DJ Honda DJ002 Rotating Disc watch

It's been a long time since I blogged one of this brand of watches, so I thought it was about time for another.

The watch is by DJ Honda and is the 3rd from this brand I've featured here. DJ Honda is otherwise known as Katsuhiro Honda and is a famous Japanese hip hop DJ and producer. In the 90s, he started a clothing and accessories line using his 'h'  logo for the products. As part of this clothing line, he released a series of watches, and if there was one for every model number I've seen, there are at lease 8 different designs.

This model is DJ002 and is a rotating disc style of watch. It has a common shape of case, with a round centre where the face sits. The face is grey with a black stripe down the middle where the 'h' logo lies. At the bottom of the face is a small window where the time discs can be seen. This is a 2 disc design, and so there is no seconds display. It has a metal link strap which is fastened by a 'h' branded clasp.

The back has the brand name and logo, as well as the normal info (water resistant 5bar, stainless steel back, base metal bezel).

The watch was originally sold for ¥18,900, but isn't available anymore (and it seems that is the case for all of the DJ Honda watches).
