Datestamp Wristwatch

Sign here, and here, and here, and date this, and this, and initial this...

I rarely bother trying to remember the date anymore. I think that spot in my brain has been reserved for other activities, like certain websites. I'm therefore always referring to my wristwatch whenever I need to date a form. Got me thinking... (which is quite a feat, these days).

I'm not quite certain the packaging would work out, but since I figure that my watch shows the date already, how hard would it be to have it in raised digits, and a flip-top inkpad? Alternatively, a variation of John's Time-Goes-By Bracelet could contain a re-inker pad in the non-displaying sections.

       This would be useful if the halfbakery were posted on parchment nailed to the oak doors of the cathedral in the town square, and after you write your annotation, you sign and date it.

       As well as a flip-top inkpad, you would have a flip-top mirror enabling you to view the date the correct way round, no?

       Maybe there could be a heater or lazer to print it in a similar way the fax machines or lazer printers does. Anyway +)
