The Extremely Limited Edition UK RE5 Watch

The creators of the limited-edition Metal Gear Solid 4 watch that UK fans went crazy over last year are back, with a Gamestation-exclusive limited-edition Resident Evil 5 timepiece.


The designer of the watch himself, Adi Wells, sends us the scoop on the Resident Evil 5 watch, which will be available for pre-order through UK retailer Gamestation later this week, for a July 31st release. Limited to 555 pieces, this lovely watch comes with a steel band with a dual-clasp buckle engraved with the Capcom logo. It features a reinforced mineral lens, a screw down crown, and many other things that I'm sure only a watch aficionado would understand. Adi was a bit excited when he mailed us, so the description gets a bit technical.

Solid screw down case back Matte black dial w/ white luminous imprinted indices and Special 5 index in colour. OS21 mov't 5hands with date at 6hr, White luminous hands. Presented in an RE5 display box..

Out of all of that, I think the only thing I understood was RE5 display box, which if anything like the Metal Gear Solid 4 display box is a lovely piece of work in and of itself.

The Resident Evil 5 watch has been fully endorsed by Capcom Europe, and will retail for £119.99. Each watch has its series number inscribed on the underside, and will ship with a certificate of authenticity.

They will be a UK exclusive initially, though Adi indicates that they'll try to offer it to the rest of Europe should supplies hold out. With only 555 hitting market, I'd say now would be a god time to find a friend in the UK. Keep an eye on the Gamestation website over the next few days, cause when pre-orders start, I doubt they'll last long.

I like the box, but the watch itself barely has anything to do with RE other than the damn logo. They coulda put more effort into it.

There are lots better looking watches on ebay and for much less. Not like anyone wears watches these days anyway.
