To honor 20 years of Pokémon, Swiss luxury watch brand RJ-Romain Jerome has partnered with The Pokémon Company International to release a limited edition of 20 pieces featuring Pikachu.
Pikachu, the most well-known Pokémon character is the centerpiece, taking up the entire dial with a big smile and inviting pose. Placed on top of the dial, the appliques representing the famous Pikachu and the lightning bolt have been delicately hand-painted in yellow cold enamel. The vulcanized rubber strap matches the character’s signature yellow color.
Housed in a 46 mm Moon Invader titanium case, the dial has been crafted with love and in the spirit of Pokémon. On the black DLC-coated base plate, the engraved lightning pattern reminiscent of the electrifying character is either sand-blasted or satin-brushed to create depth. With a very unique and recognizable shape, the complex titanium case features RJ’s emblematic articulated lugs, the integrated ball-and-socket joints which allow a better wrist adjustment. The signature grainy-textured stellar-patterned on the case back continues on the strap and gives way to a circular-brushed steel Pokémon medallion.
