DC Superheroes Watches - 2008

These are pictures of two DC hero wristwatches, and the box they come in, sent to me by F.O.A.M.er Joe Huber. Thanks Joe!

I had never seen these before, here's what Joe told me about them:

"While shopping, I happened into JC Penneys--Armitorn makes watches under a brand called Wrist Candy that they sell exclusively through Penneys. Some of them were on clearance for 40% off plus an additional 20% taken at register. I found Green Lantern, Flash, Batman & Robin, and Wonder Woman at one. The box is really cool and features all of the the heavy DC hitters (including Aquaman) plus Green Arrow, Shazam, Batgirl, Hawkman, and Plastic Man.

I hit another Penny's close to home and found the Superman, Green Lantern (2nd style), Plastic Man, Catwoman, and Batgirl watches. I didn't know if they made an Aquaman watch or not, but he was on the box along with some of the others. I did an online search, and the Penney's website only features a few styles.

I have attached the box scan and an attempt at a scan of the watches. The box was made to intentionally look distressed. The images are on the top and bottom of the lid. The sides have the DC orignals bullet with random comic book sound affects scattered behind."

Wow, I think these are pretty cool looking! If there are Catwoman and Plastic Man watches, there has to have been an Aquaman one, right?

There used to be JC Penneys stores all around this area, but not so much anymore. If I happen to go by one, I think I'll have to stop in and see what I can find of these.

Thanks to the Internet, I don't think there's anything that's not being discussed by someone right now.

Running to Penny's now to see if they have the Aquaman one! Will get 2 and send one to Rob!

Cool! What were the prices for the watches, if I may ask. That Green Lantern one looks great.

My sister works at Penneys. I'm having her see if she can get me some of these with her workers' discount and coupons. I'll let everyone know tomorrow or Friday. :-)

The watches are normally 39.99. Some of them were on clearance 40% off with an additional 20% off.

What's nice about the GL watch is that the band is faux leather.

I already owned the Flash watch (which is really cool), but I didn't know about the others until I saw this post.

I went to Penny's today and picked up both versions of the GL watch ($25 each) and the Batman and Robin watch ($20).

Does anyone know what the Superman watch looks like? (They were sold out of it!)
