4,500 watches have been made, and the first will go to the manga creator
To celebrate 45 years of Suzue Miuchi's theatrical shoujo manga Glass Mask, Premico is releasing a beautiful watch themed to heroine Maya Kitajima. Only 4,500 of the timepiece will be made — and only 4,499 will be sold.
The purple roses on the face of the watch recall the purple roses given to Maya during the series, and the Roman numerals blooming into flowers represent her blossoming as an actress. At the 12 o'clock spot is a diamond, signifying a spotlight.
The back of the watch features an engraving of Maya, noting the occasion of the manga's big anniversary:
The watch arrives in a collector's box with an illustrated card:
The watch is being produced in a numbered run of 4,500. The first in the run will go to Miuchi herself.
Pre-orders are now open for the watch, which costs 32,780 yen. Orders will ship out starting in mid-November.
