This summer, Casio announced a limited-edition timepiece dedicated to one of Japan’s most popular animated tv series: One Piece.
The G-Shock x One Piece is an artistically embellished version of the Casio’s GA-110. And the styling inspiration is based on the show’s main character Monkey D. Luffy.
With black as the base color, and the entire watch is emblazoned with illustrations of the Luffy.
The indicator of the inset dial in the 9 o’clock position features Luffy’s straw hat as the design motif while the word “WANTED” is embellished on the 3 o’clock position. Also, when the hour and minute hands point to the 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock positions respectively, they combine visually with the two diagonal lines on the dial to form a golden “X.” This represents the X-shaped scar on Luffy’s chest.
The watch band depicts a comic strip of the hero’s signature battle poses as he embarks on an adventure to new worlds through a symbolic color palette of alternating streaks of black, white, and red. The new model features a “G-SHOCK x ONE PIECE” logo on the caseback and comes in a special package designed specifically for the collaboration.
