What Time is it? Let Me Check my EVANGELION Watch

Or my KAMEN RIDER watch!

Have you ever been stuck in a situation where you had to wear boring non-anime related clothing for hours on end? Yes, we all have. However, this will no longer be a problem since Gainax has given us the ability to wear a piece of otaku on our wrists with two new G-Shock watches. An Evangelion Unit 01 watch, and a Rei plug suit watch. If that wasn’t awesome enough, Casio  is also releasing a Kamen Rider version as well.

The Evangelion watches will be released in August for around 19,950 yen (about $200), and the Kamen Rider watch will be released later in January for 23,100 yen (about $235). A purple watch can seem odd, but can be pulled off with the right clothing and the right attitude. Though only true men can wear the Kamen Rider watch; I’m sorry it’s in the watch’s contract.

My God that's awesome. It Must Be Mine!

...G-Shock is also releasing... 

No, it's a product from Casio.  That's like saying Burst Angel released Blu-Rays, which is completely wrong. There is no G-Shock that can release a product, G-Shock is just a trade mark for the extra durable materials they put into it.
 
To me, the purple one looks like a $40 sports watch in kiddie colors, I don't think I'd want to be caught wearing the white one.  If I'm paying $230 for a watch (19950 yen @ 92 yen/USD, plus shipping), I'm buying something made from metal.

Does it tell you when Third Impact occurs? I also wonder if the Unit-2 version curses you out in German at every hour?

Lol, they look like those over sized watches for kids made back in the late 80's early 90's. 
 
JESUS! They want $200+ for these things? *Looks at calender* Wait, this isn't April first. That means they're seriously asking $200 for those things? Wow...

These EVA watches are cute and all, but there is an infamous Evangelion watch that costs like $2000. I have it as an ebay search, hoping that one decade it will reach a price I can afford.

Yeah, I hate to admit it but I agree entirely.
