Anyone remember the Peter Gunn series? It was on TV in the U.S. from 1958 to 1961 (Wikipedia info) starring Craig Stevens (who didn't do much else after the series). I barely remember my father watching on the old DuMont B&W TV when I was a kid.

Now they're playing it again on the Retro TV cable channel, so I get to see it again. Peter Gunn is a very cool detective and if you don't know who Peter Gunn is, I bet you know the famous theme song by Henry Mancini (here it is on YouTube).

He was a very cool, hip dude for the day, always a dapper dresser and I've been trying to catch his watch that he wears in every episode. Finally got it, Episode 20 from the first season which was a very unusual show because someone hired him to go to Texas for a job.

Anyway, here's his watch, he's holding it next to an alarm clock. Anyone know what it is? This episode aired in 1959:

Sorry, I can't help with the watch, but thanks for the memories. I used to watch Peter Gunn every week. Listened to the Henry Mancini theme, now the Blues Brothers version...

He wasn't in anything big, but he wasn't going hungry between 1967 and his retirement in 1988....
