    Saw something I haven't seen in a long time . . .

    Specifically, a dedicated watch commercial. Those things are beyond rare where I live.

    It was for the Bulova Precisionist. Advertised at JCPenney.

    Not sure why other brands don't advertise on TV in NYC. Or, if they do, why it's so ridiculously rare.

    Funny. I just saw the same ad. They are obviously advertising now because it is so close to Xmas. I guess noone else buys watches any other time of the year.

    Movado has been running commercials lately.

    Yeah, I would like to see watch commercials. Even brands I am not crazy about.

    Once in a very great while I will hear a radio spot for a watch. Yesterday I heard an ad for TAG/Heuer. It was the first time I've heard anything like that in months... if not years. I recall hearing a particular radio ad for Rolex some time back, but that's about it. I too would like to see TV adverts once in a while.

    I remember seeing those Timex takes a licking and keeps on ticking ads on tv many years ago where they would put a Timex through some brutal torture test and it would come through completely unscathed. I wish I could see one of those again. Maybe that's why I like Timex so much even today.

    You might be able to find a few of those old TV commercials on youtube.
