    watch spotted on TV - Showtime's "Dexter"

    I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what kind of watch Dexter wears on the show. I really like the bracelet... Maybe an older model Omega?

    I'm not sure about the watch, I've wondered that myself actually, but I'm pretty sure the band is just a pretty basic strechy band you can find in a lot of places.

    It's a 1973 Timex. There's some reason for him wearing it, but I forget if that was ever discussed when the watch was identified.

    Probably the year he was "born"?

    Doh! Missed this earlier - it is a stretch metal band, looks like a Speidel.

    I must respectfully challenge the notion that Dexter wears a 1973 Timex on the show. Perhaps my obsession with finding this watch exceeded the rest of you sane folks, but I spotted one online, pulled the trigger on it-- and was disappointed when it arrived that the case simply does not have the same traits. No "ring bezel". Not sure what the technical term of a non-moving bezel that surrounds the crystal is called. On my Timex there's no ring surrounding the acrylic.

    Unless there were different case styles of the 1973- this isn't our match.

    Keep looking! :(

    You seem to be right, plus the case seems different too

    A different crown, also.


    ANyway - I noticed Dexter's watch, but couldn't figure out what it was. However, my wife like to remind me that it is the same watch over and over by saying, "See, Dexter doesn't need 10 different watches."

    Ugh. Backfire.
