Hottest Watch Ever
By James Grahame
The annual CES gadget orgy has once again swept tech writers off their feet in a tsunami of orgasmic technolust. And once again, we weren't invited to partake. But we're not bitter. Nope, not us.
We'll pass the weekend wandering listlessly through the quiet halls of Retro Thing HQ, moodily fantasizing about odd gadgets from the past. Like this example of convergence gone mad, entered in our recent contest by Shea Connolly.
"I picked up this unique watch/lighter at a garage sale as a teen in the late 80s for $2 (price tag remains on box). I've never seen another one like it. Always thought it was an interesting combination. I have a small collection of vintage novelty watches, and this is my favorite."
