Watch That's Sewn/Built Into Clothing

For those who don't have cell phones, would lose pocket watches, and just don't like wrist watches.

I have a favorite jacket. Mostly, I wear it outside, where there are few clocks. It would be great if a small, light simple digital or analog watch was built into the left cuff. So small and light that I wouldn't notice it. No date, no stopwatch, just the time. Maybe they could be built into other, thinner, garments.

Clock cufflinks http://images.googl...e=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi
Would have to be waterproof to be sewn into the cuff though. [skinflaps, Mar 12 2008]

       One thing i never get about these ideas, and i don't just mean on the halfbakery, is how the garments are supposed to be washed. Either the stuff is all waterproof, it never gets washed or the vulnerable parts are removed. If it's the first, it would also have to be very robust; if the second, yuck; if the third, an expensive accident is waiting to happen.

       How about just buying a T-shirt that says "Please tell me the time."?

       I hope I don't need to mention that this has been done by many different people in science fiction for about the last fifty years or so, making this idea preheated.

       I think flava flav would go for this in a big way.
