If you head into pretty much any toy store on the face of this planet you’ll probably be able to pick up a Pokémon-themed watch for loose change, and while that might be enough for most fans of the series, it’s good to know that those with more money than sense have other options. Swiss watch maker Romain Jerome has created a limited edition Pokémon Watch designs that retails at $258,000.
The Swiss luxury watchmaker has just announced the Pokémon Tourbillon, a big, beefy watch that features multiple Pokemon characters – Pikachu, Charizard, and Spork – on a beautifully enameled face and set with a striking tourbillon. Other details include the likes of a lightning bolt-shaped tourbillon bridge, a Pikachu oscillating weight, and laser engraving throughout. The watch’s colourful dial is set within an all-black 48mm case, while the strap is made from black alligator, enhanced with yellow and blue stitching.
RJ-Romain Jerome has mastered the art of combining contemporary subjects with traditional watchmaking know-how, creating real pieces of Haute Horology. In this spirit, the Swiss independent Maison is presenting its first complication within the Generational Icons collection, the Tourbillon Pokémon—the perfect alchemy between a prestigious horological complication and the emblem of the millennials.
The is a one-piece limited edition.
