Cool Stuff: Pac-Man Watch
I love videogame fashion that doesn’t overdo the geekeyness, while I sport it. Not that I have anything wrong with geek-wear, in fact I have quite a few gaming shirts and other attire that I dress up in. But sometimes I don’t want to blind people with my dorkyness and I find as I get older — I want things a little more subtle.
This watch is a perfect example. As you can tell, this limited edition ticker has a class look to it, but if one were to inspect closer, they would know it was from the great retro classic, Pac-Man. Not only is the yellow looking pizza guy on the watch, but displays his arch-nemesis the ghosts, Inky, Pinky and Clyde — trapped inside the ‘nest.’
What is really cool is as every second goes by, so does Pac-Man around the watch — eating pellets, a ghosts and whatever is in his way of destruction.
Although, Looking like a classy videogamer doesn’t come cheap. You can order one for $130 on clubnamco, but if you really want one, you should hurry. According to the site, it should be a collector’s item because only 500 of these beauties were made.
“This limited edition collectible timepiece commemorates one of the longest-running and most popular games in arcade history – PAC-MAN!
