Just last week we reported on Casio teaming up with the Radio Eva on a limited-edition Unit-01 G-Shock watch, and seeing that this is a new week, there is yet another collaboration on the horizon. Casio recently announced that they are now going to be doing a Dragon Ball Z collaboration G-Shock piece. This isn’t the first time that Casio has done a Dragon Ball collaboration, as they did the Dragon Ball Super x G-Shock collection which was available in China a little while back.
In regards to the Dragon Ball Z x G-Shock collaboration, the dial and logo are embossed with gold coloring, while the dial in the nine o’clock position displays a four-star Dragon Ball design, whereas the three o’clock position is a “Z” design, with the Dragon Ball Z logo, found on the case. What stands out to me the most is the designs that are extremely prominent on the casing and the Dragon Ball Orange band of the watch. There is Super Saiyajin Goku, Super Saiyajin 2 Goku, and Super Sayajin 3 Goku.
The Dragon Ball Z x G-Shock collaboration timepiece will be available in August retailing at ¥26,400 (tax included) with no pre-order date being announced, I can only assume that this is going to be one of those limited-edition pieces that get gobbled up really quick, so if you’re interested in obtaining one of these limited G-Shock models, I would recommend that you keep an eye on the official page for a solid release date announcement.
The fact that Casio has just announced two limited-edition G-Shock watches for two of my favorite anime series, Evangelion and Dragon Ball Z, of course, makes me giddy. But it also makes me sad, because it means that I am now immediately ¥45,000 poorer than I was at the beginning of the week.
