Does Indy ever wear a watch?

Hi all,
I've gone through all the Indy films, but can never recall him ever wearing a wristwatch. Indy's dad has a pocket watch, but never Indy, unless it's hidden under the cuff of his jacket. But if Indy did wear a watch, what do you reckon he'd wear? My own thoughts are it would be a army issue writstwatch or something similar because of the demands of adventuring.
cheers all,
Mike

Yes something of WW1 vintage seems most likely.

I could be wrong, but I think that watch is a 'wind up'.

Maybe he utilizes that famous method some Indians allegedly use to tell the time...

How Indians Tell Time Skit

Action

Announcer: "The ancient Indians will now demonstrate how they tell time." The Indians dance around the fire loudly. After a while they stop and pretend to listen for a sound. They dance around the fire again and listen for a sound
( Hidden Scout offstage): Shut-up, it's 2:30 in the morning!

Equipment

Just a campfire

Preparation

About 4-8 scouts circle around the campfire. 1 scout hides offstage.

Awesome watch.

Yep, Goodeknight that's definitely the watch Indy would wear. Just wondering, how accurate is it? Good thing about it is you'll never need batteries. Thanks also for posting the photo - great pic!

"Good day, white man. All is fine, yes. Just telling the time."

"Telling the time...?"

"The sun casts a shadow, see?"

True enough, there are small dots of warpaint around the redskin's private parts - and the shadow tells the time accurately, as the cowboy can confirm by looking at his own pocket watch.

The cowboy rides on, and arrives to the edge of the desert and decides to make camp. Suddenly, he hears a rustle from a nearby bush. Thinking it's some kind of wild animal, he draws his six-shooter and edges forward... and to his surprise, comes across another Indian, who is vehemently... doing some "handiwork".

Upon noticing the intruder, the Indian looks up and grunts:

"What's the matter, white man? First time you see a man wind his watch?"

Ive often wonder what type of watch Indy would wear. But I guess their not that important on his adventures.

But I imagine a leather strap watch of some kind. Not the stainless steel dress watches.

I always assumed he had a regular Hamilton Standard from his war years, but maybe not if you're a spy - kinda gives it away. But still, after the war I'd think something plain. Didn't old Indy have a pocket watch?

Hamilton: The Khaki Field

Field watches are hot these days, but this one (the official timepiece of Indiana Jones) is actually meant for "the field." Change the straps as you wear them out, as the ETA Swiss movement will likely outlast the bracelet — and may outlive you too.

"the official timepiece of Indiana Jones" ?






And then there's this piece of fiction(?)

That Hamilton doesn't seem rustic enough for an Indy watch. I imagined something with roman numerals perhaps and less modern looking.
