This Galaxy Express 999 watch will take you on a journey


A never-ending journey

File this one under “Beautiful but oh wow that price.” At about three hundred and ninety US dollars (¥39,000), this watch celebrates 60 years of Galaxy Express 999 manga artist Leiji Matsumoto. This is not some random thing either as Leiji himself supervised the watch’s design. Black and silver are available and I'd say the watch captures the feel of the series without looking tacky. Although the silver more so than the black. Not an easy task, even for a watch designed to be sold for about four hundred dollars.

There are (unsurprisingly) only 999 of each being made. Better that than the price being $999, I suppose. A charming nod to the fans is made with a replica of the unlimited use pass, just like the one that was stolen from Tetsuro so many times. You can see more on Imperial Enterprise’s site.
