CASIO PAC-MAN watch/Casio
(Tech Mainstream) Part of CASIO's Vintage watch collection, the Casio A100WEPC-1B PAC-Man watch ($99.95 USD) epitomizes 1980s arcade memories. According to Wikipedia, "Pac-Man is a maze action game developed and released by Namco for arcades in 1980." CASIO PAC-MAN Watch is a CASIO Vintage and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. collaboration.
The PAC-MAN watch is literally inundated with the PAC-MAN game related imagery- for instance, a black ion-plated metal band and watch glass details that hint at the exciting chase about to begin:
"The game begins above the watch face with PAC-MAN eating dots as he runs away from the ghosts and continues below the face after he’s devoured a Power Pellet and turned back to chase them."
The Pac-Man watch is available for pre-order. Shipment may be delayed until September 3, 2021.
