The Daikokuten model is based on the GX-56, a model for which the goal was to be resilient against shocks coming from any direction. The watch sports a shock-resistant construction that uses a two-layer urethane bezel and an inner protector. The watch colors represent the strength of Daikokuten, with black as the main color accented by khaki. The band displays images of a magic hammer and a mouse, while three small oval-shaped Japanese coins appear on the watch strap keeper to represent this god of treasure and fortune.

He has a big bag on his back, a mallet of luck in his hand and put a hood on, and such his style is generally well known. He has faith widely as the God of fertility who holds the earth and foods.
Seven Lucky Gods Origin
The Seven Lucky Gods represent a blend of indigenous Japanese religion and Buddhism into a uniquely Japanese belief. This divine group consists of the seven gods named Ebisu, Hotei, Benzaiten, Bishamonten, Daikokuten, Jurojin, and Fukurokuju. These deities have their origins in ancient gods of fortune in Hinduism, Buddhism, Daoism, Shinto, and other sources. According to the Humane King Sutra (Humane King State-Protection Perfection of Wisdom Sutra), paying homage to these deities will serve to avoid seven misfortunes and be bless with seven fortunes. This belief began around the end of Japan's Muromachi Period. It became popular among common people during the Edo Period, and has been handed down to modern times.
