Back in July, Casio had revealed a new collaborative watch model in honour of the long-time game franchise, Pac-Man. Called the A100WEPC, the special Casio Vintage watch will be heading into Malaysia very soon according to the brand’s long-time distributor in Malaysia, Marco Corporation.
As noted in our previous report, Pac-Man is prominently featured throughout the watch. Even its gold-plated case was not a random choice, as it was meant to represent the colour of the Pac-Man arcade game cabinet.
Not only that, the Pac-Man motif on the watch’s top band actually showed the world-famous character being chased by ghosts. The situation was then reversed for its bottom band.
While the date of the watch’s arrival in our market is not known at the moment, Marco has organised a raffle for its G-Factory and G-Shock Stores across the country. The registration for this raffle, which involves 100 units, is already open for registration and will last until 12 September.
For those who prefer to see the Casio Vintage x Pac-Man watch in person, you have to wait for it to arrive at your favourite Casio retailers at a later time though. Price-wise, the watch can be obtained for RM 499 which is an additional RM 100 to RM 200 on top of the retail price for a standard Casio Vintage A100 Series that it is based on.
