JHA (Japan Handcraft Watch Association) started accepting orders for a new wristwatch inspired by a popular robot anime series produced by Sunrise in the 1980s, Armored Trooper Votoms, on July 20. The watch has three dial-plates for an hour hand, a minute hand, and a second hand, and they are designed after the head of ATM-09-ST Scopedog, the main humanoid combat vehicle piloted by the protagonist of the series Chirico Cuvie.
The first TV series with 52 episodes was aired in Japan from April 1983 to March 1984. After that, many sequels and spin-offs have been produced. The most recent anime instalment was a 50-minute OVA Armored Trooper VOTOMS: Alone Again released in April 2011.
The price for the Votoms wristwatch is 23,625 yen (about US$235). JHA has released many collaboration
watches with popular anime series including Cowboy Bebop, LAST EXILE, and The Big O.
