This Pokémon-themed designer watch costs $258,000!

Published

There are expensive things, and there are absurdly expensive things. We didn’t think we could top our recent list of products most people can’t afford, but this designer Pokémon watch just blows that selection out of the water!

Costing a mind-boggling, insane, eye-popping price of $258,000 — yes, this is serious! — the Tourbillon Pokémon Watch by RJ-Romain Jerome seems to be designed simply to shock everyone and bring attention to the brand.

Seriously, how could a timepiece this… umm… kitschy-looking cost such a fortune? Well, here’s a short list of features to convince you:

A highly crafted dial hand-filled with enamel and Pikachu as the centerpiece; tourbillon bridge shaped as Pokémon’s symbolic lightning bolt; oscillating weight shaped as Pikachu and lightning bolt with Pokémon pattern laser engraved; plus blue and yellow stitches representing the Pokémon logo’s symbolic colors.

That last part really got me. The same colors as Pokémon’s symbolic logo? I’m so buying this!

To be fair, it took hundreds of hours to craft this by hand. And because of that, the “concentration and accumulation of characters in different sizes yields an incredible and captivating 3D effect, such that the characters look animated and ready to pop out at any second.” Right.

The funny thing is this isn’t even the first Pokémon-themed watch RJ-Romain Jerome manufactured. Looking back to last year, the Swiss brand made a Pikachu watch that cost only $20,000. That’s way more affordable, doncha think?

I’m not even going to bother listing down where to buy this, but if you’re crazy enough to spend $258,000 for a Pokémon watch instead of, say, a popular restaurant franchise or high-end sportscar (the iconic Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS Gullwing comes to mind!), you better hurry because stocks are supposedly limited.

Nomad launches Ultra Orange cases for iPhone 14 Pro

Discount for pre-orders!

Published

It’s never too late to accessorize for your new iPhone 14 Pro. With Apple’s price tags still as high as they are, it’s important to protect your investment for the next few years. Unfortunately, a lot of rugged cases don’t prioritize fashion. If you’re looking for the perfect blend of glitz and protection, look no further than Nomad and its new Ultra Orange lineup.

The new lineup of cases — built specifically for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max — are delectably minimalist. The orange polycarbonate frame with a PET backplate can both protect your new phone and dazzle while on the go. Plus, durable TPU bumpers saves your hardware from drops of up to 15 feet.

Meanwhile, dual lanyard slots will add convenience if you need both hands for something else. Also, if you’ve bought into Apple’s wireless charging system, the Nomad case is still compatible with the brand’s MagSafe products.

To complement your phone, the collection also has an Ultra Orange sports band for the 45mm Apple Watch and Watch Ultra. The band is both lightweight and durable to provide comfort and durability throughout the day.

The Nomad Ultra Orange iPhone 14 Pro case will retail for US$ 49.95. Meanwhile, the Ultra Orange Sport Band will retail for US$ 59.95. Both are limited edition and will start shipping in November. Pre-orders will grab an additional percent discount.
