    Didn't think to save the info, and am kinda interested in getting a new watch right now. Anyone else recall?

    Also, didn't someone make replica wristbands for it?

    I don't remember who the specific member was that made them but I was lucky enough to get one before he dissapeared. I think he made out with a few members' cash and it's really a shame because he did GREAT work and the bands are DEAD on.

    I've been looking for one too, I have a similar leather band at the moment..
    How much might one cost though? I think the originals were fairly expensive.

    If I'm not mistaken the real Red Monkey costs about 250.00.

    *, sorry to hear that.
    Yes, Red Monkey watches cost about 250. Do they sell the design/color Wolverine had? I figured that was made for the movie.

    Check with Mantis, but I believe the one Wolvie had was quite literally 'off the rack'.

    Wolvie's watch is Chocolate band with grey face distressed and X strap (after the movie)

    Let's keep them making these.. I have black on black and love it.

    Thanks Avalon. Do you happen to know which band width the movie used? The medium (2") looks about right, but I haven't seen the pics in a long while. Grey face is out of stock as an aside, so I'll toss an email to find out when they get back.

    If someone feels like doing a new run of replica watch bands, I'd be interested. I remember someone finding a very similar watch.

    Not sure about the band size on the Wolvie. The one I have is 1 1/2" You should ask them about when they'll have the grey face and which size band and let is all know.

    I'd say save enough and buy an original Red Monkey watch. I own one and the chromed finish really makes it look unique. People always compliment me on it, but seem to lose interest when I tell them about the X-men/Wolverine connection. That's why I just go with a "thanks for noticing" and leave it there.

    One thing: Don't DROP IT.. I kept dropping mine's and it knocked one of the inside details off its place. Now, that lose piece rattles around, getting cough between the arms, paralizing the watch.

    I forget the members name that stole my money, but I guess it sorta worked out for me since I ended up plunking down the cash to get the real deal.

    It's great and as GunthaKela mentioned, I too get compliments on the watch. Any of my "wearable" props I never reference the movie it was from.

    The bastard got my money too. His name was Brian, I forgot what his board name was. From what I remember he did good work, the bands looked well made. Oh well.... :rolleyes

    Snoose: PM sent

    The grey face is available for phone orders only for now, but it is still just out of stock so it will return online sooner or later I guess. I asked for the correct band width in my response.

    Straight from the monkey's mouth:

    "If you are looking for the X-Men watch, the style is a Vintage X-Strap (1-1/2"), Distressed Chocolate Leather with Grey Face, retail price $235.00. (Without Distressed Leather, retail price is $215.00.)"

    So, the narrowest band. I guess it is pretty inconspicuous in the movie. If I do spring for a new RMD watch I might go for one of their crazier models.

    Wow, for $250 you'd think they would build the watch better than that.

    To be fair, I did drop it a lof of times. The glass face of that watch became very addicted to gravity.
