Hyderabad: Vintage classics seem to be making a comeback in every sector. Japanese electronics maker that is famous for its calculators and digital watches has combined two digital classics of the 70s and 80s.
Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced the release of the A100WEPC, a collaboration model featuring the iconic Pac-Man game that is popular around the world and the recent reissue of the F-100 digital watch, which was originally released in 1978.
“The Pac-Man arcade game was first released in 1980 by Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. (then Namco), and it has countless fans around the world. The F-100 watch was released in 1978 and was the first Casio quartz watch in a resin case, delivering advanced functionality with a stopwatch, digital alarm, and calendar functions,” the company said in a release.
The new A100WEPC watch is based on the recently released A100 watch, which reprises the design of the original F-100, including the unique four-button front layout. The styling is designed to evoke the fun, retro look of the Pac-Man game. The watch face features colorful pixelated PAC-MAN and ghost characters, and the center illuminator logo is rendered using the Pac-Man font. The face design faithfully replicates the PAC-MAN game screen, down to details like the pink line marking the exit of the nest from which the ghosts emerge. The gold-plated watch case is inspired by the color of the Pac-Man arcade game cabinet, Casio informed.
