    That is awesome! Does it buckle or is it a stretchy band? I have very tiny wrists, so I usually need something adjustable.

    If you do not mind me asking, how much was the watch at walmart? Also, did they have anyother muppet watches or merchandise at walmart? I am trying to determine if today is going to be a "run to walmart" day.

    Well, I have learned to do without a watch because of the whole cell phone/watch duplicity thing, but this isn't just a timepiece--it's a statement. I am OUT THERE as a muppet fan in this, baby! Ask me about the new movie! I am READY!

    Oh duh! I forgot about the cell phone thing. Yeah I dont know anyone who uses a watch to tell time, so these truly are unique accessories. But yeah Im a huge fan of that 1993-1997 Muppet collectible era, as I feel some really unique art and concepts came from that time merchandise wise and this feels squarely within that

    They had an Animal watch of similar design at my local Walmart. I love the design of these watches, but I just wish they were smaller. The face of the watch is a bit big for me.

    Yeah--the face of the watch is HUGE. Really. But GREAT advertising!

    A couple people have referenced Walter's watch in this thread...has anyone seen the actual watch Walter was wearing in the movie? My wife has been wanting a Kermit watch for years, but has been very specific in what she wants; nothing we ever looked at was "quite right." Then today, watching the movie, she almost jumped up in the middle of the theater; turns out Walter's watch is EXACTLY what she wants. I've searched all over, and have been unable to find it. Can anyone offer any assistance? Thanks!

    I think it's this one right? Got that image from a random auction website. Which I hate to say it would be the most likely place to find one at this point. Good luck!

    I wish the watch had number on it though. I feel like the only point of wearing it would be to show the world I loved Muppets. The second someone would ask me for the time I'd be useless.

    What are you talking about? It's clearly 4:45 by that watch. ;)

    Oh wait, correction... 4:45 PM.

    Cindy, that's the one! I did find it on eBay, for $150. Seems like a lot for a pretty basic watch, although it has a great look to it and I can understand it being a collectible. Unfortunately, my wife is insanely frugal, to the point where she would absolutely go wild-eyed Piggy on me for spending that kind of money on this, no matter how much she loves the watch. Guess I'll keep poking around. Thanks for your help!

    I only just stumbled on this whilst looking on the internet for Kermit watches.

    I have the watch in the photo (aka Walters watch!:0)

    These were given as gifts to employees of the Jim Henson Organisation in the UK around 1997/1998.

    As I recall, production was very limited; hence the high value today.

    Hope this helps :0)
