Doraemon – Watch!

So, I’m pretty sure it would be safe to say that most people exploring have at least heard of and/or watched Doraemon before.  If you haven’t, quickly run off to YouTube, type in Doraemon, and watch anything that pops up in your screen.  *Or click here to save super amounts of time.* Oh yah, be sure to come back here immediately after.

Alright!  So one day, I had the urge to buy something related to Doraemon.  The following short story (honestly, it is) is about what I got and how it happened:

  • Doraemon….Doraemon….Doraemon.
  • Woah, Christmas cash.  Awesome!  What to spend it on???
  • Months pass by.
  • I got it!  Wait, nope, forgot.
  • Days become weeks.
  • Yatta!  A watch. I need a watch!  But not just a normal watch, that’s, well, boring.  I need something that will shout “huh! cool! woah! neat!”
  • Hmmmm….. I wonder if a Doraemon watch exists?  Yes, they do, but they are all so boring.  Except this!!!!

Back in 2009, Nooka (a watch/accessory/mindstyle company) collaborated with Doratch (a Japanese watch maker specializing in Doraemon themes) to create the ultimate Doraemon watch in existence.

500 of these watches were made and I am the proud owner of #042.  It took me quite awhile to find this watch within the price range that my Christmas money budget allowed.  I was obviously successful, but I still needed to put in some extra cash in the end.  I will add that it was totally worth it.  Not only do I get questions all the time about what is on the watch, but more questions revolve around how I actually tell time with this thing.  I will be honest, counting the minutes can be tricky especially when you are trying to be exact.  But who am I kidding, I didn’t buy this watch to be exact in my time telling skills.  n_n

Nooka still carries on the tradition of collaborating with various designers and companies, but this Doraemon collab is definitely one of the finest I’ve seen.

I just get the feeling this watch is missing something.  Doraemon voice prompts perhaps?

    Time is relative! Your watch rules!

    Just fyi, I will steal your watch when given the chance.

      Thanks dude!

      Man, if we ever have a yonasu meet up, I’ll pretend that I am giving you a chance to steal my watch. But remember, I am tricky, and you’ll likely end up crying in the end. n_n

      Haha, well I am a certified ninja trained by Naruto himself. So you won’t even realized it’s gone :P

    • TicTaek

      Oh, I certainly will as my Devil Fruit powers combat ninja skills quite easily. mwhahaha

      Hah! Alright, another thing to test out when we meet lol. We will see. Kage Bunshin no Jutsu!

      …you know, I could just buy one…NO, stealing is better.

    If anything, that’s a nice conversation starter^^

    • TicTaek

      Yup, it’s definitely started many conversations. It almost looks like a children’s watch so I sure many people are somewhat puzzled when I wear it.

  • Bonitabulet
