Xmas in July, Day 4: Space Watches

Whatever time it is, it's always the right time with a space themed watch! Are you torn between your allegiance to Tom Corbett Space Cadet, or Rocky Jones Space Ranger? I'm certainly having a hard time deciding which one I like best to add to my xmas wish list, and to be honest I almost just want the rocket shaped backing card for the watch even more than the timepiece itself! I was completely unfamiliar with the apparently "lost" Space Explorers television cartoon, but a quick google search filled me in (CLICK HERE!) Man, just when I thought I'd seen all the great 50's space cartoons! I'll have more from this beautiful old catalog o'mine in the next post!

I think the Space Explorer watch looks best from a distance. And it tell you direction! But after opening of the image, it's certainly much harder to choose, what with Space Ranger also being especially groovy.

They're all pretty sweet actually-- Hell, get one for each arm and then put the third one on your... ummm... ankle!
