Some accessories and pieces of clothing from film and television have gone down in history and have become treasured objects for fans. From the mythical Marty slippers in Back to the Future II, even sunglasses or Neo’s mobile phone in Matrix. Ripley’s watches in the saga Alien they are also one of those pieces.
And now, Casio will once again sell the watch that Ellen Ripley, played by the great Sigourney Weaver, wore in the first movie of Alien, released in 1979 and directed by Ridley Scott. It is a modified version of the classic Casio F – 100 watch that was used for the film, which has been renamed the Casio A100 in this release.
What made this watch special at the time was that the buttons that controlled its functions were located on the front of the watch, rather than on its sides, giving it a more advanced or, again, futuristic look. For that reason he was chosen by those in charge of the production of the film’s costume set.
The new A100 has a bracelet metal and maintains an LCD screen, similar to the original model. It also comes in a gold version and even a Pac-Man inspired model. Its price is 90 dollars and it will be available from the month of August. Coincidentally, recently Seiko too relaunched watch model that Ripley used in another of his movies, Aliens 1986.
