Watches You Could be Buying Instead of a SwatchPain #1

Behold the #seiko x #transformers Autobot #chronograph, cal. YM09!

Image

At 38.9mm diameter we see a red sunburst dial, featuring an applied Autobot logo under the 12 o'clock, and an energon cube-signed #crown.

Image

the seconds dial at 6 o'clock forms part of a stylised Autobot Matrix of Leadership.

The case back features the grid pattern familiar to anyone who had one of the toys in the early 1980s.

Limited to 300 pieces worldwide, you can pick one up for approx. USD$400 plus shipping, online.

That this is referred to as the "Autobot" may give pause to those among us who are more of the Decepticon persuasion, and I will be monitoring my feeds for what must be an obvious purple/Megatron styled version soon.

Definitely made of sterner stuff than the Blancswatch.

Omg! I forgot this existed. Don't mind the #chronograph, I now must find a #nos example of this.

MAN.. I was initially excited when I thought that was Voltron. Then I put my glasses on and realized.. it鈥檚 Optimus Prime.

You may be interested in the Brave Express Might Gaine version then

Same specs as the Autobot version but more Voltron-like so long as you like your giant robots transforming into a bullet train.

I'd be lying if I said the #steeldive #fiftyfathoms-like model hadn't been on my radar...馃檭

I like it, but I try to only buy homages of watches I dream of and cannot afford. I'd be more likely to get a homage Tuna, but its still better than that thing Swatch is selling!
