CASIO and Netflix join forces for a collaboration model A120WEST inspired by the highly acclaimed series, Stranger Things. Stranger Things is a Netflix mystery adventure series set in 1980’s small-town America.
In 1983, a young boy vanishes into thin air from a sleepy American mid-west town. As friends, family, and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top secret experiments, terrifying supernatural forces, and one very strange little girl. A love letter to the 80’s classics that captivated a generation.
The new watch design was inspired by Stranger Things, a show with plenty of references to 1980’s culture. Based on the A120, a watch inspired by digital watches CASIO released in the 1980’s, the design pays homage to the ‘Upside Down’, an alternate dimension that exists in parallel to the human world.
The watch face depicts the world of the Stranger Things characters, with pop, colourful front buttons reminiscent of the 1980’s with a Demogorgon appearing at the centre, as he appears in the human world. When the LED light button is pressed, the show name is revealed printed upside down, implying the presence of another world on the other side. The back of the case and translucent band are designed with eerie tentacles stretching out from the underworld, evoking the connection between the two worlds.
The Stranger Things x CASIO A120WEST are set to release this month June 2022. You can register your interest through casiowatches.com.au. To stay up to date, make sure you sign up to our newsletter. For other CASIO features, please click here.
