I’m old enough to remember when there were only a few decent arcade games out there, and when I say arcade games I mean video games that you could play down at your local amusement arcade or travelling fairground.
There was Defender, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Scramble and then there was…… Space Invaders!!
Atari’s classic console changed everything with its huge cartridges and virtually non-moving joystick and one of their first games was a pretty decent version of Space Invaders. I can remember thinking this is so cool, I can play this game and I don’t have to keep putting money into the thing either!
Time goes fast, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t stop and take alook back ever now and then and as a ‘homage’ to that classic videogame, THE watchmaker Timex has just released the Timex x Space Invaders T80 Watch.
These cool watches have an awesome retro feel and feature the pixelated alien ‘invaders’ and the unforgettable electronic soundtrack, recognised around the world. For me are a beautiful reminder of a simpler time when there was no iPhones, Amazon echos, smart doorbells or even the internet!
Available in silver, gold & black, for more info on the Timex x Space Invaders T80 Watch visit Timex.co.uk, RRP: £85.
