Watch out -- it's 'time' for Carole

The 1929 version of Carole Lombard looks very stylish for the time in this Pathe photo, almost certainly taken by the studio's photographer, William E. Thomas. But she's apparently missing one notable accessory...and it has to do with that word "time."

Where's her watch? Perhaps Lombard is hiding it on her right wrist, or maybe she neglected to put it on. But thankfully we can rectify that.


All right, so it's advertised as a men's watch, although the seller lists it as a "unisex silver-tone high quality watch." Moreover, the image on the watch is from about 1934, thus making it anachronistic, and even if it wasn't, one doubts Lombard would ever wear a watch with her picture on it. (About the only character shown on 1930s watches was Mickey Mouse.) OK, so Carole wouldn't wear it -- but you can!

The casing measures 1 1/2", with the stainless-steel wristband fits wrists between 6 1/2" and 8". Moreover, the battery is included.

Bids open at a mere 99 cents, with the auction scheduled to end at 3:16 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday. If bidding goes above $10, the winner gets a second watch from the seller, though I don't know if multiple Lombard watches are in stock or whether the seller chooses the extra watch. Other classic Hollywood-themed watch subjects available include Vivien Leigh...

...and Ava Gardner:
