View Full Version : Most ridiculous watches you own

This is an anti-bragging thread for the most ridiculous / stupid digital watches you own.

I'll start off with:

A 'talking clock' Pokemon watch and a Furby watch which is technically a game watch as it has two (terrible) games on it. Both run off a CR2032 and have actual membrane speakers in them for sample playback and dot matrix displays for the (terrible) animations.

What's your worst watches? :D

HI Haku.

Cool thread!
So much potential for grid displays like those but they use them for animations instead.
A watch with a grid lcd display and some cool games (like the GCE Game Time (http://gamewatchguys.com/game_watch_details.php?watchid=23&wo=)) would be awesome. Maybe centipede, pacman, space invaders, pong, retro games like that...

With today's technology a small watch like the size of the original Pac-man, and about 10 different games on an lcd grid display with micro joystick and 2 fire buttons. It would be insanely AWESOME!

...Here' a few of mine that qualify as anti-brag, or "What the hell was I thinking!?!?"

I have that Street Fighter II & XBox watches also, I've seen the Power Rangers watch on eBay a lot but haven't managed to persuade myself to get one even though it's a game watch because Power Rangers are terrible! :D

I got my brother a Casio CA-53W calculator watch for a christmas present, he loves Back to the Future and has a few collectibles, Marty wore a CA-53W in the 2nd & 3rd films, in the 1st film he wore a CA-50 which become very rare as it was quickly superseded by the CA-53W.

As for a dot matrix watch with a joystick you can play games on, the OnHand PC comes close - http://www.pconhand.com/onhandpc.asp

Yea but you have to get the street fighter watch game! Hadouken!!! LOL. Remember the horribly awesome street fighter movie with Van Damme? I always felt I knew karate after a good Van Damme movie.

All the ones i thought that were ridiculous were either trade some time ago or some few are for sale/trade on my web site.

But if you want a "what the hell ??" watch, go here:

And here's another ridiculous because it doesn't play music: (but would have been cool if it did)

Earlier this year The Gadget Show here in the UK did some testing of watches, while they were out on tour, this time in the US :)

In the final test they tried to see if any were bulletproof...! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pj-JUAHccU

Hi Sly.
Loved the video. The bulletproof watch was really big also!

That super big watch at $209, ...Would make a crazy Christmas present.

LOL!!! I think that the Burger Time was confused John more than i think...:) It was Haku who put the link of the bullet-watches video. ;)

Oh and Haku, thanks very much for the pictures of the Waltham Star Trek 2 and Imado Pac-Man that you put on HHM forum! :D
