CASIO VINTAEGE × PAC-MAN collaboration model!
CASIO has announced the " A100WEPC - PAC-MAN Collaboration Model ", which is a collaboration of Casio's digital watch " A100 " and " PAC-MAN "!
The "A100" is a reissue model that inherits the design of the "F-100," CASIO's first product with a resin case, which was released in 1978. It is a highly functional watch equipped with various functions such as a stopwatch and calendar.
Partial correction of the description of the functions on July 21 (Wed.).
I have seen many apparel and accessories collaborated with video games and animation works, and I have the impression that such collaborated products are usually stylish enough to be used in daily life.
However, this "Pac-Man" collaboration watch is designed with a playful spirit that fully expresses the sense of a retro game!
Case with arcade case motif
Based on the gadget-inspired "A100," which features four function buttons on the front, the gold-plated case is based on the motif of the Pac-Man arcade game case, expressing the cute, retro world of Pac-Man!
Faithful reproduction of the game screen!
The face is a representation of the Pac-Man game screen.
The ghost icons in the face are arranged following the action image corresponding to each color! If you look closely, you can see the red ghost of the "chase type," which is the one that is constantly chasing after Pac-Man, is looking at Pac-Man's back and chasing him.
Also, the pink line on the top of the LCD represents the starting point of the game, and you can tell that the game screen has been faithfully reproduced! The "ILLUMINATOR" logo is in the Pac-Man font.
As a fan, I am very happy to see such a detailed design that reflects the specifications of the game.
The band and back cover are also decorated!
The black band is also laser engraved.
The upper part shows Pac-Man running away from a ghost. The lower part shows Pac-Man chasing after the ghost, which has turned into a "teasing monster" after eating a power cookie! Pac-Man is in pursuit of the ghost.
Turn the case over and you will also find the game screen and the Pac-Man logo engraved on the back cover!
You can see that even the smallest details are well decorated.
The packaging is also specially designed!
The case is sold in original packaging featuring icons and logos of familiar characters and the game's score screen!
The inner box is designed to resemble an arcade cabinet, allowing you to fully enjoy the world of the game.
