Not that our favorite giant robots from the Japanese meta-series of anime, Gundam, will need to wear watches to tell time, but the sheer indestructibility and penchant for technological advancement are similarities both Gs share. For the 30th Anniversary celebration of G-Shock, the two Gs partnered up to release two limited edition G-Shocks in the DW-5600 and DW-6900. The special edition white DW-5600 is based on Gundamn RX78-2, the iconic Gundam design as a testbed weapon for Earth Federation. Meanwhile, the red DW-6900 is based on the MS-06S Zaku II Zeon mobile suit that is most common in the beginning of the show.
For the fans of Gundam, the special edition G-Shocks incorporate artwork and elements of the two suits from Gundam on the straps and also a character logo on the stainless steel back. Absolutely to become desirable collectors’ items, these watches will be up for pre-order in the second half of October, and will be available for sale in March 2010.
