His 40 years, which the character deserves as round as a balloon and as yellow as a lemon from Bandai Namco, does not end with collaborations. It is once again on the wrist that he celebrates his life and work.

After RJ and Timex, Casio has the right to show the character created by Toru Iwatani in a knockout. The manufacturer announces the release of the A100WEPC, inspired by its famous F-100 quartz watch, published in the (excellent) year 1978, with a dial in the colors of Pac-Man.
The new A100WEPC clock is based on the re-entry A100 clock, adopting the design of the original F-100, including the unique four-button layout on the front. The model is reminiscent of the fun retro style of the PAC-MAN game. The dial is decorated with colorful pixels and PAC-MAN ghosts, and the central ILLUMINATOR logo is depicted in PAC-MAN font. The design of the dial faithfully reproduces the screen of the PAC-MAN game, right down to the details like the pink line marking the exit from the nest from which the ghosts emerge. The gold-plated watch case is inspired by the color of the terminal of the PAC-MAN arcade game. The upper bracelet of the watch is laser engraved with a depiction of PAC-MAN being chased by ghosts and, conversely, the scene of PAC-MAN chasing ghosts is depicted on the lower bracelet. The PAC-MAN logo and symbols are also located on the back of the housing.
Offered and expected in Japan for 12,100 yen (around 100 dollars), this watch with a weight of 53 grams – which unfortunately does not bring Pac-Man games onto the market – is expected for the month of August.
