Final Fantasy Spirits Within holds the record for being the most expensive video game inspired film, which was produced by the creator of the Final Fantasy series; Hironobu Sakaguchi.
With the release of the film, SEIKO released a limited edition(10,000 units) Spirits Within watch which was based on the main character’s watch, Aki Ross.
The most prominent features of the watch are:
– It has Four Modes: Chronograph, Countdown Time, and Alarm
– You can set it to 12 or 24 Hour Time Displays Year, Month, Date, Hour, Minute and Second
– There’s a fully Automatic Calendar through 2046
– Has a 1/100 Second Chronograph Counts up to 10 Hours with 8 Record Memory
– Attractive Electroluminiscent back-lighting
– Stainless, Polymer Case and Urethane Strap with Adjustable Folding Deployment Clasp
– It detects life-forms!
These watches can be found cheaper, but you’ll need to keep an eye on eBay for quite some time. Since the release back in 2001, I’ve never seen these watches sell for cheap. If you’re interested in this watch, keep in mind that shipping is from Poland. Thinking about it now, I’m not sure if I can pull this off in public. I mean with the constant questions/comments I would get ,”Hey what is that???“, or “Nice watch geek!” that I would get at my work place would eventually get tiresome. Last time I wore my Tokyo Flash watch people were all over me like hungry dogs on meat.
There’s also another Spirits Within model watch; Final Fantasy Deep Eyes ENV Fossil Limited Edition Watch. The design of this item is obviously modeled after the Deep eyes soldiers in the film. This ones the rarest of the three watches produced for the release of the film, and even if you “Google it”, you won’t find one for sale. It’s limited to only 1000, and comes with a certificate of authenticity. This one on auction is brand new.
Other Video Game Auctions:
Custom Portable Xbox 360 Laptop – One of these currently sold for over $2000(same seller), and another one on regular auction for $718(minus a bunch of add-ons).
Super Nintendo Test Station – The seller says: “This is a vintage SUper Nintendo test station from the 1980s model 23240 . During my collage days I worked at a Nintendo repair center. This unit was used to test warranty items. Everything works as it should. See the screen shot.
The clock button on the top is missing but I don’t recall ever using it. I have never seen one of these on ebay or anywhere else”
Final Fantasy VII Cloud and Aeris Painting – Cheapest one I’ve seen on eBay! Still a high price to pay for any collectible. Seller says this is limited to just 200. The Art Vivant silkscreen is hand-autographed & serialized by Yoshitaka Amano.
Castlevania Dawn Of Sorrow Signed by Koji Igarashi – Koji Igarashi is one of the producers for the Castlevania games, and first came on board with Symphony of the Night(nice way to start your Konami career!). Whats the best thing about this auction? Item comes with PROOF! I don’t know why, but I would feel REALLY awkward asking Koji, “Hey wait I want a picture, but can you hold up the items you signed?“. Obviously they’re going on eBay..
