Watch The Watch - President Bush Gets Swiped by Albanian Gypsies

Watch The Watch - President Bush Gets Swiped by Albanian Gypsies
I know they are denying this happened but watch the video and come to your own conclusion. Probably just some Casio anyway, can't imagine this guy wearing anything of interest.

It's a horological mystery...

Timetravelphile



A scene from Terry Giliam's great film of time-travelling midgets, Time Bandits. A short clip where Satan discusses the key to enlightenment which begins with understanding digital watches.

And for those of you who love the
horological genre of Time Travel, here are some other good ones;

Napoleon Dynamite's attempt at Time Travel
(not a time travel flick but a very funny scene nevertheless)

Internal Watch

Internal Watch
Designed by Leon Ransmeier for Vlaemsch ( ), this cocooned watch is encapsulated in leather rendering it non-functional as a timepiece. The designer explains, "The hidden watch transcends typical associations of status by isolating the emerging form rather than acting as a flashy signifier."

Although the identity of the encased watch is concealed, its contours suggest certain top-of-mind luxury cliches.

The New Seduction Weapon! 1968 Movado Kingmatic

The New Seduction Weapon!  1968 Movado KingmaticOhhyeah, Movado was helping you get laid in 1968 with their 'Kingmatic Video' watches. Whip out your wrist, break that ice, let the "Seduction Weapon" do its magic!

Obviously in 1968, nobody really knew what Video was - likely one of those futuristic buzzwords that must have sounded very advanced and modern.

Still, probably the only video product you could actually set the time on...

The New Seduction Weapon!  1968 Movado KingmaticC'mon, how many guys really got action with this Avocado Movado?

Masai Warrior Meeting at 3 o'clock Sharp

Masai Warrior Meeting at 3 o'clock Sharp"This man lives in a Masai village in the Ngorongoro highlands of Tanzania. The village is quite remote...the nearest electricity or running water is perhaps 70 miles away. He lives in a traditional Masai dwelling, with absolutely no "modern conveniences". And yet he wore a wristwatch...this seemed to be the one aspect of modern life he wished to adopt. "
-Bob Duck via Flickr

Perhaps Gerald Genta should use him to model their Safari-inspired Gefica?
