This Designer POKÉMON Watch Costs More Money Than You've Ever Seen

May 17 2017 -- 8:00 PM

Just now, I did a search for "Pokémon watch" on Amazon, and you probably wouldn't be surprised to find out that I came across a few options in different designs and colors for between $10 and $40. If you're looking for a timekeeping device to represent your favorite battling monster franchise on your wrist, one of those products ought to scratch that itch. If you have a few more dollars to throw around for a premium product, though, Swiss luxury watchmaker RJ-Romain Jerome has just the thing for you (via Kotaku).

It has a bunch of features that admittedly don't mean much to us watch ignoramuses but that sound like quality things to include, like a lighting bolt-shaped Tourbillon bridge, an oscillating weight that's shaped like a back view of Pikachu, and an alligator strap. If that sounds like it's for you, then check that you have $258,000 in your checking account before you buy, because that's how much money you'll be parting with during this transaction.

Over a quarter of a million dollars for a timepiece that frankly looks way too colorful and busy is steep, we get that. Thankfully, RJ-Romain Jerome offers a more simple watch that features Pikachu on a dark gray background and with a yellow strap, and that one only costs $20,000, which is also known as the Kelley Blue Book price for a brand new 2017 Hyundai Sonata.

Is this watch for you, or would you rather pay off your student loans? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
