Timex India is celebrating the 40th anniversary of PAC-MAN arcade games, with an expanded release of the Timex T80 x PAC-MAN watch. Just as PAC-MAN revolutionized the gaming world in the 1980s, Timex shook up digital watchmaking around the same time when it introduced some of the first digital watches for mass production, marking a turning point both in timekeeping and the future of wristwatch design. To celebrate these two icons of that era and PAC-MAN’s 40th anniversary, we’re introducing a special edition of our T80 that features PAC-MAN right on the watch face. Following the sold-out release of the T80 PAC-MAN™ watch at ComplexCon and timex.com last year, Timex is now making the watch available in India on Amazon.in during Prime Day 2020 to meet international demand and build upon the watch’s first-outing success.
According to Ajay Dhyani, Head- Marketing and E-Commerce of Timex India, “The Timex T80 PAC-MAN collection has received a phenomenal response globally and we are now thrilled to announce its entry in India.”
“With this launch, Timex, known for introducing digital watches to the masses and for its youth appeal, is celebrating the 40th anniversary of PAC-MAN, one of the world’s most well-known arcade games. Amazon’s wide reach in India will further ensure that the launch is made accessible to more customers across the country”, said Mr. Arun Sirdeshmukh, Business Head at Amazon Fashion.
This T80 watch features PAC-MAN right on the dial, along with other special touches on the case back and bracelet clasp. The watch also packs all the capabilities one would normally expect from a Timex T80, such as an alarm, stopwatch, date display and INDIGLO backlight; it even plays the iconic PAC-MAN™ melody with retro flair to spare, making for a well-rounded timepiece that wears just as well in 2020 as it has since the heyday of arcade gaming.
