Be the invisible envy of the next gaming convention or assassination expo with Tycho Brahe's invaluable time piece. It's a piece of gaming memorabilia worth killing for!
Enthusiast's Timepiece publicity blurb

The Enthusiast's Timepiece, also parsed as Enthusiast's Time Piece, is a promotional PDA weapon for the Spy. It is a golden watch with an image of Pac-Man eating a dot on it.

This weapon functions exactly the same way as the Invis Watch.

It is awarded to players of Poker Night at the Inventory for defeating Tycho during a round in which he has bought in with the item instead of cash.

Bugs

  • The Cloak meter displayed on the watch does not properly correspond to the actual amount of Cloak available, similar to Dead Ringer.[1]

Trivia

  • When Tycho first shows the watch to Gabe, the co-star of the Penny Arcade webcomic, Gabe kills Tycho to obtain it. The watch has since changed hands repeatedly through the characters murdering each other.[2] [3]
  • The Cloak meter emulates the Pac-Man derived logo commonly seen worn on Gabe's shirt[4] as well as a tattoo on his arm.[5]
  • The version of the watch presented in Poker Night at the Inventory is stained with blood on the left of its face. However, the version obtained in Team Fortress 2 does not have blood.
    • If the Heavy wins the Enthusiast's Timepiece he announces to the table; "I will put this in my box of things I collect from dead enemies."
