The colorful, fantastical world of anime seems like a natural match for G-Shock’s often-larger-than life presence, as embodied by two new watches that perfectly marry these Japanese pop culture icons. While one model celebrates Dragon Ball Z and the other One Piece — two of Japan’s most famous cartoon series — both are bold watches that pack in tons of quirkiness and fun.
Based on Casio G-Shock’s chunky GA-110 model, the new watches sport resin cases and bands fully decked out in graphic designs from their respective anime series, with even more references incorporated into the dials. The GA-110, which combines analog hands atop a digital display, measures 51.2mm wide but is light on the wrist (72g), water-resistant to 200m and includes the typical G-Shock suite of timing functions as well as a 2-year battery.
The G-Shock One Piece GA110JOP-1A4 is available for $250, while the Dragon Ball Z GA-110JDB-1A4’s is available for pre-order now for $250 and ships in late August.
