The Haute Horlogerie piece of this drop is the TAG Heuer Formula 1 X Mario Kart Limited Edition (Chronograph Tourbillon), limited to only 250 pieces.
The slightly larger 45-mm case is made of high-performance grade 5 titanium, projecting a sporty yet refined look, which mixes fine-brushed and polished finishings. The crown and pushers are fine-brushed steel, and the screwed-down case back is grade 5 titanium with a custom sapphire glass featuring the Mario Kart logo, through which TAG Heuer’s high precision COSC-certified Calibre Heuer 02T movement can be fully appreciated. The case back is engraved with XXX/250.
The black polished ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale up to 400 km/h includes the Mario Kart logo in white Super-LumiNova® at the top right. The 2 o’clock pusher and crown are circled with red lacquer with the M symbol of Mario also highlighted on the top of the crown.
The dial is a sophisticated skeletonized black with an iconic red contrasting lines along the cutouts, adding depth and energy to the watch’s face, and a matching central hands and 60-second or minute scale on the flange.
The tri-compax layout showcases two grained chronograph sub-counters at 3 and 9 o’clock, with the tourbillon centered at 6 o’clock. At 12 o’clock, a gearwheel echoes the rims on racecar tires. The tourbillon cage with alternate finishings and circled with Super-LumiNova® was fully redesigned to showcase Mario in his kart, the Spiny Shell and Bullet Bill moving in rhythm with the complication.
