RJ-Romain Jerome’s new one-off Pokémon watch costs a whopping quarter million dollars


Luxury Swiss watchmakers RJ-Romain Jerome is no stranger to making beautiful limited edition luxury timepieces themed around evoking childhood nostalgia like the Super Mario and Pac-Man watches. The watchmaker collaborated with The Pokémon Company International last year to launch a $20,000 limited 20-piece edition Pikachu watch. The partnership has spawned a follow up collaborative timepiece which RJ describes as “the perfect alchemy between a prestigious horological complication and the emblem of the millennials.” The one-piece limited edition named the “Tourbillon Pokémon” comes with a colorful hand-filled enamel dial showcasing a bevy of Pokémon characters.

But unlike the previous watch that highlighted Pikachu, this one-off wristwatch’s center piece is the intricate tourbillon along with the lightning bolt-shaped tourbillon bridge along with a Pikachu shaped oscillating weight. The watch comes in an all-black 48mm case and is paired with a black alligator strap that is enhanced with yellow and blue stitching. And the price? A staggering $258,000 USD.
