Watch label Romain Jerome prepares to drop its 'Pac-Man' Level III watch, marking its third timepiece inspired by the classic arcade game. This is another tribute to the famous video game, but it also explores the label's playful spirit. The watch is emphasized by its black dial, which is reflective with a mirror-polished finish. The titanium bezel shows a visual of a maze where Pac-Man hunts for fruit and Pac-Dots. This is constructed from 27 components all crafted by hand and separated into three different levels on the dial.
The standout feature are the raised walls of the device that are complete with black lacquer to further enhance the three-dimensional effect. The Pac-Man Level III watch is encased in a 46 mm titanium case that has an automated rewinding movement to allow wearers to read time from the middle of the piece. For visual contrast, there is a blue rubber strap wrapping around the black case and additional blue accents on the dial. The watch is limited to only 80 units and will be available in June.
