Pokémon is one of the most universally
recognisable brands out of Japan, it is no wonder considering it is the highest grossing media franchise of all time, beating out the likes of Hello kitty, Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse and even Star Wars.
Late last year Seiko decided to team up with Pokémon to create a range
of cool watches featuring unique designs and styling inspired by the
world of Pokémon and its characters. They created a set of four Japan
exclusive watches, one of them in that set being SCXP177, the ‘Green
Pikachu’ 35mm, battery operated. While there are over 900 Pokémon
‘characters’ there is none more iconic than Pikachu.
The main feature of this watch is the dial,
it is a stunning green sunburst inspired by the Viridian Forest, a
fictional forest in the world of Pokémon where trainers can seek wild
Pikachu. The dial also features a picture of Pikachu running at 6
o'clock as well as a bright yellow seconds hand featuring the same
lightning bolt tail as Pikachu.
The watch comes with two straps, a bright yellow NATO strap to match
Pikachu of course as well as a leather NATO strap with Pikachu’s little
footprints pressed into the leather. This set comes presented in a Poké
Ball inspired box with a picture of Pikachu on the inside.
Whether you’re a diehard Pokémon fan with a first edition holographic
Charizard, or you just appreciate cool watches, then this is the one for
you. Unfortunately Seiko Pokémon is only available in Japan (that's
where our set came from). We might have another one for sale so if you
are interested, send us an email.
Stay tuned for more of these Pokémon special editions.
