Splinter Cell Blacklist Digital "Special Ops" Watch

Recommended Posts

I just thought I would give you a bit of pre-Christmas cheer with a watch I bought for £3.

I bought this watch as a stand-alone pre-owned item but originally it would have been included in the "Ultimatum Edition" of the 2013 Playstation 3 computer game, "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist," as a so-called "Special Ops" watch. I have noticed that there are a few Youtube videos showing the unpacking of the Ultimatum Edition box for this game (which includes a comic book, the game itself, and the watch) but they are not exactly exciting viewing so I haven't included one here. Instead, I will just describe the watch and show a few pics for your delectation. This then is a four-button LCD wristwatch with a 45mm black plastic case and soft rubber strap. The watch features three dials, all with flat plastic crystals, an emerald green ground colour and the displayed figures picked out in a metallic tone - functions being a chronograph, time and date display, alarm and hourly beep, and backlight - each dial having its own LED when the backlight button is pressed. The back seems to be in polished steel etched with the full title of the computer game above the mark, "UBICOLLECTIBLES".

I don't know if this watch will ever become genuinely collectible; there are certainly sellers out there cashing in on the notion that this is already a collectible item. As for my own opinion, I actually quite like this watch even if I would baulk at wearing it. What I like is the overall shape and design of the watch as well as those green dials - they are a bit different from the norm - both in daylight mode and when lit up. The black strap isn't bad, either. Yes, this is a cheapo watch, but in my view not a throw-away item - it has found a place in my collection. After all, if quality isn't available then novelty will sometimes do.:laugh:
