Weird And Wonderful From The Wacky World Of Watches

Okay, so you got some weird watches, right? WRONG!
Get a load of these, you might have to rethink your collection...



1945.
Clear plastic watch band.

Image




1922 golf scorer.

Image




1923 policeman's signal glove.


Image






1893 pocket watch lamp.


Image




How about a 1915 alarm watch, that cuts off your blood supply? :)


Image




...or another one that burns you awake? Not so silent when you let out a blood-curdling scream of agony!
From 1918.


Image





Now, some of these guys did some pretty weird experiments we know, but a fucking "cootie watch"???
1918.



Image





I wish Bulova had actually made one of these, I would have bought one if it meant selling my soul.



Image





This offering from Fossil in 1993 was just stoopid...



Image







This fantastic device is so rare, I want one. 1957 Everlite.



Image






Another rarity, it has the same function as my 1970's Sicura Rally watch.
The 1947 Montillier "Telefoot" football watch, for timing matches.



Image



I might have a few more somewhere, if you have any too please add them, the crazier the better!

What about the first Teasmaid, patented in Birmingham in 1902?
