Superman and the Challenge Timer

Some brilliant work by Attilio on the Italian ‘Orologi Passioni’ forum came up with a great spot – a Challenge Timer worn by the editor of the Daily Planet! 🙂

It’s often hard to properly identify a watch from film footage but this one looks clear – since the film was released in 1978 (couldn’t believe it was that long ago!) it is exactly right for this model and shows a nice original example.

Here’s a link to Attilio’s marvellous post – well worth the trouble of translating – where you’ll also see some fine photos of his own Challenge Timer:
