Casio recently announced the release of new additions to the G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches developed in collaboration with Japanese TV anime series, ONE PIECE and Dragon Ball Z. The fun and functional G-SHOCK designs will appeal to fans of each anime series throughout the world.
Based on the GA-110, popular worldwide, the new GA-110JOP also sports a big watch case. Using black as the base color, the entire watch is emblazoned with dynamic illustrations of the main character, Monkey D. Luffy, who is growing and becoming stronger.
The indicator of the inset dial in the 9 o’clock position features Luffy’s straw hat as a design motif, while the word, “WANTED” is found in the 3 o’clock position. Also, when the hour and minute hands point to the 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock positions respectively, they combine visually with the two diagonal lines on the dial to form a golden “X”. This represents the X-shaped scar on Luffy’s chest, and also expresses the ONE PIECE love of adventure and treasure hunting in the smallest of details.
The new model comes in a special package along with a combined “G-SHOCK × ONE PIECE” logo on the case back. This makes it a special model that demonstrates collaboration between the ever-advancing G- SHOCK line and the exciting ONE PIECE series where Luffy sets out on adventures to new worlds.

The dial and logo are enhanced with a gold accents, for a strong impact. The inset dial in the 9 o’clock position displays a four-star ball motif. This ball is one of the seven dragon balls, and is the one most closely associated with Son Goku. In the 3 o’clock position, there is a “Z” motif. The Dragon Ball Z logo can be found on the case back and on the special package. This unique product design befits this special collaboration model.
