G-Shock X Hodinkee X John Mayer

I was not a fan of the first two releases but this one looks incredible. The shade of blue, peach hues and pastel color base suits my style. Luckily I jumped on their website right at 11am and they had them for sale. Mine is on the way. Can’t wait for this new beater!

I sent the email

notice to my wife so hopefully she can gift it to me for Xmas 😂… she did for the last one…

I like it but feels a bit lazy to me. 3rd release from this 3 way collab and it's just another colourway variant. I actually preferred the last one, which wasn't particularly popular. There's loads on eBay.

To each their own! The pastel and light colors are beautiful to me but not for everyone’s taste. I can understand that

This will be the true test to see if your wife looks at your text in a reasonable amount of time haha. Or worst case, buy it for yourself, wrap it, says it’s from your wife to you and act surprised on Christmas. Who knows, she may just roll with it haha.

No I agree with you. It's nice. It's really nice. I just feel that the collab approach is lazy. It's the same watch, in a different pallette. Why not do something with a different G Shock?

Gotcha! I would have to agree with you on this one. Even if it was the classic square g. Hodinkee seems to have a new colla/exclusive every week.

Just ordered this new one too! Excited for it to come.

Surprisingly, I've come to like the second one more over time. Still wear the first one more often, but the second one was a "Meh..." to a "Wow, this is underrated".

·

I'm feeling the FOMO... so I just ordered one also. Love the colors and I don't have a 6900 G-SHOCK yet.

Glad you were successful!

Dear lord, that's a very... interesting watch... 🤔

Her response was this 👍🏻🤔 … dunno if that was good or bad 😂

Call me a cynic, but I feel as though John woke up, closed his eyes and threw a random guitar at the wall and whatever color it was, he went with for the watch. These collaborations just make me take Hodinkee less seriously.

Looks like it sold out on Hodinkee but still available at Casio

The whole collaboration thing is just lost on me. It’s another GShock in a sea of colored GShocks. What does it have to do with Hodinkee or John Mayer?  Did it really take that many people to come up with a color scheme?  The watch itself is fine, I just don’t see why adding more names to it does, or what those other people have added to it.
