BOOTLEG: Superman watches – China (2004*)

2004bootlegsupermanwatches

Here are two bootleg Superman wristwatches from China.  Each watch has a mishmash of art and designs from different Superman continuities.  Both timepieces are made of stainless steel and claim to be water resistant.  The wristbands are made of molded flexible rubber.

The blue watch has a redrawn Bruce Timm style Superman on its face.  Its wristband has a Superman: The Animated Series style title logo and a couple of promotional style images of Superman.

The red watch has a redrawn John Byrne style Superman on its face.  Its wristband features a Superman: The Animated Series style title logo as well as a generic font that splits up the name as “super man”.  The band has a promotional style Superman and a stylized image of a Christopher Reeve Superman in flight.  Adding to that is something quite bizarre… a backwards ‘S’ symbol.

*I picked up these watches in Singapore in 2004.  There are no dates indicated on the watches, so I’m considering them to be from that year.
