I would think so. When they get me his email address, I will ask him! :-!I am referring to the amount of money the man is worth (i believe 100 million pounds...2.2billion dollars US). With that much cash and the ability to collect and purchase high end cars....he must have the odd expensive watch too I would think.
If you are using the Windows print-screen feature (that button on the keyboard) - its notoriusly unreliable to grab screenshots of videos and DVDs. Use the application's own screencapture feature.Excellent! Certainly looks like a Casio Databank with the bracelet replaced by a leather strap. Good job! :-!
(and while you're on the phone -- why do my screen prints of video clips come out black? Scanning rate problem?)
I have used Gadwin System's PrintScreen for a few years now with great success - except when trying to capture video! All I get is a black screen. I know it has to do with "scanning" but I can't figure out exactly how to correct it. :think:If you are using the Windows print-screen feature (that button on the keyboard) - its notoriusly unreliable to grab screenshots of videos and DVDs.

I use the VLC media player (google it) - its alt-ctrl-s.
As for Mr. Bean's watch, its a bit of interesting watch and movie trivia - and I'm staying MILES AWAY from that particular watch. I love Rowan Atkinson in Black Adder (especially as he gets smarter and wittier as the centuries go by) but I absolutely detest Mr. Bean.
Not a chance! :-d:-d:-dI'll settle for Rowan Atkinson's email address when you get it.
I appreciate your generosity. So here goes:Fine, a simple "thank you" will suffice (hold the Hollyweird floorflushing, though... :roll.
I stand corrected, in that case. However, it's clear that the model being emulated isn't a "1970's style watch", but a point-for-point copy of the venerable 1980's Casio DBC.In case anyone is still interested (it's closure for me ;-) )
Here's the email I received from Atkinson's management this morning:
I’m sorry to disappoint but the watch you speak of is a moulded mock-up of a 1970’s style watch with a non-working digital display screen and a calculator keyboard beneath.
I couldn't agree more with you and cyclefreaksix on this point. However, being in the business as you are, when was the last time that you observed something being done the easy way? :think:No need - everything considered, you were correct in the first place. :-!
I also don't understand why they needed to 'mock-up' that watch instead of just sending a stylist out to track one down and buy it? :-s
LOL! I was thinking of adding something like that but hesitated. Why spend hundreds when you can spend thousands!! :-dI couldn't agree more with you and cyclefreaksix on this point. However, being in the business as you are, when was the last time that you observed something being done the easy way? :think:
Regardless, it's the perfect watch for Mr. Bean, and the fact that the mock-up probably took three prop guys to fashion at cost several orders of magnitude over that of an original, working example makes it even more so. ;-)
