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?
