The second and much-anticipated installment of the TAG Heuer x Nintendo partnership is revealed in the form of two collector limited-edition TAG Heuer Formula 1 chronographs celebrating Mario Kart.

After kicking off their partnership in 2021 with the TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario Limited Edition which quickly became a must-have among fans, the Swiss luxury watchmaker and Nintendo are back with two limited-edition mechanical watches this year, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Limited Editions (Chronograph and Chronograph Tourbillon).

Fans of the energetic, intrepid Super Mario will recognize their favorite character taking over one of TAG Heuer’s emblematic collections, fittingly dedicated to racing. The two never-seen-before designs were achieved through close collaboration between the TAG Heuer and Nintendo teams to customize every detail of these pieces. The watches highlight the common themes shared by the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection and the Mario Kart series: adrenaline, speed, competitiveness, all the way to victory.

“We are excited to reveal the two latest pieces born from our collaboration with Nintendo. The TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Limited Editions (Chronograph and Chronograph Tourbillon) expertly mix fun gaming references that will delight fans of Mario Kart around the world, with refined and high performing timekeeping.” explains 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 two timepieces are designed for lovers of fine watchmaking who have kept their fresh, fun outlook on life.”
