August 26, 2021

New Delhi, August 26, 2021: Casio India, the leading watch brand announced the release of a limited edition watch from its fashion-forward Vintage range featuring the world famous game, PAC-MAN. The effervescent model A100WEPC is based on the recent reissue of the F-100 digital watch, which was originally released in 1978.

Both, Casio watches and PAC-MAN have been an integral part of our lives for over forty years and introducing a collaboration between these two legends, celebrates the timelessness of the brands.

The watch’s playful design evokes an arcade-game worldview. 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 styling is designed to induce 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 colour 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.

The watch comes with special packaging imprinted with PAC-MAN character icons and the game score screen, to deliver the full look of the PAC-MAN game.
