This watchmaker thinks this $200,000 Pokemon watch is the ’emblem of millennials’
Got a spare $204,000 lying around?
If so, then you might want to consider Swiss luxury watchmaker RJ-Romain Jerome’s latest Tourbillon Pokemon watch.
Other popular characters such as Squirtle and Meowth also make an appearance on the watch face, but ultimately it’s Pikachu that clearly stands out as the centrepiece.
The watch features a Tourbillon bridge that’s shaped as Pikachu’s iconic lightnight bolt, as well as an oscillating weight shaped as Pikachu.
The watch also bears yellow and blue stitching as a “tribute” to Pokemon’s symbolic colours.
But if you don’t think you’re quite willing to shell out that much money, good news!
The RJ x Pokemon watch, which features Pikachu as the sole centerpiece, is available for only $20,000.
Oh, but did we mention it’s limited to 20 pieces?
Both watches are a collaboration between RJ-Romain Jerome and The Pokemon Company, designed to “honour” 20 years of Pokemon.
According to RJ-Romain Jerome, the watch, which “pays tribute not only to an icon, but to a social phenomenon” is an “emblem of the millennials”.
There you have it — it’s not smashed avocadoes or flat whites but Pokemon that stands as the true face of our generation.
