As some of you watch connoisseurs may be aware, Romain Jerome is a fine watch manufacturer that develops wristwatches for rich people. After all, nothing says "I make way more money than you," like a handmade watch crafted from crocodile skin, parts of the original Apollo 11 space shuttle, ISS spacesuit fibres, and actual moon dust. It seems as though the watchmaker has grown somewhat bored with putting out hilariously over the top watches and has instead chosen to do something different.
For just under $20K (!), you can own your very own handmade watch based off of Super Mario Bros. There are only 85 pieces being produced – a reference to the game's launch year – and the 46mm display showcases three dimensional, enameled versions of Mario, a bush, a cloud, and a Super Mushroom. The watch is being released before the end of the year, to coincide with Mario's 30th anniversary.
