The Seven Lucky God’s G-Shock Daikokuten Limited Edition
The G-Shock Daikokuten is the next timepiece in the G-Shock Seven Lucky Gods Series. This piece is based on the popular GX-56, which was a model for which the goal was to be even more resilient against shocks coming from any and all directions. The watch arrive with G-Shock’s shock-resistant construction that uses a dual-layer urethane bezel and an inner protector, which helps to provide the added resistance and protect all the inner workings from damage. The G-Shock Daikokuten’s colours represent the strength of Daikokuten, one of the seven lucky gods, with black as the primary colour, which is then accented by khaki. The silicone band displays images of a magic hammer and a mouse, while three small oval-shaped Japanese coins appear on the watch strap keeper to represent this god of treasure and fortune. When the EL backlight is activated, an “O”, the fifth element of “G-Shock”, will promptly appear in the display. Completing the full set of the Seven Lucky Gods G-SHOCK will allow you to create all of the letters and the hyphen in “G-Shock”, a nice touch for those dedicated to collecting!
