Leiji Matsumoto’S Manga Meter Watch is Big, Bad and Awesome
November 30th, 2009
Leiji Matsumoto is known in many circles as one of the founding fathers of anime and manga, creating science fiction classics like Space Battleship Yamoto and Galaxy Express 999. Now his unique futuristic style has found a home in an unlikely host – this dramatic watch.
The bold and badass Leiji Meter watch from Japan’s Seahope and ZERO Goods Universe will definitely draw stares when you wear it to your next business meeting. The body of the watch is constructed from a beefy metal superalloy that’s used in the manufacture of aircraft and rockets, and designed to resist oxidation.
Now I have no idea how to tell time on this thing, but I’m guessing it has something to do with those gauges, LED bars, and electroluminescent panels. Or maybe it doesn’t tell time at all. Who knows? Who cares? It just looks cool on your wrist.
You can get your hands on the Leiji Meter watch over at Seahope for ¥39,900 (appx. $462 USD).
