So, after doing my own mini-pocketwatch, I was out at Michael’s the other day, and saw that they’re now carrying a LOT more watch parts than they were before. In the past, I’ve seen them there, but they had only one or two styles, and they were in the 30$ range. (Of course, I almost always print off the 40% coupon from their website or clip out of their flyer, but still….)
Now, they have a huge selection up – and while most of them are for typical watch-bands, there are TWO that are pocketwatch style! One in silver-tone, the other in brass-tone. I personally like my little copper one a LOT more, but options are always good! These new ones are about half the price, at $14.99 and $16.99. You can click on the image for a larger version.
It does make me wonder though – who wears a watch anymore? I haven’t in years – because of my allergy to metal (and hence the back of the watch, the buckle, and in the all-plastic Swatch-brand watches, the exposed battery..), but I rarely see them on anyone else either, since everyone carries around their cell phones/Blackberry/iPod/etc.
