Do not be fooled by appearances.
On second thought, the new G-Shock x One Piece * collaboration is * everything it seems to be.
The limited edition model GA110JOP-1A4 watch takes inspiration from all that is animated with its A play theme. It features a black theme to honor the main character of the series, Monkey D. Luffy. He’s on a never-ending journey to improve himself, but the prop itself can’t be bigger. Dressed in red and gray, Luffy’s lively personality is shown throughout this one.
At 3:00 a.m. the word “wanted” is ready to be used, opposite at 9:00 a.m. Luffy’s straw hat is hidden on the inlaid dial. When the hour and minute hands point to 2 and 4, they create an x like an ode to Luffy’s x-shaped scar on his chest.
Not only does it look cool, but it’s also quite functional. The watch is shock resistant. 200 meters water resistance, mute function, automatic LED with afterglow, fully automatic calendar and many other technical sounding things, which are probably useful but IDK what they mean. Check them out for yourself here.
Fans can find the watch for $ 250 at G-Shock retailers, the G-Shock Soho store and online on July 26.
