 (Hoping as always that this isn't old news)

Stumbled across this "Tesla Watch" the other night and its something I could see myself purchasing.

Not the kinda thing I would wear but looks good and might be ok on a stand sat on a table or something along those lines. Nice bit of kit.

Wow, a Bullhead watch!
I've always wanted one of those, but that may be a bit large.

I agree it's too big for its current watch band, but if you put it on your aetheric vambrace, along with a few of your other inventors' tools...

And only $59.99? I think I've found somebody's stocking stuffer for this year...

This is the site that has it for sale:  http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/imnl/?cpg=cj&ref=&CJURL=&CJID=4400298

I dunno; sometimes they sell out of these things fairly quickly. I'm still waiting for them to offer their Weeping Angel Christmas tree topper again, which was gone long before I even knew it existed.

Still, most of us Steampunks are on a budget, so we're probably okay for a while.

Hello

I did pre-order this watch and it just came in Oct 17th. Looks even better in person for a mass produced watch.

Just a few things about the watch.
Comes in a nice tin.
The "tubes" shut off after 4 seconds to save battery life.
The watch does take 3 batteries so I think I will pull these and only use when I am going to wear it. This will not be an everyday watch. :-)

I am already looking at modifying the watch.
Did notice the switch is already starting to rub the finish off the watch face. Not sure there is an easy fix for that.
The watch band is interesting but a tad bit short for my wrist.

A very fun watch to show off at the next steampunk event. :-)

Lars Larssen came with a line of Skeleton watches that are also really nice and would fit with a formal dress.

Seeing that on an adult's arm, that watchband is waaaay too small (narrow). I still want one, 'though.

I want one!

I agree the band is way to thin. On something like that a big thick band would look better.
