The TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Chronometer is priced at $4,300.
Luxury Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer has partnered with Nintendo for the second time with a limited-edition Mario Kart watch.
We are talking about watches of the Formula 1 series, created in the amount of 3 thousand copies, as well as tourbillon chronographs in the amount of 250 copies.
“The TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Limited Editions expertly mix fun gaming references that will delight fans of Mario Kart around the world, with refined and high performing timekeeping,” says Frédéric Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer. “The spirit of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was the perfect match for mechanical Mario Kart limited editions, thanks to its modern and playful personality, driven by speed and friendly competition.”
The TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Limited Edition Chronograph features an automatic Caliber 16 chronograph movement in a 44mm steel case. The dial is emblazoned with the Mario Kart logo, and on the crown is the “M” symbol. In addition, the main game character is depicted on the small second hand. The watch has a date window at the three o'clock position, which instead of the date displays various bonuses from the cult game every day.
The TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Limited Edition Chronograph Tourbillon is presented in a Grade 5 titanium case with a crown and steel pushers. A 60-second tourbillon is displayed on the watch face at six o'clock, with Mario and other elements of the game at the center.
Both models are already on sale through TAG Heuer. The TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Limited Edition retails for $4,300, while the Tourbillon version costs $25,600.
