JAL Ultraman 55th Anniversary Ice Watch

Tokusatsu TV series and Japanese airliner collaboration wristwatch

US$ 262

The very existence of the JAL Ultraman 55th Anniversary Ice Watch is a testament to the enduring popularity of Ultraman, the live-action superhero of the eponymous sci-fi series by Tsubaraya Productions, the company founded by the man who created Godzilla. That Japan's venerable flagship airline, JAL, decided to collaborate with Tsuburaya to celebrate 55 years of Ultraman with this unique watch demonstrates that despite his venerable age, the savior of Earth and bane of kaiju monsters is still going strong!

If you're a fan of Ultraman, you will immediately recognized the details here: the red and silver color scheme, the Meteor Badge of the Science Special Search Party that works with Ultraman on his various adventures, the color timer at the 12 o'clock mark, and the very design of the case that resembles Ultraman's head. But don't let all that distract you from the fact that inside the watch, under its sunray dial, beats the quartz heart of an Ice watch capable of enduring 100 meters (328 ft) underwater and whose stainless steel case lasts for years!
