Gear up for a wild ride in watchmaking as Hideo Kojima, the brain behind Death Stranding (and the Metal Gear franchise), teams up with Anicorn to create the Reverse Trike Time watch. This isn’t just a watch; it’s a tribute to the game’s iconic Reverse Trike, blending the thrill of adventure with the tick-tock of time.

This timepiece is more than just a time-teller. The Reverse Trike Time is a slice of the Death Stranding universe wrapped around your wrist. It’s all about style and story, with a color scheme inspired by the game’s Trike and a cerakote-coated case for that rugged yet chic look. The dial is a shout-out to the Bridges and SDT logos, and the UV ink on the back gets all flashy when zapped with the Ultraviolet Generator.

Hold on to your wrist because those are not it. This watch comes with two straps – a sporty fluoroelastomer one with the Bridges logo, and a laid-back nylon option, giving you the freedom to switch up your style on the fly.

For the Rare Edition fans, there’s the Bridges Cargo Case – a 1:1 scale replica of Sam Porter Bridges’ suitcase in the video game. Mind you though, it’s not just a collector’s item; it’s functional, made of sturdy Aluminum Alloy, and ready for your real-world adventures.

And let’s not forget the Yoji Shinkawa-designed Watch Winder – aptly called Time Winder which is a piece of art that’s functional too. It’s like having a piece of the haunting Death Stranding landscapes right on your desk. Oh, in case you do not know, Shinkawa-san was the lead character and mecha designer for the Metal Gear series.

In short, the Reverse Trike Time is a must-have for Death Stranding fans and watch enthusiasts alike, merging the excitement of gaming with the precision of horology. I wanted to say it is a must-have for staunch fans but here’s the thing. The Reverse Trike Time Limited Edition, which comes with both straps and the Ultraviolent Generator in co-branded packaging is not cheap.

It will make you US$940 poorer. And the Rare Edition with the fancy post-apocalyptic briefcase will bust a chunk out of your bank accounting, commanding a hefty US$2,340. Price isn’t the only problem. Rare Edition has an edition number of just 200. If you plan to show off your prized timepiece on the said Time Winder, that will run you back at another US$680. You must be a superfan to be wanting to drop that kind of money.
