Rare Speidel case

#1 Post by bauertime » Thu Sep 03, 2020 8:36 pm

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but I have been looking for a Speidel watch band case i saw on a 1950's T.V. show commercial. It is shaped like a pirate pistol. When you pull the trigger it would open up with the band inside. It's made of the same plastic the Golden Templar case is made of. I have checked auction sites on the internet for a few years now and have never seen one. I was wondering if anyone has ever seen one?

I think I remember seeing that commercial back in the 50's/60's but never saw one in the wild, so to speak. ;)

OMG, that is crazy — I love it!

I've turned into a bit of a bracelet geek — though nothin like you, Scott, I am sure! — so I appreciate you posting.

Sorry for the late reply. That's the commercial I saw. No wonder I couldn't find one. It's a Kreisler. I've been looking for it under Speidel. Thanks so much for finding it.

That is pretty special. Would be fun to find that band and that Lucite case.
