The Fukurokuju model, seventh in the series, takes its base inspiration from the GBD-800 model from the G-Shock sports line, G-Squad. The basic color is light green. The pattern on the band brings pine trees, bamboo, and Japanese plum trees together with the crane and tortoise, animals that herald good fortune. The watch strap keeper features three marks that represent the three Chinese characters in the god’s name, “Wealth:福 (fuku)”, “Allowance: 禄 (roku)” and “Long Life:寿 (ju)”, to create a vivid design.
Fukurokuju is the God that deified in Taoism of China, Soh. A long head, a long beard and big lobes are characteristics and always with a crane and a tortoise. As the name of “Wealth:福 (fuku)”, “Allowance: 禄 (roku)” and “Long Life:寿 (ju)” shows, he will bring a happiness, a fortune and a long life. There is a case to identify him with Jurōjin.
