HI.
I am guessing it might just be an add or drawing. I hope it would be real! :D

Hi folks!

Just registered and will introduce myself later on.

This watch simply doesn't exists (fake), it was a promotional card from Namco that was given to people at the 2009 SDCC (San Diego Comic Con)
that you could fold it and wear it as a fake watch. Here's the description of the card i brought on Ebay back in Sept.2009:

This is an auction for the ultra rare 2009 SDCC San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Namco Pac-Man Fold-Up Promo Watch (fits kids and adults). There has been a little confusion from a couple of buyers who thought that this was a real watch. This is a fake promotional fold-up watch made of high gloss vinyl paper stock. You fold it up according to the size that you want and wear it around on your wrist. This is just a promotional item that the people at the Namco booth were giving out to promote there store. Again, this watch is not real, it is a fold together watch made of a flat piece of paper/cardboard.

I'll make scans of the card in a couple of days because it is still packed under a lot of boxed in the closet. I'll post the pics once i finally dug it. :)

Here's the scans at 300 DPI of the SDCC 2009 Pac-Man promo card:

Ah Fudge! Files are too big, ok i'll resize them (half-size):

2122

If anyone wants the original scan size, let me know. :)

Err..what happened ?! The scans are so small (like thumbnails), i'll pack the two scans and put
it on my web site to download.
