On June 19, the designs were finally revealed.
The watch features the show's protagonist, Son Goku.
The watch face itself also has a few special elements, such as the tiny four-star dragon ball and the series' signature "Z".
The back of the watch also features the Dragon Ball Z logo.
G-SHOCK X One Piece
G-Shock also has an upcoming collaboration with the popular anime series One Piece.
The watch is similarly covered with drawings of One Piece's protagonist Monkey D. Luffy, with special motifs on the watch face as well.
The watch face features details like Luffy's straw hat.
When the hour hand and minute hand are at the 2 o'clock and 4 o'clock position respectively, it also reveals a golden "X" image, perhaps representing the X-shaped scar on Luffy's chest and the pirates' hunt for treasure.
G-SHOCK x ONE PIECE will be launching online on 31 July, 11AM.
