Despite passing at the age of just 32, Bruce Lee is one of the most recognisable movie stars in the world, having left an indelible mark in both the martial arts world and movie industry.

Had he not pass away in 1973, he would have been 80 this year. To celebrate, Casio has released a very special limited edition watch.

It's called the MRG-G2000BL-9A and it's based the MRG-G2000, which is Casio's flagship G-Shock watch and has been used as a template for a handful of other very special watches.

In terms of functions, the MRG-G2000 features Tough Solar power charging, Multi Band 6, and automatic time calibration via GPS.

And like any G-Shock, this watch is water-resistant up to 200 metres and it's highly shock resistant.

The MRG-G2000BL-9A features a black titanium case with yellow accents and a yellow band that pays tribute to Bruce's iconic outfit in the movie Game of Death.

The titanium bezel is engraved with the philosophy of Jeet Kune Do, Bruce Lee's martial arts system. It says, "以無法為有法, 以無限為有限." This loosely translates to "Using no way as a way, having no limitation as limitation."

This is also engraved on the titanium caseback along with the logo symbolising Jeet Kune Do.

The dial features yellow hour indices and a stylised Chinese character of the dragon, "龍."

The watch comes in a special packaging with a large watch box that has two dragons on the inside.

Only 300 pieces will be made and each watch costs S$5,399. You can't just buy one either, interested readers must take part in a raffle and only those selected will be given the opportunity to purchase.

This sounds unnecessary but it goes some way in preventing opportunistic flippers from buying the watch only to sell it off quickly to a diehard Bruce Lee fan for a profit.
