Five Fossil Watch tins in a transistor radio vein...

In the mid-to-late '90s, Fossil Watch Company came out with a whole slew of watches that were housed in a whole slew of aluminum watch cases -- dozens and dozens, including at least five which had Fossil-modified images of vintage transistor radios.

All were digitally-modified images taken from Roger Handy's 1993 book, "Made in Japan." And "taken" is an appropiate euphemism here, as these copyrighted images were Fossilized without ANY request for rights of reproduction...

The five Fossil tins shown above are modified images of (left to right) the Sony TR-86 (p.26), Truetone DC-3090 (p.61), Realtone "Electra" TR-801 (p.80), Crown TR-555 (p.43), and an oddball "Selfix" (p.64)...
