Sony has released images, prices, and details of their new wena 3 smartwatch collaboration with the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean anime on November 9, 2022. The website previously announced the collaboration on September 20, 2022.
Sony will release three types of the “wena 3 -JOJO Edition-” in limited quantities starting on Friday, December 16, 2022. Retailers will be accepting pre-orders as of Thursday, November 17. The sales volume of each watch is limited to 1000.
Jolyne’s voice actress, Fairouz Ai, modeled for the key visual.
Product Name: wena 3 –JOJO Jolyne Edition-
Model name: WNW-SN21A/L
Price: Around ¥59,400 (~$405 USD)
“I’ve always cherished you…”
Jolyne elements such as butterflies and her tattoo richly decorate the dial.
The dial has the word “JOLYNE” engraved to show the bond between father and daughter.
The locket that Jotaro entrusted to Jolyne is at the 12 o’clock position.
“Did you hear me? ‘Stone Free’… That’s its name.”
The band is made of fabric resembling a web of “strings”. It has the G.D.st.JAIL logo woven into the lining.
The minute hand’s design is an arrow shaped by the strings and the hour hand’s design is a fragment of the arrowhead that gave rise to Jolyne’s Stand ability.
“If I can protect her until the end… I’m going to marry her. Celebrate us.”
Diver Down “submerges” into the watch itself to protect Jolyne and the watch.
It secretly watches over the Stone Free depicted on the back of the watch from the inside.
Product Name: wena 3 –JOJO Jotaro Edition-
Model name: WNW-SC24A/Y
Price: Around ¥70,400 (~$480 USD)
“Gimme a break… I’m getting you out of here right now… That’s why… I’m here.”
The visitor is Jolyne’s father… Jotaro.
The iconic motif of Jotaro who usually appears flashy with “do-do-do-do (ドドドドド),” is scattered across the dial, bezel, and lugs.
The leather band is a reproduction of his distinctive snakeskin pants.
“Star Platinum: The World! Time stops for up to five seconds.”
The second hand stops time (it becomes invisible for five seconds as if time has stopped).
The word “JOLYNE” appears in the background of the second hand to remind him of his daughter.
“Look for ‘Savage Garden’… You’ll know it when you get there…”
The Speedwagon Foundation proposed “Operation Savage Garden”, which brought the Star Platinum DISC that Jolyne had recovered back to Jotaro. Thus, in tribute to this strategy, the emblem of the Speedwagon Foundation is placed on the minute hand and the Star Platinum DISC is on the case back.
Product Name: wena 3 -JOJO Enrico P Edition-
Model name: WNW-SC23A/W
Price: Around ¥74,800 (~$511 USD)
“This DISC is the perfect match for you… It’s yours… Your Stand ability…”
The crown-like “Whitesnake” emblem shines on the “DISC” shaped dial. A “nucleic acid sequence” is engraved on the bezel and white leather band and the Rosary hands tell the time.
“2…3…5…7…11…13…17……19 Calm down… count the ‘prime numbers’ and calm down…”
When you need to calm down or when you need to think with a clear mind, the “prime numbers” engraved on the dial will give you courage.
“‘Spiral Staircase’…! ‘Rhinoceros Beetle’! ‘Desolation Row’! ‘Fig Tart’!”
All you need to get to “Heaven” is “14 Words”.
These words are engraved as scratches on the back of the watch itself so that you will never forget them. The Green Baby is on the case back.
The watches have the general features of Sony’s wena 3 models, including the following:
- Transportation Integrated Circuit/Electronic Money Function
- Wide screen display
- Activity log function (steps and calories)
- Email, notifications, scheduler, alarm, and timer
