My uncle bought me this watch as a kid.
I got a watch exactly like this when I got my tonsils out when I was 6. That was 1980 or 1981. I still have it, and it still works. Doesn't fit my wrist, of course, but it's awesome!
I had a blue one I got for my birthday. I forgot I had it on and jumped in the pool with it one day.
