Comments: Here is a sixties Television Screen shaped wrist watch with a high quality 17 jeweled Swiss made movement.  With the popularity of TV coming into most households in the late fifties and early sixties it was only fitting that watch designers utilize the popularity and create watches with that "TV" look.  This is a wonderful example of the sixties TV watch.
