Anime fans, this one’s for you. Japanese anime series like Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, and One Piece—amongst others—have become part of the popular culture we refer to this day. So what better way to show your love of anime than with intriguing arm candy that’s sure to spark some conversation?
Strike the perfect balance between having a little fun with your sartorial choices and adulting, with the Swatch x Dragon Ball Z collection, which brings you 7 uniquely designed watches from the world of the titular Japanese anime television series. Bring your favourite character everywhere with you—be it Goku or Frieza, we don’t judge—in a playful spin that best honours these memorable characters from the series.
The watches feature two versions or elements of the same character on the front and back, with Dragon Ball Z character names in English, featured on the front upper loop and Japanese on the reverse. The colours of these watches also clearly take inspiration from the colour palettes of the various characters, making each piece unique to their personalities.
As if one needed yet another reason to be in awe of the detail that has gone into the collaboration, super fans of the series can soon get their hands on a watch and a limited edition series (much like collecting all of the seven Dragon Balls). Make your wishes come true with an exclusive Shenron X Swatch, or the Shenron x Swatch Numbered Edition featuring the divine dragon that grants wishes to the one who collects all seven Dragon Balls, from October.
You can catch the Swatch x Dragon Ball Z collection now in Swatch stores and online, here.
