Space Invaders Watch


How many people remember playing Space Invaders on an actual arcade machine? Well I do! I don't remember how old I was (probably 9), but I remember once a week my parents would take my brother and I out for ice cream, and the Italian Gelateria (ice cream parlour) we would frequent, had a cocktail cabinet space invaders machine. After my first game, I was addicted, and every week I got one opportunity to take on the evil forces trying to invade. I remember how my heart would pound as I could hear the marching armies steps grow quicker, there was something so simple and yet so menacing. Compared to today's gaming, it was such a different experience, sitting on the edge of the seat, hunching yourself over the screen, moving you're body from side to side, with hopes that all you're extra body movements would translate into more dead aliens. It was a simpler time....

What better way to signify the simpler times of a by gone era, then to produce a tribute Space Invaders timepiece. Thanks to TAITO Corporation, who have officially licensed Romain Jerome, the Space Invaders watch has become a reality. Limited to a run of 78 Black/White (glow in the dark) pieces, and 78 Color pieces, I'm sure these will sell out fast, no matter what the price is (no pricing available). For more detailed specifications visit the Romain Jerome websight. Until them check these out...
