Romain Jerome’s Space Invaders Swank Coin-op Wrist Luxury
They’re heeeerrre…. just a few months ago Romain Jerome announced a licensing deal with TAITO Corporation authorizing the manufacture of a Space Invaders-themed timepieces–and now they have arrived!
The two cosmically cool 78-piece limited edition watches featuring the iconic Space Invaders characters on the dial hand-drawn pixelated strokes in a 3D format, one for night time use and the other for daytime. Each one will feature a steel case “coalesced with fragments from the Apollo 11 capsule.” So these invaders have actually been in space to a certain extent.
As for the cost…it’s speculated to be in the $10,000 to $20,000 range, unfortunately it doesn’t play the game.
“Hey! – What sort of watch is that?”
It’s my Romain Jerome – Space Invaders watch
“Neat! – pretty geeky though…”
Ha! – yeah…
“Next time I’m at Costco, I’ll pick one up”
Oh, well… you see its limited to 78 pieces, custom built and cost about $22,000!
“So it plays the game, right?”
“WTF, dude. Are you insane? Wanna buy a $12,000 dollar toaster that doesn’t toast?”
Only if it has some Apollo 11 scrap in it.
