Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch

Great Scott! Someone was hanging a clock in the toilet when he fell and hit his head on the sink. That’s when he came up with the idea of a Flux Capacitor Wristwatch. No joke. This Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is real and is available at ThinkGeek for US$49.99.


Reading the time on the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is pretty fun and challenging. Press the bottom button and then get ready to count lights. Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit. It may look confusing, but is very easy to read. Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats. At the same time, the time circuit LCD display will show you the date.

Will it time travel? Well, I guess you need to generate 1.21 gigawatts of electricity and run 88 miles per hour for time travel to happen.


I don’t know about you. But this looks like the perfect Christmas present for Back To The Future fans like me. Definitely better than any smart watch in the market.
