To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Gundam franchise, Casio is releasing a new line of Gundam-themed G-Shock watches! The upcoming Gundam G-Shock lineup was revealed in the official Casio Taobao store and it consists of four watches, each with a theme based on a particular mech. Each watch will also come with a special themed case.
Check out all four watches here:
Up first is the RX-78-2 Gundam G-Shock, which is based on the OG Mobile Suit itself. It has a primarily white color with blue and red accents, and it comes with a strap design which takes cues from the RX-78-2’s body. The watch will be priced at RMB 1,390 (around USD 220 or PHP 11,400).
The second G-Shock has a design that’s based on Char Aznable’s MS-06S Zaku II. Aside from having a predominantly red color, the watch also has the Zaku II’s model number, as well as Principality of Zeon insignia. The watch is priced at RMB 1,090 (around USD 160 or PHP 8,300)
The third G-Shock in the lineup is a black-and-gold watch based on RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee from the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn series. The watch will be available for RMB 1,690 (around USD 260 or PHP 13,500).
Finally, we have the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam G-Shock, the main mech of the Gundam Unicorn series. This watch will retail at RMB 1,090 (around USD 160 or PHP 8,300).
The Casio G-Shock Gundam collection will be available in the middle of 2019. There’s no word yet on whether this will be officially available in the PH though. You can check out the full list of watches here.
