$10,000+ Space Invaders Watch: Drop Down, Reverse Direction and Empty Bank Account!
June 23rd, 2011
This wouldn’t be the first Space Invaders watch I’ve featured on the site. It’s not even the first rare Space Invaders watch. But it is – for sure – the first one to cost $10,000. Actually, the guys over at Perpetuelle are just guessing at that price. It could be somewhere between $10k and $15k for one.
This thing of geek beauty from watchmaker Romain Jerome is being made in collaboration with TAITO, and they look awesome. 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.
Two versions of the watch are being made, one for day (the full color one), and one for night (with glowing “Superluminova” invaders). At as little as $10k a piece, why not buy both? Each Space Invaders watch is being made in a very limited run of just 78 pieces. Even so, if you do the math on that, once they sell out, Romain Jerome and TAITO stand to pocket a tidy sum $1,560,000. Not a bad days work for the Space Invaders, eh?
