Despite the fact that I wear an Apple Watch most days, there are still times where I’d rather wear a watch with a bit more style and a good old analog dial. One of these sweet limited edition Super Mario Bros. wristwatches needs to find its way into my collection.
They come to us from Japanese watch maker WIRED (not to be confused with the magazine of the same name) and feature fun pixel art designs based on the classic 8-bit Nintendo platformer.
There are two styles available, including a black watch face with a subtle coin pattern and a silver plumber’s pipe, as well as a vibrant and colorful scene taken straight from the game’s World 1-1. They’re both pretty neat, though I prefer the more vibrant blue watch personally.
Each watch has a scene of Mario taking on King Koopa (er, Bowser) on back, along with limited edition numbering, while the crown has a star marking on it. They feature stainless steel 37mm cases, a battery-powered quartz movement, and are waterproof to 10 ATM. Hopefully, that’s enough to survive those underwater levels.
Both watches are expected to drop on September 8, 2017 for ¥18,000 (~$165 USD) each. Keep your eyes out on the WIRED website for ordering details.
