Seiko Prospex X Mobile Suit Gundam Collaboration Models
Gundam X Seiko
In honor of the hit anime franchise Mobile Suit Gundam, SEIKO watch makers have a special collaboration to celebrate the franchise's 40th anniversary. SEIKO will be releasing three limited-edition Gundam themed watches through their Seiko Prospex line of sport watches. The three watches are based on the Earth Commonwealth Army's RX-78-2 Gundam Suit, the Char's Red Zaku, and the mass produced Green Zaku.
The RX-78-2 design is based on Seiko Prospex LUX line of watches and features detailing reminiscent to the RX-78-2 from the anime. Decked out in the same red, white, blue with gold trimmings as the mobile suit, this luxurious watch includes additional RX-78-2 detailing on the side for clean look. The watch comes with an alternate watch band as well, to provide the wearer with a more versatile design no matter where they go.
The Zaku edition watches are based on the Seiko Diver line and includes a special silicon band straps that compliment the timepiece's colors perfectly. This diver watch can handle dives up to 1,000 meters below sea level without worry. Built with the resilience of the Zaku in mind, this diver watch has everything you'd expect from SEIKO with the anime flair from Gundam.
Each watch comes with a special Seiko Prospex box in matching colors and are built to the high-end standards SEIKO holds for all it's watches. This line of limited watches are sure to be a hit among Anime fans and watch collectors alike.
