Mous Limitless 2.0 Walnut iPhone X Case Unboxing & Review

My Mous collection continues to grow!

Disclosure : I purchased this Mous Limitless iPhone X Leather Case direct from Amazon the review is my own as are my thoughts on the product.

One year ago (to the very day) I posted my first review on my first Mous product – the Limitless 2.0 Carbon Fibre Case for the iPhone X : Mous Limitless iPhone X Case (Carbon Fibre) Unboxing & Review

From there in March 2018 I bought the leather folio case and card wallet, of which you can read my thoughts here : Mous iPhone X Accessories Unboxing and Review

Then in September 2018 I added the Mous Limitless 2.0 Leather iPhone X Case to my collection and you can read about that one here : Mous Limitless 2.0 Leather iPhone X Case Unboxing & Review

So a year later and I got my third Mous Limitless 2.0 case this time deciding to go for the real wood (Walnut) finish.  So a year and three cases later then surely Mous must be doing something right, right?  Right!

Mous Limitless 2.0 Leather iPhone X Case

Rather than just regurgitate what I have already written about the Mous.co Carbon Fibre case please take a few moments and have a quick read of it.

The first comment I made in that review was about a missed shipping date and how this is only to be expected with cloud funding – glitches happen etc etc.  That point is no longer relevant.  We are now no longer in the cloud funding world, we are now buying off a well established business.  Shipping time was a couple of days and as you would now expect I had the case within the week.  

Things continue in this positive direction…

If you follow G-Shock and their limited editions you will be aware then that 2018 brings us another New Era Collaboration.

It’s not the first time G-Shock and New Era have teamed up and its not the first time that the watch’s storage container is a cap – which is just simply an awesome touch!

Seiko Black Series SRPC49J1 Unboxing – The ‘Ninja Turtle’

The Seiko Black Series
The Seiko Black Series

Seiko recently announced three new limited edition “Black Series” Prospex dive watches, which were released in the first quarter of 2018. 

These three Prospex watches take existing vintage designs and redo them in a modern and popular black scheme – a design idea that is unlikely to fail.  

Aggressive, legible, and handsome, the black dials, tan hour markers, and white & orange hands (done in Seiko’s Lumibrite) keep from messing up the original aesthetic of the pieces. 

Seiko state that the Black Series watches are inspired by night diving and are designed to achieve maximum legibility. 

With a reported (but unnumbered) sole batch of 300, these limited editions are sure to be much sought after by any Seiko collector.  Some have reported a mere 30 items were initially made available to the UK – that however I can not confirm.

Mous iPhone X Accessories Unboxing and Review

Mous Limitless Accessories :

Disclosure : I purchased these Mous Limitless iPhone X Accessories direct from Mous.co the review is my own as are my thoughts on the product.

I have previously posted a review on the Mous Limitless Case 2.0 for iPhone X – you can find that review right here : Mous Limitless iPhone X Case (Carbon Fibre) Unboxing & Review

I am still currently using that very case and have been since writing the review.  I am still hugely impressed by it along with its build quality and durability.  No doubt it was expensive at the time but it still looks as new and despite being used daily there isn’t a mark on it.

Casio G-Shock GBA-800 Unboxing and Review (GBA-800-9AER)

Casio G-Shock GBA-800 Unboxing and Initial Review (GBA-800-9AER)

At CES 2018, Casio introduced two new G-Shock watches to its ever growing collection of tough timepieces. Known as the GBA-800 and GPR-B1000, both devices connect to the G-Shock Connected app to help track different metrics and information.

The relevant watch to this review is from G-Shock’s new G-Squad series, the GBA-800 — a hybrid fitness watch that you can adds a little bit of fitness tech to G-Shock’s already iconic style.  It comes in six different colour models – and of course the poster child for the series is the almost day-glo yellow (or is it green) model.

Using a built-in accelerometer the watch measures your daily steps along with your walking or running pace, the amount of steps you’ve taken will be displayed on the watch, both as a figure and a graphic.

So to wet your appetite here are a few of the promo shots released for the watch…

Mous Limitless iPhone X Case (Carbon Fibre) Unboxing & Review

Disclosure : I purchased this Mous Limitless iPhone X Case direct from Mous.co for £43.95 (GBP) Delivered, the review is my own as are my thoughts on the product. Like me you may have seen the Sponsored Adverts on Facebook or some other social media for a company called Mous. Mous make phone cases and have a few under their belt already (from iPhone 6 to iPhone X as well as the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus). The Limitless case that this review refers to was funded via crowd funding. Their indigogo campaign almost raised $2.5 million : https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/protective-iphone-x-and-8-cases-mous-limitless#/

The advert that caught my attention was one outside the Apple Store in London where they went in and purchased an iPhone X on release day, popped it in their case, walked outside and chucked it up in the air. This all being done right in front of a crowd of Apple fans looking to go in and buy the very phone that was now taking a live flying lesson with a combined drop test onto the concrete right in front of their own eyes.

That’s a ballsy move and on watching how the case coped with drop after drop and even being offered to the public to have a go my mind was made up. The order was placed with an expected shipping date of 21st November 2017.

Griffin Survivor Extreme : iPhone X Case – Unboxing and Review

Griifin Survivor Extreme iPhone X
Griifin Survivor Extreme iPhone X

Another iPhone and another chance for Griffin to produce a new version of their hugely popular, successful and extremely protective Survivor Case.

In fact the traditional Survivor Case is now actually a range of cases. There is a Survivor Extreme, Survivor Strong, Survivor Clear, Survivor Prime, Survivor Fit and coming soon there is a Survivor All-Terrain. With the exception of the latter the above list goes from most rugged to least. Least by the way does not mean none, the survivor fit is tested for a 2.1 metre drop so is certainly no slouch.

This review though focuses on the Griffin Survivor Extreme.

I managed to pick this up off Amazon at a bargain £21, the RRP being £47 on the Griffin website and Amazon are now selling it for closer to the £40 mark.

It arrived next day (thank you Prime) and I was excited to get at it. I have used a Griffin Survivor before, although I think it was about the era of my iPhone 5. I remember it as a proper rugged case, I had no issues whatsoever with it, it really is remembered fondly.

Look at that range – it was a great case and I remember correctly – it was the case I got for my iPhone 5 on release day :

In fact after a little searching I was even rocking one of these on my iPhone 4 :

But times have changed – we are now at the iPhone X, my needs haven’t really changed though – I still need a good rugged case and when I seen this Griffin Survivor Survivor Extreme (especially at the price I paid) I thought my problems were solved.

Breitling Avenger II GMT Unboxing

Breitling Logo

Everyone loves a nice watch.  Let’s admit it.  Every time you walk past a jewellers that sells watches you will always have a look in the window and their will always be a watch or a brand that catches your eye.

For me that brand is Breitling.  They are big and bold, with a modern, and if you look back over history, a reasonably timeless design.  There are a few examples to that rule of course, for example the Breitling Emergency II with yellow dial.  Coming in past the £12,000 mark this watch comes with the added piece of mind that if you get into a bit of bother any where on this planet the GPS tracking on the watch with dispatch rescuers to you, hopefully saving the day and you…

That is not the watch I bought – however it is so damn cool!  If you are reading this, enjoying it and thinking, ‘that guy needs one of these’ I’ll be all to happy to accept!
