UNDONE are one of our favourite watchmakers for limited edition, pop-culture inspired timepiece releases here at The Coolector and they’ve left us mighty impressed once again with their latest release – the awesome looking UNDONE x Astro Boy Watch. If you’re a fan of iconic Manga character and find yourself in need of a new timepiece this Fall, you’ll be in your absolute element with this striking and effortlessly cool watch. Released to celebrate the 70th anniversary of one of Japan’s most iconic manga characters, Astro Boy, the first 300 customers to purchase the limited edition watch will receive a unique, collector’s box set consisting of the following – Astro Boy Acrylic Art Piece, Limited Edition White Astro Boy Strap and Premium Box Set Packaging.
The UNDONE x Astro Boy Watch is one of their coolest limited edition releases to date and you can get one on your wrist for the thoroughly reasonable price of £382. This watch is the watchmaker’s first dual time zone offering and that makes it all the more sought after as a result so it’s not hard to see why it’s already positively flying off UNDONE’s digital shelves. This cracking timepiece gives you the flexibility to tell the time of two different cities and to track a second time zone, it boasts a unique inner rotating bezel that is used instead of a dual time complication. The second time zone can be easily set by turning the crown positioned at 10 o’clock.
There is an instant Astro Boy vibe to this watch from UNDONE and it offers a vibrant and exhilarating colour contrast of fine red and green lines, which have been included to represent the iconic character, against a black DLC case. In the dark, the Astro Boy’s bi-chromatic lume really comes to life, with the green lume reflecting his features and the blue lume highlighting all the time-telling functions. This provides an astounding visual impact so rest assured, you’ll be turning heads aplenty if you get this Astro Boy watch on your wrist this autumn.
The UNDONE x Astro Boy Watch (£382) is impressively designed from top to bottom and has a unique translucent dial which cleverly reveals parts of the watch movement, imitating the inner robotics of Astro Boy. The dial is finished with a fine grid work mimicking the blueprint he was designed on and adds a real touch of authenticity to proceedings. The forged carbon fibre bezel is strong and lightweight, with the dark fragmented texture material reflecting the advanced composite material that Astro Boy is made of.
Besides having the ability to speak as many as 60 languages, Astro Boy is also known for his other powers including flight, super-strength, super-intelligence, and built-in weapons so he serves as the ideal muse for a technologically advanced watch like this one from UNDONE. Brilliantly realised and pleasingly affordable, this extraordinary looking timepiece is right up our street here at The Coolector and we’re not at all surprised to see it seeing so well amongst the Manga aficionados out there.
