Sonic Marks his 30th anniversary with limited-edition watch

1 Comment
By Mochijapa, grape japan

Here is the perfect watch to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Sonic, our favorite hedgehog. This is a collaboration between Sonic and Seiko, one of the most famous and traditional Japanese watch manufacturers. That means this special limited model is the embodiment of the cool side of Japan. Only 3,000 watches are available at the Premico online shop.

This watch is very cool even at a glance, but let’s check the details. You’ll be surprised at its perfection.

The first remarkable thing is its playful design. The design is inspired by Green Hill, the first stage in "Sonic the Hedgehog." The cobalt blue-colored dial plate expresses the sky. Can you see Sonic running near the 4 o’clock position? So cool! The second hand features a fancy design with a little star.

Next up are its functions. According to Seiko’s official website, the original company name was inspired by the word 精巧 seiko which means “exquisite/elaborate.” And indeed, as that suggests, this watch is truly exquisite. Not only does it have a calendar and stopwatch features, but it's also water-resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar.

The logo and edition number on the backside are fashionable.

The box is a bright Sonic blue color.

Please keep two things in mind before you order:

  1. They only deliver to Japanese addresses, so you’ll need to use a proxy buying service like Buyee or White Rabbit Express to have it shipped overseas.

  2. Watches will not be delivered until mid-August 2021.

Visit the website for details and to purchase!

I've always been Amazed by this hedgehog. The character in the cartoon series was voiced by Jaheel White also known for being Steve Urkel on 'Family Matters'. You know, 'Did I do thaaaaaat?????'
