The Onitsuka Tiger Watch Collection applies a retro feel to the Onitsuka Tiger brand without appearing garish or gimmicky. The collection offers two distinct styles in an array of colors. Select your choice of chronograph or a basic three-hand as both timepieces capture the heritage of Onitsuka Tiger effortlessly. The watches are enclosed in stainless steel, with Seiko movements behind curved mineral glass and water resistant up to 100 meters. Both styles have an engraved Onitsuka Tiger on the rear and take styling cues from the 1970′s and the classic Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 sneakers. The new Onitsuka Tiger watch collection is identifiable by the square cases unlike earlier versions. Expect the new Onitsuka Tiger watches at retailers worldwide in August.
