Good heavens, would you look at the time?


Hit anime One Piece is teaming up with Swiss watch maker Tendence to release a trio of piratical watches. The timepieces, emblazoned with art of Luffy and Shanks, celebrate the manga’s 25th anniversary, as well as the upcoming release of ONE PIECE FILM RED.


For Straw Hat fans, there’s the brightly-colored Luffy watch. Each number on the face is rendered in the image color of one of his crew (leaving the 11 and 12 clear).

There are two version of Shanks’s watch. The “Red” model features a bold red and black design:

Sadly, if you’ve got your eye on the color version of the Shanks watch, you’re out of luck. It was limited to a run of 25, and it’s already gone. The same goes for Tendence’s Treasure Box: a 99,000 yen treasure chest containing both the Luffy and Shanks (red ver.) watch. It, too, was limited to 25 pieces.

So if you’ve got your eye on either of the remaining watches, you’ll want to act fast. Then, you can count down the time ’til August 6, when ONE PIECE FILM RED finally premieres.
