The watch can be pre-ordered at Konami Style starting April 1st. According to Kenichiro Imaizumi, it will also be sold overseas, but you’ll have to ask your local SEIKO retailer. A tweet by Su-Yina Farmer (European communications manager at Konami) also suggests that the watch will be available in Europe.

  • I little over my price range for a watch.

  • Dizz

    A little over anyone-who-isn’t-a-CEO-or-doctor’s price range for a watch, I’d say.

    • Jak

      You need to be a CEO to afford a $370 watch?

      • Silverius

        As if it was a bag of lays. I’d say yes, or have a considerable amount of weekly income.

        • Jak

          “As if it was a bag of lays”?

          What? i don’t get how asking that means I’m reducing it to potato chips.

          It’s not that much money, and the aforementioned doctors and CEOs could afford actually expensive watches (given that the high end watch market -starts- at about 1k and the majority of it is over 10k).

      • Martin Paré

        You mean 600$ watch

    • myscrnnm

      Are you high? Retail price for this watch was $375. There are Casios that cost more than that. Entry level luxury watches these days are at the very least one to two thousand dollars new.

    “Local Seiko retailer”, yeah, I’d very much like to see that happening! ^^

    Has anyone ever found the previous “Wired x Metal Gear” watches outside of Japan?

    Pity they’re not including an engraved metal plate this time. But that artworks rocks!

  • Cartmangus

    Watch box art is better than the main game, lol

  • Vegas

    Look kids, another MGS merchandise i won’t buy 😀

    • No Place For Hayter

      Throw me into that category as well, lol.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Most people probably want the art alone, though just like the sail boat you shouldn’t but the large expansive product to get the bonus incentive alone lol.

    • Edward Wokhands

      What movie is this from? I actually need a watch, (weird how that coincided with this huh? My phone clock isn’t good enough suddenly… it’s uhhh… uhhh… in my pocket) I wonder how expensive this will be.

      • ThreeMadFrogs

        • Edward Wokhands

          Thanks!

  • Invader_skoodge

    I’d much rather have this than a watch. >:d

    • Shadow Rex

      I’d much rather have that arm to put my watch on, so I could tell the time while I used it to turn the pages of my art book… if only.

      • WhatTheJuicay

        you’d need another arm then like the guy above, to hold your art book so you dont smudge the covers.

    • bigshynepo

      Will the above watch bands accommodate the 1:1 prosthetic cyber arm?
      If so, sign me up for 2 robot arms and a watch please!

  • Chris Jackson

    THAT IS $470.55 CANADIAN!!! That is nuts!

  • Wantsum Candi

    can we buy the official E-Cigar please?

    • Schmojima

      that would be so cool! *-*
      it’s a shame we can’t have the holographic smoke…….

  • Big_Boss88

    I want this sexy watch ;D, but I think 45k yen is quite expensive o_O

    • Will Hough

      Big Boss, can you help me out with a way to buy the watch in the UK. I’ve tried to make a Konami ID but it won’t let me and I don’t think that konamistyle.jp accept British credit cards! How can I possibly order it!

  • Victor Medeiros Coelho

    First overpriced watch i’m ever buying… already pre-ordered. Just need to know, is this gadget water proof? better be

    • just look on the last pic. it says water resistant. 🙂

      • Victor Medeiros Coelho

        Oh just saw it!! Thanks buddy!

        • Dusty!

          Did White Rabbit get back to you about your order?

          • Victor Medeiros Coelho

            Yeah bud, they sent me an email confirming they have my payment. I guess the next update will be on April when the pre order opens.

          • griffndunn

            How did you order from a proxy shipper already? Don’t you need a link and for it to up already? I am using from.japan for the premium package and am going to try to do the same with the watch.

          • Victor Medeiros Coelho

            I used white rabbit express and provided a link from (i guess) the wired webpage with the news of the clock. They sent me an invoice and they commited to buy it when the pre-o opens next month. I just have to pay the shipping costs on september.

          • griffndunn

            They were almost $50 more expensive for the premium package, which is why I didn’t go with them. I’ll check that out with the watch though. Thanks!

          • Victor Medeiros Coelho

            Yeah but if you think that play asia is selling the premium for 500 usd and ebay for around that much aswell 50,00 usd more on the price seems fantastic in my opinion 🙂

          • griffndunn

            It definitely is in the grand scheme of things! I used the konamistyle link on this page. I didn’t even think to check at first.

          • Dusty!

            were they able to get you yours?

          • Victor Medeiros Coelho

            No, they weren’t… sold out very fast,… im SOoooo sad =(

    • Metztlitochtli

      Question, did white rabbit charge you right away? Thanks

      • Victor Medeiros Coelho

        Yes they did. Paid through a paypal invoice. Just need to pay shipping later

        • Metztlitochtli

          Thanks!

  • Ideflowedtombradysass

    Cool watch but its not water proof. You’d think a watch Big Boss would wear would be water proof/dive approved.

    • It says ‘water resistant’ on the back.

      • Ideflowedtombradysass

        Does it? But is full water proof, as in can I take it swimming or diving?

        • Don’t know about that, sorry,

  • ddmaster

    Does anyone know the the link to the webpage where I can preorder this watch? Can’t seem to find it anywhere.
