Poor Boy’s Horology Podcast, March 2021, “RETRO” Timex

In today’s show Dr. Ed takes us back in time, to 1976, showing TV commercials for what was his first car, a 1976 Ford Maverick.

Reviewed on today’s show are two “RETRO” Timex watches, a T-80 that has had PACMAN graphics slapped onto it and an M79 which is a 1970’s dive watch re-introduction.

At the end of the program the host revists his SKMEI S-shock Chinese military issue watch and explains how it survived a fire that burned off his eyebrows, beard, and shirt. He gives the Chinese knock-off of the casio G-shock top marks because this watch has earned them.
