Comic Book Themed Wrist Watches
I’ve owned a few comic book related watches over the years. Most have moved on to the great temporal graveyard in the sky, however, I’ve hung on to a couple worth sharing.
Below is a Fossil watch from 1989 featuring a fantastic drawing of the Joker. I’m fairly confident the artist was Kyle Baker. I don’t recall much about obtaining the watch, but I’ve read online that it was apparently limited to 500 pieces. It was an awesome watch that I wore for many years. After cracking and replacing the crystal a few times and noticing how banged up the gold had become, I finally retired this watch.
Below is a gorgeous Starman watch released in 1997. The imagery matches the back of Jack Knight’s jacket in the Starman comic series. I absolutely loved this watch! The crystal on this watch is beveled and is unfortunately very susceptible to damage. I replaced a cracked crystal on this watch once, only to crack it again soon after. I may consider repairing this watch so I can wear it again.
Below is the watch I currently wear. It’s a knock-off I picked up on eBay, but it’s been great. Very reliable, fits well, and displays the Superman S-Shield in a subdued manner so I can wear this watch to business meetings.
That’s all the comic related watches still in my possession. Do you have a favorite comic related watch?
