Romain Jerome Hits New Highs with Super Mario Watch
Romain Jerome launches a limited edition watch to pay homage to everyone’s favorite childhood game Super Mario.
Swiss edgy-luxury watchmaker RJ-Romain Jerome celebrates the Super Mario 30th anniversary with a limited edition Super Mario Bros timepiece collection.
Released in 1985, Super Mario is one of the most iconic Nintendo games ever created and has made appearances in more than 200 editions throughout the years.
Cased in a 46-mm black PVD-coated titanium case, RJ has brilliantly incorporated the pixelated Mario figure, complete with his famous red and blue overalls along with the mushroom ‘growth supplement’ icon, on the dial.
The time-only watch is powered by a mechanical self-winding movement and bears some noteworthy features including the power reserve of 42 hours and a water resistance of 30 meters. Basically this is what Switzerland thinks is a dress watch for Silicon Valley and follows up on RJ’s other geek-chic pieces such as the Pac Man and Space Invaders timepieces.
The RJ x Super Mario Bros watch comes with black rubber strap that is furnished with what the press release calls the “grainy-textured interior of stellar-patterned” with black PVD-coated steel folding clasp.
This timepiece is limited to only 85 (a reference to the year 1985 of course) pieces at a retail price of US$18,950.
