Casio has developed a Pac-Man themed watch in collaboration with Bandai Namco, the developer of the Pac-Man game that was in the hearts of millions in the 70s and 80s. This watch, bearing the model name A100WEPC, is the one Casio launched in 1978. Based on the F-100 digital clock.
In the F-100 model, which contains the highest technology you can carry on your arm in the 70s, stopwatch, digital alarm and calendar were available. Also known as the first timepiece with a resin case, one of the things that makes the F-100 one of the most famous watches is probably the fact that it was used by Ripley and other characters in the 1979 movie Alien.
Pac-Man and ghost details in many parts of the watch
Having a 4-button design like the F-100, the A100WEPC features Pac-Man and ghostly characters, while the Pac-Man font is used in the illuminating logo in the middle. Besides these great details Pac-Man game screen is animated on the dial. A Pac-Man being chased by ghosts is laser engraved on the upper part of the watch’s band, while the same scene is featured on the lower part of the band. The watch is sent to the customer in a package equipped with Pac-Man characters and game score screen.
This is not the first time Casio has included the Pac-Man theme in a model. Japanese manufacturer, Timex T80 x Pac-Man model also embroidered Pac-Man details. However, Casio’s combination of the Pac-Man theme with a watch from that time seems to attract the attention of those who love the game much more.
The base model AW100WE, with Pac-Man details, appeared last month. The model, which has features such as a stopwatch, daily alarm, hourly time signal, automatic calendar and LED light, was launched in Japan in August. Expected to go on sale for $110
