    I wear an Apple Watch now and there’s no looking back, but once upon a time (pun intended) I absolutely would have been tempted by this.

    Yawn.  Call me when they make one that transforms like those 80s digital ones.

    This is not Transformers-y enough to justify a price that high.

    I assume it’s a quartz function watch. Automatic or kinetic would be neat. I have a Swiss Army Victorinox automatic. No battery, winds itself when moving. Not as accurate though.

    I actually really like this, but don't have the kind of money. I just pretend my silver and green watch is a Collab, and call it Azimuth...

    Well, it's not tasteless junk that just slaps the profile of one of the main 6 Transformers on the item and calls it a day like most other pieces of Transformers merchandise (gaming chairs, clothing, clocks, headphones, etc), so it gets points for that. But that a steep price tag. It's definitely more for people who really like nicely-made watches and also kinda like Transformers rather than the other way around.

    For 1/300 doesn’t seem bad at all. Limited edition watches can get nuts.

    That price..... ouch. But it\'s a limited edition watch, but personally Id just stick with the Transforming G-Shock Convoy releases from a coupe of years ago, thanks. :lol

    Actually an interesting collaboration for once. I'm not really a fan of chronographs though, and it looks a bit too tacky for anything other than a novelty piece.
    The price isn't amazing but it's a limited edition and, I assume, made in Japan (also hence the price - it'll be of higher quality than one of the international Seiko watches).

    I think they might have had better luck just making a cheaper collaboration watch, like their SK5 series, which are also automatic, so that could have been a fun tie-in with Transformers since you can see the movement from the back.

    I kinda want this. The preorder window is pretty generous so I might budget for a watch I'll hardly wear. : O

    Unless the Apple watch is permanently fused to your wrist, I don't see how this is an issue.
