Casio launches new version of classic watch based on Pac-Man | Digital Trends Spanish

The clock of Super Mario Bros. Tag Heuer is not the only one related to video games that is presented these days. Casio has his own based on the classic Pac-man and designed in conjunction with Bandai Namco, the company that owns the rights to the franchise.

This new watch is based on the Casio F-100, which was precisely relaunched not many days ago in pursuit of nostalgia. The F-100 has all the functions of a classic watch with a stopwatch, alarm, calendar, light and front buttons below the small screen; this version of Pac-Man keeps all of them and only changes the aesthetic part.

Not only the front face of the watch is adorned with Pac-Man and the ghosts, but also the metal strap on which the labyrinth itself is engraved.

Now, the most important thing about these devices is the price. And regarding that, Casio has not yet spoken but we must consider that the F-100 in its most standard version will go on sale for $ 90. It is possible that the company wants to charge a little more expensive for this watch given its characteristics, but it should be taken for granted that it costs as expensive as the Tag Heuer watch that rose above $ 2,000.

These watches vintage or classics, yes, they fulfill a nostalgic function and for many even aesthetics, but their operation is clearly limited compared to smart watches, in addition to the fact that you can always see the time on one of the most massive devices in society, such as the mobile phones. And despite the above, retro objects always find their place in our collections.
