This huge watch was found during a house cleaning. Well i can imagine the finder must have wondered about the previous owners of the house 🙂

The total length, from buckle to the end of the other band, is around 90 cm or 3 feet. Slightly too big for my wrist i guess… look at the wrist watch next to it.

After taking a closer look it appeared to be a radio in a wrist watch shape. The case with crystal, lugs, a crown, hands and dial are shaped exactly like a watch. Even the strap is made of real leather and has stitching on the sides. Both strap ends are attached with a removable pin and it even comes with a buckle.

The radio is AM only and operates on a 9 volt battery. The crown is used as on/off switch and as volume control. The hour and minute hand are actually only one hand that indicates the frequency of the radio. Via a center knob in the middle the radio can be tuned to different radio stations.

  1. Good eye for detail, George! It looks like the TV of Captain Kirk in Startrek 🙂
    Scotty beam me up…

  2. The last pictures caption should have said “There’s always time for another song”. 😉
