I did not have this exact watch. I did, however, have at least three of the cheaper knockoffed versions that came out of vending machines, gas stations, and drug stores across America around 1985.

This ad is fucking awesome, though.
Incidentally, according to a friend of mine with too much free time on his hands, the cheap gas station knockoff version of this watch cost about 3-5 bucks. The one advertised here sold for .

Goethe and ernie
In future I will make a point of referring to all watches as "robot time machines", regardless of how pathetic it makes me seem.
I had the hell out of this watch (or a knockoff thereof - no chrome but Takara logo)

The brief, split-second moment when you suspect that this might be a parody.
this ad prompted me to look up 'transformers' on wikipedia, introducing me to a whole new world of sad, holy shit.
The transformers wikipedia entries are downright biblical. And lo, Alpha Prion begat Beta-blocker, who begat Crossfire, who begat the evil twins Soundwave and Shockwave; later to be raised by sharkticons...

I actually had one of these, which was rare for me in that my mom usually only got me knockoffs after the initial Transformers boon. Pretty decent watch, I must say.
0:15 - a solar creature?
I had a knock off that was BETTER than this. BETTER I say.

It was smaller, and not only made a robot, but it's original shape was a scorpion.

Transforms into a robot! A... uh, robot on its back! Um, robot doing a handstand! Spread-eagle handstand robot! AND MANY MORE!
