Time to go

I dream of owning a Zucca watch one day. For those not familiar, Zucca (the Japanese clothing label designed by Akira Onozuka) started making watches under the name CABANE de ZUCCa in 1996 with reputable watch company Seiko. I recently went digging through their archives to pick out my favorites which was not an easy task! If you appreciate good branding and clever design, I definitely recommend checking out all the fantastic packaging too, which is pictured on the site with each watch.







I gotta say the alligator watch from the '98 Safari Zoo collection trumps them all!

These are so so great! I had no idea Zucca also made watches - the alligator is a winner but I also love the bandage one.

oh hi alligator watch. i wanted a zucca watch so bad in the early 2000s so on a trip to HK bought a cheap knock version that talked. it was awesome, but the alligator would have kicked ass.
