Caveman watches, a wholly owned Ghanaian watch manufacturing company launches on 12/12/18. Speaking with the CEO of Caveman and TimepieceGh, Mr Anthony Dzamefe, the recently awarded Emerging Youth Innovator at Ghana Youth Event Awards 2018, he said he chose to launch CAVEMAN on 12/12/18 because not only is it his birthday but also because the journey to get here have been filled with adversity. He therefore considers the launch as a gift to himself and to all Ghanaians and also as a reminder and assurance that if you want to, you can.
Before Caveman, there was TimepieceGh, which Mr Dzamefe started in 2015, with just GHC50. He started this company because he wanted to buy a watch and it was so expensive, but rather than just complain about how much the watch cost, it birthed a curiosity in him to delve deeper into what made quality watches so special and expensive, this led to an idea at the back of his mind that one day he will love to make watches of his own. He realized that he needed to start from somewhere though, so he begun by doing the unglamorous things, like hawking watches at car parks and the mall and in front of offices etc.
One major thing Mr Dzamefe noticed during this time was the fact that all the watches he was selling, none was manufactured in Africa nor owned by Africans, so after settling in a shop in 2017/2018, he took the next step and enrolled in an online Swiss watch making course. This led to him making handmade leather straps and also the repairing of broken-down watches from there he started making wall clocks from discarded wood. He affectionately named the clocks WOODPERKER, which has all led to 12/12/18, the unveiling of CAVEMAN.
Why CAVEMAN though? Why not something more sophisticated like all other watches? According to Mr Anthony he drew and still draws a lot of inspiration from sophisticated originality, durability, and natures presence in the works of the prehistoric caveman, and therefore decided to build a brand that will have these values and be a constant reminder for us to be limitless and achievers’ whiles keeping in touch with our origins. In short, a brand that will be known for its hand made durability and will deliver everything it promises.
CAVEMAN watches will start selling on 12/12/18, you can visit their website www.cavemanwatches.com or their social media pages on Facebook and Instagram: cavemanwatches to place your orders. The amazing part is you only make payment on delivery after carefully inspecting the product to ensure its what you ordered for.
If you want to be remembered, then your wrist need a CAVEMAN watch, CAVEMAN, BE REMEMBERED.

The Women’s Nike Air Max FF 720 Releases On June 20th
Nike Sportswear has a propensity to push the boundaries of what’s possible in casual footwear, so it’s rarely surprising when they create an extremely unique product. However, it’s unquestionably safe to say that the new Air Max FF 720 for women is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.
Essentially a closed-toe Air Max 720 sandal, the FF offers a cut-out upper with an ultra-simplistic lacing system in both an airy sail and a stark black colorway. Although the heel and mid foot are both left wide open, the toe box is indeed left shut to provide a more snug fit and some slight semblance of simplicity. Down below, the 720’s already-sizeable cushioning unit is made even more bulbous, thanks to it being sandwiched in between a black strobel and a chunky textured outsole that gives off slight shades of the Air Force 1. These ladies-only shoes/sandals/wearable concepts are set to debut on June 20th at retailers like atmos, so get a first look here and stay tuned for more striking designs from the Swoosh Brand’s lifestyle division as well.

Transparent Looks (Fashion Trends)
One of the most unexpected trends to make its way from the runway to our wardrobes is the Transparent Clothing also known as PVC ("vinyl clothing").
Last year, Chanel's spring '18 runway introduced us to translucent shoes and bags, setting the tone for PVC to dominate in the summer of 2018. From clear outerwear to see-through boots and bags, the ubiquitous material took over every fashion girl's wardrobe.
Looks like Life in Plastic is really Fantastic!
