1980s Arcade Wristwatch

Reviewed by

This is the watch inspired by the classic arcade games of the 1980s that tracks the time with two asteroids and a spacecraft.
Its face enclosed by a miniature cabinet that bears all the nostalgic design elements of its full-sized forebears (including a non-functioning joystick), this watch pays homage to the space battle games that once lined the walls of arcade parlors.

It marks the hour with a large asteroid, the minute with a smaller asteroid, and the seconds with a classically simplistic triangular ship that orbits around the faces center.
Although harmless to alien ships and celestial bodies, a press of the button does yield the familiar pew sound of a fully functioning energy weapon of the era while lighting up each hour marker.

Miyota movement provides stellar timekeeping.
Black 1″ leather band fits wrists between 7 3/4″-10″ circumference.
Case 2 1/4″ H x 1 1/2″ W x 1″ D. (3 oz.)
