Deadman Custom Parasite GV4122

I'm back on the Deadman watches again today. I've been trying to find out as much as I can about this brand as the mystery intrigues me, but without much luck so far.

The Deadman watches have been around since the late 90s, and we're featured in several watch magazines in Japan. I've managed to find over 20 designs so far, but there is very little online. They were pretty popular in Japan, and regularly could be found in retro fashion shops in Tokyo in the 2000s. All the watches have a very 60s and 70s feel, and come in a wide range of different designs.

Today's model is one of the named models, and is called Parasite. It is shown as being a Deadman Custom watch, but I haven't come across a reason for the Custom name. The watch has a jump-hour /rotating disc design, but this time only 2 dials (without a seconds hand). The time display is very small and in the centre of a large silver case. It has a red patent leather strap (with the Deadman name on the back) which goes around the front of case with a rectangular window for the face.

This model is part of the GV series with a model number of GV4122.
