Since its release in 1996, Pokémon has become a billion dollar franchise, with The Pokémon Company making $3.3 billion in retail revenue in 2016. Even so, most people will find the price of this designer Pokémon watch staggering.

The Swiss luxury watchmakers RJ-Romain Jerome have created this unique Tourillon Pokémon watch, which you can pick up for a measily $258,000 — pocket change for most people. As listed on RJ-Romain Jerome’s website, the watch features the following as standard:

  • Pikachu – Highly crafted dial hand-filled with enamel Pikachu as the center piece
  • Lightning Bolt – Tourbillon bridge shaped as Pokémon’s symbolic lightning bolt
  • Oscillating Weight – Oscillating weight shaped as Pikachu and lightning bolt with Pokémon pattern laser engraved
  • Pokémon Colours – Blue and yellow stitches representing Pokémon logo’s symbolic colors

The design, meanwhile “yields an incredible and captivating 3D effect, such that the characters look animated and ready to pop out at any second.”

If you would prefer a watch featuring Pikachu only, this can apparently be had for a measly $20,000. Considering that a Pokémon Pikachu Illustrator card sold for $100,000 last year, this is almost certainly a bargain.

Do you planning on adding either of these Pokémon watches to your collection? Let us know in the comments below (and if you do, be sure to send in pictures!).
