Your Most Quintessential Late 90鈥檚 Watch!

My Armitron Allsport hails from when the iMac still had a CRT, Honda was in its golden age, and watches had fitted to them ornately-linked integrated bracelets.

What better watch to demonstrate the late 90鈥檚鈥hich I bought at that time in history?

The nineties harbored many milestones for me: graduation from college, my marriage, buying my first house, and my divorce which consequently necessitated selling my house. Well鈥t least I still have this watch!

Show us your best example of your late 90鈥檚 watch!

Whoah, you a time machine boy?

That's 2090s surely? It's perfect in every way!

That's brilliant. Love it.

That鈥檚 still a common trait of Armitron watches.

My first dive watch was an armitron from the early 90s. I still have it but it no longer works. Not at home or I鈥檇 include a picture. I was working at a dive shop when I got it so it was actually being used for that, though it was a cheapo. Even at around $50 it was a big spend for me at the time.

Yours is looking great 馃憤

Behold the hideousness. This might be early noughties rather than late 90s, but I think it still falls into that era of terrible amorphous design. For another noughties bonus, notice the button at 2 which operates the backlight. This watch saw me through secondary school. I really wish I鈥檇 just been given a Casio.

This watch would pair nicely with JNCOs (including 3鈥 wallet chain) and frosted tips!

I love this watch!馃憣馃憣馃憣馃憣

Reminds me of the Tag Link a bit

This may be the one and only place Armitron gets the love it's due. Thanks for sharing.
