Mario Kart is a way of life. Whether it’s on SNES, N64, Wii or Switch, the Italian plumber and his coterie of colourful friends have occupied our attention as they smack each other with bananas since 1992. The choice to pay homage to this iconic racing game with one of Tag Heuer Replica Watches raciest chronographs is inspired.
Tag Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Chronograph
The Tag Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Chronograph Replica has a 44mm diameter case made of stainless steel with a shiny black ceramic, tachymeter bezel. There are also red lacquer lines around the pusher at 2 o’clock and the crown in reference to Mario’s signature colour. However, the most obvious reference is the M logo emblazoned on the crown itself.
Of course, the Mario theme continues in force across the watch’s dial. It features a finish line checkerboard pattern and Mario himself sits in his kart at the top of the small seconds subdial. Additionally, several date numerals have been replaced with items and symbols that will be instantly recognisable to players.
On the back of the watch, you’ll find a commemorative caseback bearing an engraving of Mario in his kart along with the game’s logo. Underneath said caseback is the Cheap Tag Heuer Replica Calibre 16 automatic chronograph movement. It’s based on the ETA 7750 and has a power reserve of 42-hours.
Tag Heuer Formula 1 x Mario Kart Chronograph Tourbillon
The Most Exquisite Luxury Tag Heuer Replica Watches has a slightly larger case than the regular chrono version at 45mm, making it a substantial chunk of metal. Fortunately, it’s made of super lightweight titanium so it shouldn’t be too uncomfortable on the wrist. The case is completed by a black ceramic bezel with a tachymeter that can be used to calculate speeds of up to 400km/h, which means it can actually keep up with F1 cars.
As for the dial, the tourbillon is more complex than its counterpart as it’s partially skeletonised with a gear wheel design at 12 o’clock and the titular tourbillon on display at 6 o’clock. Naturally, the Tag Heuer Replica Swiss Made doesn’t escape the Mario-ification with its three spokes featuring Mario with a bullet bill and the infamous spiny blue shell in perpetual chase. If the plumber’s in first place, he won’t be for long.
Powering the tourbillon is the Cheap Tag Heuer Replica Calibre Heuer 02T COSC, an automatic movement with a 65-hour power reserve. It’s visible through the exhibition sapphire caseback, unlike the solid caseback on the regular edition there’s no Mario engraving here but the game’s logo is still present.
