So, first, let's deliver the good news-- Japanese electronics and timepiece maker, SEIKO, has partnered up with what could possibly be the one who defined the Anime genre, Astro Boy, to create a special timepiece. Now for the bad news-- these are created in limited numbers, and only 150 are available. And now for the other piece of bad news, that is if you have approximately five grand to spare, as the collaboration is based on one of SEIKO's top of the line models, the Galante.  The watch features the SEIKO Calibre 8L38 automatic mechanical movement, and a small heart on the open window to the dial. On the rear of the watch, there is another small escapement featuring another escapement to the window through a sapphire crystal (something Astro Boy fans would enjoy). These are limited to Japan as well, so you might have garner some local connections to hunt these down. via: Luxist
