BRprops used to have a bunch of pictures of it, but they arent linked anymore. I have them and am can send them to you if you wish.

on a side note have you seen the auction on ebay right now with the prototype Bradley watch? It is part of an awsome collection that somebody is selling, too bad it seems the jacket is not authentic, but still cool anyway. I hope it is okay to post live auctions here? I don't think there are as many lurkers looking to snipe like they have at the RPF. If not let me know.

Good find on the TV...as far as the miniscrewdriver I think that might be the wrong place to look because of how hard it would be to get the Shaft out of it (that sounded funny tee hee Laughing )...I have some other clues for it since I feel as familiar with it as I did with the scope knob before I found it. Be careful posting peoples emails in public it can get at the vary least get you a lot of spam.

I remember seeing similar watches in jewelry Box Stores in the mid seventies. Seems like it's been Id'd and a couple found on ebay.LED watches had just come out. I bought a Gold Bulova with the RED led readout. Hot stuff! Rolling Eyes

I know that Gary Willoughby over at Bladezone had actually produced a couple of Bryant's watches a few years ago....

While I don't think this is a match, perhaps it's a lead. This is a "zeon matrix" watch according to coolwatch.

Bryants watch could of been something custom made by the prop department. Could be some rubylith or amber lith layed over an old casio data bank watch or something.

yes I am quite sure that if I had the forsite to examin this film more closely when it came out there was probably alot of things that would have been easier to locate but as time goes by the simple things like watches and lamps become either rare or expencive ....but treasure hunting is alot of fun and I guess it seperates the men from the boys hahaha.....or wives ...hahaha
I suspect they took two watches and combined the two with part of one strap to join them ,kinda like the guy with the armfull or great deals ....I haven't worn a watch scince i welded one to my wrist on my cars alternator so I cant see what ya 'd need with 2, but this film holds many bigger mysteries ...

Hate to differ but i am almost 100% sure the dual face watch was a found object. I checked my stuff and don't have pictures but am just about positive someone on the RPF posted name brand and picture of one on eBay.

Nick may know. Heck it may have been him!

how many of these would have been made?
I saw what looks like a retail example but it had a package that included a photo of bryant (animated)
I am old enough to remember led watches, had a couple myself, but have never seen a duel head model...

Hmm, that's surprising. I would've sworn that Bryant's watch was a made-for-the-film prop, as opposed to some existing product for consumer retail.

Who knew?

In a world that had "pet rocks" and "chia pets " , a double headed watch doesn't seem that strange...
