If you’re still catching Pokemons, this might be a timepiece you’d want to pick up too. If your stocks are doing well, that is. Or if your trust fund just matured, because this baby is going for a whopping US$258,000.

While you pick your jaw up from off the floor, let’s take a look at the watch itself. The second collaboration between RJ-Romain Jerome and The Pokemon Company International (the first was a 20-piece limited edition watch (below) based on the brand’s Moon Invader model and priced at US$20,000), the Tourbillon Pokemon features a colourful enamel dial filled with various Pokemon characters and the most famous of all, Pikachu, in prime position at 12 o'clock.

The said tourbillon is positioned at six o’clock with a bridge in the shape of the lightning bolt associated with Pikachu, while a transparent caseback allows you a look at the Pikachu-shaped oscillating weight (below). Blue and yellow stitching—a nod to the colours of Pokemon—complete the look on the black leather strap.

We’re not sure what demand for this watch will be like but there will definitely be some very deep-pocketed Pokemon fans out there. The only problem? It’s a unique piece so, just like catching those Pokemons, you’ve gotta be fast.
