No one can escape the past or turn back the hands of time, but now some fortunate fans will be able to wear a bit of science fiction anime history on their wristes, because SEIKO and Sunrise have teamed up to create a limited production run of wrist watches designed with a Cowboy Bebop visual theme.
The Cowboy Bebop x SEIKO COLLABORATION 2020 watches are limited to a production run of 300 individually numbered pieces. The watches feature a design inspired by the iconic red, black, and gray color scheme of the Cowboy Bebop opening credits as well as a rose, a pistol, and the show’s logo engraved on the back.
Cowboy Bebop is directed by Shinichiro Watanabe and features animation production by Sunrise. Funimation distributes the series in the United States, and describes the story of Cowboy Bebop as follows:
Explore the galaxy in this undeniably hip series that inspired a generation—and redefined anime as an indisputable art form. The Bebop crew is just trying to make a buck, and they’re the most entertaining gang of bounty hunters in the year 2071.
The Cowboy Bebop x SEIKO COLLABORATION 2020 watches retail for 36,300 yen (about $346 US) and are currently available for order on the Premium Bandai website, with the final product scheduled to beging shipping later this month.
