Cheapest Watches Ever!

Those infomercial dudes don't have anything on me! Sure those nifty Invicta's are 75% off and the Stauer is a copy of a million dollar antique watch. But, those watches don't sell for $1. That's right One Dollar! I found each of the watches below at Dollar Tree for just one dollar!

Dollar Tree Watches

 While these watches were too cheap for even me to consider buying, they were interesting.  The second watch from the left is made from paper so that kids can paint on it.  The third watch from the left is a slap watch.  They might be fun for young kids!

  1. Thanks to you for sharing this informative and useful article with us. Do you know about M. Aymon de Mestral still writes, "he was and would remain Daniel JeanRichard dit" Bressel ", the inspiration for mountain rafiqsonsonline(.)com/product-category/smart-watches/ watchmaking. The task for which it was intended was accomplished. Others were going to pursue and develop it in an incredible way. Even through the silence and oblivion that will envelop the precursor, the development and prosperity of these mountain regions will continue the most beautiful and living tribute to his memory ”. Silence and oblivion ... Indeed, a few days after the death of Daniel JeanRichard, the clerk of Le Locle was content - because such was the egalitarian use and which did not lack a certain grandeur - to record in his registers: "On ... April 1741, buried a man". No name, no indication whatsoever. There was not the slightest obituary the day after his death. We don't know where his grave is. The farm-workshop he seems to have lived in Petit-Mont was transformed at the end of the last century. The portraits that we have of him, except one, executed by an unknown and rather mediocre, are all from the 19th century ... Daniel JeanRichard had lived and left as it was appropriate to give watchmaking this mythical figure without which there is no real tradition.
