    Cool Casio Announce G-Shock Premium Cordovan Gulfman???

    I just came across this:

    Casio Announce G-Shock Premium Cordovan Gulfman | The Watch Hut

    Seems that we have missed this announcement from the beginning of October. I can not find much about it. No information about availability and launch date. Seems to be a ghost UK release...

    I read somewhere that it was a £500 piece or about $808 so it aint cheap that is for sure!

    I think this piece has a certain elegance but it is not my style so not for me... What do you guys think about it?

    Not my cup of tea. There is something off about a leather strap on a G-Shock IMO.

    Looks terrible in my opinion, G shocks do not belong on a leather strap or in a formal setting. Not to mention overpriced, for a just a bit more you can have the steel G shocks of the MT-G series, much much better looking.

    Casio Announce G-Shock Premium Cordovan Gulfman???

    The brown strapped one looks extra ridiculous.
    Too bad cause the watch itself is gorgeous.

    Cordovan straps are known for their durability and comfort, at least from what I've read. I think leather looks better on traditional analog pieces, like a mechanical, however. These don't look too bad, but they seem off. Kind of like finding a body builder who's a regular in a book club. (nothing against body builders who love to read and share their passion for books). And one would be essentially be paying mostly for the strap, which sounds ridiculous to me. I'd never spend more money on a strap than a watch.

    Digital and leather are no-go for me.

    (I do like the strap alone. It would look great on one of my autos, without the G-shock cordovan imprinting).

    Looks Horrible..wouldn't even pay $150 for it. Lol but the black strap one is better looking than the brown strap one.

    Leather is a refined kind of material and you need something with a similar aesthetic to go with it. Granted the GW-9110 is a beautiful watch, but using it seems a bit contradictory to me. The Gulfman is a watersport watch. It's not a good idea to go swimming with a leather band, even cordovan!

    So yeah, some people own a Gulfman and don't use it on the water. They just like the large rugged look with titanium trim. Well, a leather band in this regard is OK. But for the price they are asking? Yikes! That's just bloody insane.
