Believe you me, a Pokemon product worth 260 thousand dollars is now marketed by the Swiss watch maker Romain Jerome in the form of a classy Tourbillion model after Pokemon. The watch shows off the images of Pikachu and other Pokemons - all lined up on its face 48mm in diameter. Features include highly crafted dial hand-filled with enamel Pikachu as the centerpiece, tourbillon bridge shaped as Pokemon's symbolic lightning bolt, blue and yellow stitches representing Pokemon's symbolic colors, oscillating weight shaped as Pikachu and lightning bolt with Pokemon pattern laser engraved, etc.

Tourbillion Pokemon sits in a PVD-treated steel case, 50m waterproof and the alligator belt is gorgeously embroidered to attract the Pokemon fans the world over. 
Romain Jerome boasts:

"This model is the culmination of our topmost watch-making technology well worth its price.

"This is the perfect merging of a complex watch of the highest quality and the symbol of Millennials."

Incidentally, tourbillion is a device to counter the effects of gravity by mounting the escapement and balance wheel in a rotating cage, to negate the effect of gravity. The term is often quoted as the pronominal for the highest-quality mechanical watches.

Just wondering whoever will pay this much for a comic watch. Romain Jerome once marketed a similar product in collaboration with Donkey King, but that one was priced at more affordable 16,500 dollars. Tourbillion Pokemon is in a class of its own. 

Let's see which you would pick: Tourbillion Pokemon or Porche 911. Or, would you dare trade your house for a case of  Tourbillion Pokemon? An internet customer, obviously a great fan of Pokemon, finds Tourbillion Poken fancier than the conventional Mario Pikachu line. "It's good to see through the heart of a watch", says he. Umm.
