    Back when I was 5 or 6 years old I saved the HUGE $45 cash price of this very interesting watch that I bought. It is a 1980 Netsonic Pac-Man watch that tells time, date, day of the week, and on the face, has a fully playable game of Pac-Man. The 4-direction joystick is on the lower right of the watch face. I'm not sure of the rarity of these watches, but I sure am proud of mine. The watch will drain a battery in about a month and a half or so. I was wondering if a World Record score exists for this device, and if not, can I set one? It is difficult for my crappy digital camera to take up-close detailed photos, but I tried. Right now it has no battery in it.

    Ya I had this watch in early 80's. I remember it having extra coloured joysticks which fit
    into the hole in the round direction key on the face. If I remember correct, there
    was something on the band which allowed to carry these additional joysticks.
    Did yours have this too?

    Yup! Exact same watch. I lost all the joysticks many, many years ago but the base part still works perfectly. It's awesome to know that someone else out there had the same watch because I can't find any information about it online at all. I paid close to $45 for mine when I was about 6 or 7 years old and it took me a long time to save up that much money. Do you remember how much you paid for yours?
    This is too cool.

    I have a space invaders watch, i'll try to get some photos of it, thats if I can go to my parents house and try to find it.

    It should still be there somewhere.

    I didn't know they even made game watches in 1980! That's very cool and I imagine it's worth quite a bit more than what you bought it for. I owned only 1 game watch as a kid, it was WWF Superstars from 1990.

    Here's a pic and a video of my reviewing it:

    I like the watches. It's pretty cool if you think about the technology available at the time.
    I usually just play pacman online.
    I never had a watch like that, I had one of the calculator watches.
    You watch is much better!
    :D :)

    I might be interested in selling my pac-man watch if the right money is offered.... Hey, I might even trade it for a working 360!

    just won the ghost version on ebay. awesome! like everyone else, i need joysticks. anyone know if there's a joystick version w sound and an earlier joystick version without sound? i don't think that's the case, but i wonder. i know about the ghost face and the pac man face. i also know about the button version. i have heard earlier (1980) joystick versions (as opposed to later, 1984) joystick versions don't have any sounds... pics to follow to be sure! loved this watch in middle school!
