In July, Casio announced the release of their Limited-Edition G-SHOCK x ONE PIECE collaboration timepiece.
The alliance combines the bestselling Japanese teen manga series with G-SHOCK's reliable GA-110 watch.
The two joined forced to highlight the similarities between the ONE PIECE spirit and the G-SHOCK framework of superior innovation.
The watch itself features all of the great features you have come to love with the GA-110 and so much more.
It uses the GA-110 base colour of black to accompany the dynamic illustrations of Monkey D. Luffy who is the main character in ONE PIECE.
One of the coolest features of the watch is when the inset dial ticks over to 9 o’clock the iconic image of Luffy’s straw hat appears, and when it hits 3 o'clock the word "WANTED" is embellished across the face.
Luffy’s X-shaped scar also makes an appearance on the watch when the hour and minute hands point to the 2 o'clock and 4 o'clock positions.
The X expresses the ONE PIECE love of adventure and treasure hunting in the smallest of details.
And this is the exact reason why the collaboration works so well.
G-SHOCK is a range that obsesses over the smaller details to create superior products, and they have certainly done that with this release.
To celebrate the release of the watch, G-SHOCK also unveiled a neat promotional video which you can view below.
What Is ONE PIECE?
ONE PIECE is one of the most popular manga shows in Japan and across the world.
Fans fell in love with the show because of its symbolic art style and beautifully drawn scenes.
However, it is the characters that really make the show.
The show boasts an expansive cast of confident and likeable personalities that compliment each other brilliantly.
It is clear that the show focused heavily on the narrative and the development of its characters over time.
From the main character Monkey D. Luffy to the villain Donquixote Doflamingo, no character gets lost along the way, and that’s what makes it so great.
