Grand Seiko Godzilla Edition

Post by Racer-X » Sun Oct 06, 2019 11:05 pm

"Seiko’s iconic clock tower atop its Wako retail store famously survived the bombing of Tokyo in World War II. However, it could not withstand an assault by Japan’s most famous fictional giant monster, who demolished it during a rampage through the Ginza in the iconic, original Godzilla film in 1954. As it turns out, both Godzilla and Seiko are celebrating anniversaries in 2019: 65 years since the Toho kaiju film that launched Japan’s King of the Monsters into pop culture and 20 years since the invention of the Spring Drive technology that revolutionized watchmaking. The dual milestones come together stylishly in the new Grand Seiko Godzilla 65th Anniversary Limited Edition."
