I made a trip to a monthly flea market event a couple of weeks ago in search of great deals on vintage bits of pop culture gold. After all, I had scored at this flea market a couple times in the past so my spirits were high. This trip however yielded no 1970s action figures or Universal Monsters for my collection. A couple of the dealers that offer the kind of things we love here at The Retroist were absent this time. Not wanting to go home empty handed I did find this very cool Dukes of Hazzard watch made by Unisonic in 1981. It appears new in the box with very few signs of aging for a 32 year old timepiece. There was also the black plastic lcd watch available. I chose the classier stainless steel version here that comes in the nice plastic container. The battery was dead of course but I could try to replace that at the jewelry counter. Some of these watches had a musical alarm that played the Dixie melody from the General Lee’s horn in the show. This watch does not seem to offer that amenity.
