    What do people make of this article - it's about the new limited edition Romain Jerome Space Invader watch.

    I think it's looks bizarre and sounds expensive - but will people buy them? Any opinions?

    Love the dial, hate the case. The moving "lander legs" from the Moon Invader case are ridiculous and turn the watch into a terrible monstrosity.

    Will they sell? Of course. They are only making a handful of them, people gobble that stuff up.

    Freaky and not a collector's item.
    Kind regards

    I've got to say, I dig the RJ Titanic watches. This is kind of cool in the "I would never wear it, maybe if it were a gift" kind of way.

    Will it sell?? Yes, very quicky.

    Would I buy? I do not think so. I see myself as having some degree of taste!

    Very eccentric looking design. Might appeal to some segment of the population.

    Wow...designs are really getting over the top. This is a bit too "out there".

    I mean it's almost like something out of a dream...just think about it..."so I was sitting there waiting for the bus...and the bus was taking forever...I look at my watch and all of a sudden it becomes a 'Space Invaders' video game".

    What are these designers smoking?

    It wasn't enough to have a licensing agreement with the creators of the game, they had to incorporate pieces of moonrock and fragments of the Apollo 11 space capsule too. They would have sold a ton just with the game tie-in alone...but I guess that would make it less of a collector's item...
