It’s Time for the Pac-Man Watch

While I never was able to get my hands on an Omega watch like the astronauts, I have been able to fulfill another childhood watch dream in the form of Pac-Man watched. I have owned three of them over the years of varying types, but I have never owned this one by Paxxon. Heck, I have never even seen one in person despite always keeping an eye out for it. Who would have thought that a watch made by Greyhound would be so sought after?

Ads for it ran in both comic books and magazines back in the early to mid-eighties. The one above is the non-comic book one that I was less familiar with…

Did anyone out there own one? Does it not have a minute hand?
