Everyone knows how important pop culture is in Japan but few REALLY understand how important it REALLY is until something like the Seiko Pokemon Pikachu Watch comes out. Seiko isn't exactly a "pop culture" company: it is Japan's most respected timepiece maker and has made its name by keeping the world's most complicated train system in time! So when it teams up with Nintendo for a Pikachu-themed model, everyone understands that the universe of the small monsters is really important for the Japanese!
It's a tribute to Japanese designers that the Seiko Pokemon Pikachu Watch manages to balance the two world's: Seiko's respectable, old-fashioned profile and Pokemon's (and especially Pikachu's) playfulness. What you end up is a fine, stainless steel, analog quartz watch with a bright yellow face sporting Pikachu's back, complete with lightning tail, a Seiko-patented Hardlex durable glass, 10-ATM water resistance, and two straps - one from black leather and one from military-style green olive fabric to suit all your morning and evening needs.
