Ninja of the world, rejoice. Your day has come.

For as long as ninja have existed, they have wanted one thing: to find a high quality wristwatch that can keep up with the rigorous demands of their profession. And now, it looks like ninja around the world will no longer have to worry about this because the Japanese watch manufacturer Seiko has created a line of watches specifically for Japan’s most deadly and silent warrior.

Designed by Yoji Shinkawa, a Japanese artist known for his character, environment and mechanical designs for the Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders series of video games, this line of two watches is part of the company’s high-end Grand Seiko brand.

These ninja watches come in two types: a larger version called the “Ninja Spring Drive Model” and one designed with female ninja in mind called the “Kunoichi Mechanical Model.”

Aside from looking like shuriken (ninja star), Seiko says that these watches are even more exact, smooth, and silent than other Grand Seiko models. In other words, with these top-notch timepieces, ninja will no longer have to worry about being late to an assassination mission or having their location found out by enemies due to noisy ticking.

Seiko even went the extra mile by producing an English-language promotional video. Check it out below.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like these watches will ever go on sale since, as you probably already figured out, this is just an April Fools’ Day stunt. So if you really want a ninja watch, it looks like you have no choice but to buy yourself a Grand Seiko and glue a ninja start to it.
