     Conan Edogawa Model

This is an amazing Conan model which comes with a Baker Street style dial. A Red bow tie at the middle produces a sound. It’s designed so that when the clock hits 12, the key opens the door of truth.

    ★Comments by Gosho Aoyama
     I think this is a very stylish wrist watch with a real detective look. The bow neck tie and metal second hand, which looks like a key, are the most attractive part of this watch. I hope people will not use the needle for tranquilizing people. (Laughs)

     Kaito Kid Model

     Comes with a metallic belt watch inspired by Kaito Kid, who dashingly appears on the stage in his
white tuxedo. It is also designed with a clover that hangs at the end of a monocle and crescent moon.

     ★Comments by Gosho Aoyama
     This Kaito Kid watch has a gold clover and mysterious arabesque dial. The silver white color is full of Kid’s style (Laughs).

     Ai Haibara Model

     The impressive Ai Haibara model is in contrasting purple and white. The design of the cool
beautiful face complements the aura of the adult Haibara.

     ★Comments by Gosho Aoyama
     I think the purple colors represent maturity. The APTX4869 and black rose designs are the key features of this watch. Huh? Since the watch represents Haibara, I wonder why the rose is not gray? Seriously (Laughs).

     Heiji Hattori Model

The watch has a vibrant green dial representing ‘The Detective of the West’. The glittering swords are the symbol of Heiji, a master of blades.

     ★Comments by Gosho Aoyama

     The green dial matches with the green brim of Heiji’s hat which he always hides under. The key feature of the watch is the crossed blades. Harley is a real samurai (Laughs).
