More Options for Your G-Shock Watch Strap with VARIO’s G-Shock Adapter Kit

When G-Shock Japan unveiled their Military Black Series back in 2016, tactical watch enthusiasts were on the edge of their seats. The all-black DW-5600BBN-1JF, DW-6900BBN-1JF, and GA-100BBN-1AJF were rolled out with monotone blackout faces, reverse LCDs, and patented CORDURA® straps, notorious for their resilience in the harshest conditions. Unfortunately, this left owners of previous models with limited options when it came to achieving the same look or level of durability the CORDURA® straps were providing. Short of purchasing an entirely new watch, they were stuck with standard straps of most G-Shock collections. Until now. VARIO rolled out a custom G-Shock...

Being a brand owner himself (of the brand Jubelion), we got talking about factories, sales, and watch ideas.  It was then he told me about his collaboration with Alvin Lye from Azimuth working on a space-themed watch, which I found very intriguing. Fast forward 1 year later, his prototypes arrived, and I was keen to check it out, and I asked if I could review his watch. He promptly...

Mitch Mason Chronicle | VARIO Review

Benedict from Mitch Mason contacted me late February 2020 and asked if I would like to meet up with him to give him some insights for his inaugural watch and I agreed. We chatted watches like watch geeks do and exchanged notes for hours and reluctantly parted ways. From the watch meeting, I saw a determined young man wanting to break into the microbrand watch industry and was giving his all to his “make or break” project. I’ve been a lonely microbrand owner for the first few years of my new found career, and I’ve wanted to meet more watch...
