Galactic Defense Arcade Watch – retro asteroids fun on your wrist

galacticdefensearcadewatch2

Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be, that’s for sure. Back in the day, you’d get a full dosed version of the retros, complete with cheap chrome, dodgy materials and the like. Nowadays all you’re liable to find is a strange combination of analog and digital which does neither very well.

Good to see this Galactic Defense Arcade Watch then, with it’s unashamed uselessness paraded for everyone to see. You can’t play the game of Asteroids which it’s celebrating, good grief, let’s face it, you can barely tell the time on the thing, but who cares? Isn’t it beautiful?

We don’t need no stinking functionality when we’ve got a leather wrist band, and a set of almost, but not quite, functioning joystick and button controllers to gaze at. It’s the perfect gift to yourself to add to the kipper ties, acid dyed flares and the brown suede creepers. Priced at $49.95.
