




Tyko Moon has this new video. There's a bunch of limited edition G-Shocks, and some discussion on the future of his collaborations. Look out for the prototypes.




MrHPking shot a couple videos of his limited edition Brooklyn Circus DW-6900BKC-1.




Here's a quick look at a couple of the "Wood Shock" G-Shocks that have been customized with a wooden bezel.




And here's an extra bonus video from the "Shock The World" party in Tokyo.
