Rare Space Invaders Watches Turn Up in Japan

This highly-collectible Space Invaders LED watch came out a couple of years back in Japan, but I certainly could never find a place to buy one. Until now.

I was hunting around looking for something entirely different when I spotted these limited-edition Invaders’ watches over at Japan’s ebten for ¥18,690 (appx. $207 USD).

The watch features an red dot-matrix display of the current time. With a press of the button, “Space Invaders” scrolls across the display, then a giant animated invader dances across the screen. And when it’s done, it’s “Game Over”, man. And before you start asking, the answer is “No,” you can’t actually play the game, so your score is permanently set to 240 points.

Only 500 of these extremely hard-to-find watches were ever made, so you better head on over to ebten with your Yen and your Japanese to English dictionary in hand if you want one before they all vanish.
