There’s nothing that says retro quite like a Mario Casio watch. Combining two icons of the past that are still sticking around today, this new design takes inspiration from Mario’s 8-bit adventures for a timepiece you won’t want to take off your wrist.
As part of the iconic Casio G-Shock range, this plastic fantastic Mario watch is waterproof, shock-resistant, and, we assume, shell-proof too. With an 8-bit Mario on the strap, a classic Koopa shell on the digital clock face, and a blue background to match the serene sky of the Super Mario Bros. world, it’s a fancy little thing that is sure to turn a few heads in any situation.
Funnily enough, this isn’t the only Mario watch made available this year, with Tag Huer creating a pair of old-school timepieces adorned with Mario Kart insignias earlier this year. However, it should be said that the Casio alternative is much more affordable, available at a price point of around £129/€150/$150 rather than the astronomical price of the Tag Huer Mario Kart watches. Maybe they should be Mario Galaxy watches instead, as you would seemingly have to sell a small planet to afford one.
Where can I get the Mario Casio watch?
You can pick up the Mario Casio G-shock watch via the G-shock website when it goes on sale on November 8. That’s just a week away, so be sure to bookmark the page ready for the time of release.
