Geeky watches seem to be all the rage in the high end timepiece market. First we saw Nixon kick off a Star Wars line followed soon after by Devonworks’ full-on Dark Side watch. Now, Romain Jerome has the perfect gift for the old school video game fan with a naked wrist: the RJ X Super Mario Bros. watch!Part of the Generational Icons line from the company, the $18,950 timepiece features tiny, mid-jump Mario, a mushroom, and other design elements like a bush and cloud. The piece is limited to just 85 pieces as a nice nod to 1985, the year Super Mario Bros. debuted in Japan on the Famicom home video game system. The Generational Icons line also includes watches based on other classic video games like Tetris, Pac-Man, and Space Invaders, plus Batman.

Located in Geneva, Switzerland Romain Jerome was founded in 2004 and developed the DNA of Famous Legends concept which oftentimes incorporates elements from the thing or place being immortalized in their watches. In other words, their Eyjafjallajökull piece actually has elements taken from the volcano of the same name located in Iceland.

The Famicom debuted in Japan in 1983, but bowed in the United States as the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985. Eventually, Super Mario Bros. became the defacto game as it was included with the system on a double bill with Duck Hunt. Mario and his brother Luigi became the company’s icons and most recognizable faces to the point where they and their co-stars have headlined a variety of games for every subsequent system from the Super Nintendo up through the WiiU.
