Casio has just announced the release of the finest damned watch in Christendom, a Pac-Man-themed A100WEPC! As you’ll recall, this is the same watch Ripley wore in Alien and now it has a full Pac-Man treatment that is so complete and lovely that I might just cry.

From the 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 font. The face design faithfully replicates the PAC-MAN game screen, down to details like the pink line marking the exit of the ghost nest from which the ghosts emerge. The gold-plated watch case is inspired by the color of the PAC-MAN arcade game cabinet. The top watch band is laser etched with a rendering of PAC-MAN being chased by ghosts, and the reverse scene with PAC-MAN chasing ghosts is rendered on the bottom band. The case back also features the PAC-MAN logo and icons.

I mean come on!

This is probably the coolest collab I’ve seen in a while and I’m definitely going to pick one of these up. Sadly, you can’t play Pac-Man on this guy but you can always pick up a Nelsonic Game Watch from the 1980s to swap this guy out with.
You can pick it up here.
