TransFormers Optimus Prime Converting LCD watch

Today's watch is a sibling to a watch I posted about 2 years ago, and is now timed well with the cinema releases.

This watch was one of (at least) two watches that were issued for the release of the Transformers Dark Side of the Moon movie in 2011. I posted the Bumblebee watch last time, and this time it's the turn of the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime.

The watch was made by the British brand Zeon who, based on all of the Zeon watches I've blogged, appear to be one of the main distributors of novelty and film tie-in watches.

It has the style of the 80s Kronoform and Gobots watches, with simple arms and legs which fold out when you take the robot from the strap. The LCD display is in the chest and is a 4 digit LCD. As with the original robot, there are two buttons, and the display has time, date, and seconds modes.

The watch was manufactured by Zeon, and has links to General Motors (who licenced the vehicle details) and is copyright to Hasbro and Paramount Pictures Corporation.
