Now YOU can be Snake Pliskin

Now YOU can be Snake Pliskin

It's hard to beat a good, all-around '80s action movie and if you're a watch enthusiast that grew up loving these films, you probably remember Escape From New York. The story centers around Snake Plissken, who is given a gun, a two-way radio, and a countdown watch before his mission to save the President from the country's largest prison – New York City in 1997. It may seem a bit heavy handed by today's standards, but the film has achieved a cult following and the timer, which is central to the story line, has been especially appealing to watch enthusiasts that love "watch-spotting" in movies and TV shows. Today, we're introducing the Lifeclock One, an officially licensed, supercharged version of Snake Plissken’s countdown watch from Escape from New York equipped with a range of modern smartwatch functions.

This made me think that we are overdue for a third movie in this series, especially in light of events over the past year...ESCAPE FROM THE DONALD. :mrgreen:

If it were a tad bigger and came with a replica eyepatch I'd be all over it.

Finding out the time is about as difficult as finding a cheesburger.

I may not be Snake Pliskin, but I'm curt quite often.

I'll be here all week; please tip your waitresses.

Can you wear one of these and remain in New York?
