Well, this is something for the uber rich who are true Pokemon fans, with high-end watchmaker RJ-Romain Jerome collaborating with Pokemon on a new $258,000 watch.




The watch has "features" on its product page, with the company saying it has "Pikachu," "Lightning bolt," "Oscillating weight," and "Pokemon colors". This isn't the first Pokemon watch by the company, with their previous Pikachu-centric watch costing a cool $20,000.


On the Tourbillon Pokemon product page, the company explains: "The highlight of the timepiece is definitely the colourful dial, standing out from the all-black 48mm case and hands. Completing the ensemble, the black alligator strap is enhanced with yellow and blue stitching as a tribute to the Pokémon logo's symbolic colors. The composition and the placement of the characters-all were created to appreciate the beauty of the dial's numerous Pokémon".


"This concentration of and accumulation of characters in different sizes yields an incredible and captivating 3D effect, such that the characters look animated and ready to pop out at any second. As the most famous of them all, Pikachu is the centrepiece and is placed at the forefront. To complete the Pokémon scene, the tourbillon bridge is shaped like a lightning bolt, one of the key elements of Pikachu".


Alright, it sounds alright - but $258,000 alright? Yeah nah.


They've also made Pac-Man and Space Invader watches, but I'm sure there weren't many sold... or were there?!
