TAG Heuer One Piece Collaboration

I so want one. TAG Heuer has released two collaboration models with One Piece. What is One Piece? 

From Wiki....

"The One Piece manga and anime series features an extensive cast of characters created by Eiichiro Oda. The series takes place in a fictional universe where vast numbers of pirates, soldiers, revolutionaries, and other adventurers fight each other using various superhuman and supernatural abilities. The series' storyline follows the adventures of a group of pirates as they search for the series eponymous treasure."

The main characters in the series are:

Monkey D. Luffy: Captain of the Straw Hat Pirates
His crew:
Roronoa Zoro: pirate hunter
Nami: master thief and navigator
Usopp: marksman and inventor
Sanji: chef and martial artist
Tony Tony Chopper: doctor and is a reindeer
Nico Robin: archaeologist
Franky: cyborg shipwright
Brook: living skeleton musician

I like them as I am following their adventures both on manga and anime. :)

The two models in the collaboration are:

Reference: WAN2114.BA0822
Automatic Caliber 5, 41mm

Reference: CAN1012.BA0821
Quartz movement, 43mm

Both watches were released on 15/9/2012 and retails for about USD 3,200. The watches are based on the popular Aquaracer range. Both are a limited edition run of only 250 pieces. Both watches will carry the skull sign (One Piece Skull) at the 10 o'clock position and on the case back.

Why at the 10 o'clock position? Well, I can only assume it is because there are 10 of them in the Straw Hat pirates. But there is only 9? Well, the ship is considered part of the team. I would love to be able to the get the automatic version.
