A mechanical watch to commemorate the 40th anniversary of “Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro” has been released. The design is based on the movie's climactic showdown at the clock tower. Sales started on Feb. 27, 2020, through the “PREMICO Online Shop”.
The official watch commemorates the 40th anniversary of “Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro”. Its design is inspired by the story's climax, the confrontation at the clock tower, and is a premium model limited to just 1979 copies, to honor its premiere in 1979.
The design incorporates various motifs from the movie, for example, the second hand features a wrench-like design, reminiscent of the one seen during the confrontation between Lupin and the Count. Next to the clock's hands, we can also see it has been decorated with the silhouettes of the fighting Lupin and Earl.
At 3 and 9 o'clock, we can spot Lupin's favorite gun and car. At 12 o'clock, we find a goat emblem featuring a blue and red crystal for eyes, representing the rings of Clarisse and the Count respectively.
“Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro's mechanical watch” is priced at 44,800 JPY (tax excluded). Sales started on Feb. 27, 2020 through the “PREMICO Online Shop”, and the product is scheduled to be shipped in late May 2020.
