Released on Jan. 2019

The Daikokuten model is based on the GX-56, a model for which the goal was to be resilient against shocks coming from any direction. The watch sports a shock-resistant construction that uses a two-layer urethane bezel and an inner protector. The watch colors represent the strength of Daikokuten, with black as the main color accented by khaki. The band displays images of a magic hammer and a mouse, while three small oval-shaped Japanese coins appear on the watch strap keeper to represent this god of treasure and fortune.
