The Pokemon 20th anniversary celebrations are in full swing, and as the franchise celebrates with new games like Pokemon GO, Pokken Tournament, and Pokemon Sun and Moon, plenty of luxury merchandise were also released, including a 24-karat Pikachu trading card made out of gold. Now, another expensive merchandise joins its ranks, and it is made by renowned Swiss watch maker, Romain Jerome.
Swiss watches are often expensive, and this new Pikachu watch, called the RJ X Pokémon, fetches quite the hefty price tag at US$20,000. It’s also a limited edition piece made just for the franchise’s 20th anniversary, so if you want a luxury item and show off your fandom while doing so, this might just be the watch for you.
The watch comes with a Moon Invader titanium case, which comes with a black baseplate displaying the engraved lightning pattern and a vulcanised rubber strap. And at US$20,000, it’s still a lot more expensive than that 24-karat gold Pikachu card.
