Yep, you read that heading correct. Swiss watch maker, Romain Jerome, has decided to join in the Pokemon 20th Anniversary celebrations and release a limited edition Pikachu watch that has a retail price of US$20,000!
It comes packaged with a very swish Moon Invader titanium case and black baseplate with a cool lightning engraving. Still…flipping expensive and only for the biggest of fanboys/fangirls!
We here at Japandaman HQ have said a few times that the Sega Dreamcast is our all time favourite console. Ok, maybe that only applies to Japandaman. In any case, it looks like there are still some diehard fans in Japan with one fan taking his love to a whole new level.
They’ve gone to the trouble of reproducing the Dreamcast for its 15 anniversary in this stunning silver and stainless package and put it up on Ebay. The asking price? A mere #399.00. To have a look at the time, just flip the case open as you would to insert a game disc. The box it comes in even has orange felt lining the case. Classy. The auction has since ended, did a Japanda end up buying it? Hmm…
Love Dragon Ball Z and want to always be reminded of your favourite series every time you check the time? Imperial Enterprises, a jewellery and collectibles manufacturer in Japan, now has you covered. The watch below is their latest creation for the Dragon Ball Z fan, made to coincide with the release of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, the Dragon Ball Z movie out now in Japanese theatres. The watch is also an officially sanctioned timepiece by the movie.
The watch sports an attractive orange and black finish surrounded by a stainless steel body. The face has been designed to resemble the Four-Star Dragon Ball as seen in the anime. The watch also comes with a 24 hour time keeping ability, fractions of seconds, stopwatch feature and a calendar. The whole thing is complimented by the package it comes in which resembles a Hoi-Poi Capsule complete with the logo of the Capsule Corporation.
The watch is a limited edition with only 9,999 made, each watch sporting the unique serial number, and will sell for ¥39,000.
Want to get your hands on one? The official site has all the info, as of writing, the first shipment has sold out with the next shipment expected in June, so reserve one today to ensure you don’t miss out.
