As a fan of retro game stuff in general, I’m always on the lookout for cool Pac-Man/Space Invaders/Robotron 2084 stuff. Unfortunately, retro game gear isn’t usually very understated. When it comes to watches, I’m more of an old-school guy, but even if I were into cool new watches, I’d probably skip this one.
I’ll tell you what, though. Make a sweet Tempest or Gyruss watch and I’ll eat it up. No need to change anything, just design a display that looks like one of the levels! The ship could spin round the outside and shoot baddies every minute. Now that I’d buy.
Thinking of those games reminds me of these great long exposures of ‘em. The Gyruss bonus round is trippy and that Tempest one is actually quite beautiful.
