Nixon The Dictator watch

admin Watches Leave a Comment

Not really sure what to make of this one. It looks like a tiny, wrist-mounted guitar amplifier, but it’s also reminiscent of the watch/communicator thingie that Dick Tracey uses which, with its voice recorder – hence The Dictator – is possibly a better analogy.
