Luxury watchmaker RJ-Romain Jerome celebrates 30 years of Super Mario Bros. with a video game-themed timepiece

With a long list of watches crafted in tribute of generational icons — Pac-Man and Batman to name a few — it's no surprise the all-time classic Nintendo game Super Mario Bros. is next. Featuring 8-bit caricatures of the game's most iconic elements — the signature cloud, bush, power-up mushroom and overall-clad Mario himself — the watch transcribes the game's signature aesthetic details onto a 46mm case.

This Super Mario Bros. timepiece seamlessly combines traditional Swiss craftsmanship with a lighthearted re-creation of a pop culture icon — marking a groundbreaking oeuvre in the luxury sphere. With an automatic movement, it also features the game's 3D playing field and enamelled figures. Limited to 85 pieces in honour of the game's launch in 1985, ardent Mario fans need to get moving.

The Super Mario Bros. timepiece is available in a limited edition batch of 85 pieces and is available at The Hour Glass boutiques.
