Evangelion is never associated with luxury, but here it is, an Evangelion timepiece that’s definitely in the luxury watch realm. And it is not just any timepiece; it is a pocket watch. A Rei Ayanami-themed pocket watch, to be precise.
Folks, meet the EVA x U-Treasure Rei Ayanami Pocket Watch, a pocket timepiece with a mysterious design that is as mysterious Rei Ayanami herself. The watch features 3D image of Rei flanking the sides and the watch has a skeleton dial face and a second hand inspired by the Spear of Longinus.
The clip too, was inspired by the mythical spear while Spear of Cassius, as seen in Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance, is the inspiration of the carabiner of the attached chain.
The 3D elements are what make this pocket watch stood out. Man, it just look so good. Rounding up the package is a mechanical movement, a skeletal back adorned with NERV logo, and the serial number of the watch.
The EVA x U-Treasure Rei Ayanami Pocket Watch is, as the product name implies, a collaborative product with Japanese contemporary jewelry maker, U-Treasure.
As mentioned in the beginning, it is a thing of luxury. It can be had for a grand 363,000 yen (which works out to be around US$3,300) from evastore.jp as well as on u-treasure-onlineshop.jp where you can find a bunch of other Evangelion-themed jewelries.
