    Thought you guys might enjoy this site.

    This website is full of interesting history of days long gone and since you love old watches I'm betting you will enjoy looking thru the old commercials selling cars and cigarettes (remember those?). Look hard and you will find old drive-in intermission films.
    Sorry if this has been seen before.

    In this collection of tv ads from 1948, 2mins 30s in, you can see a Bulova Clipper going over Niagara Falls.
