Specifically, a dedicated watch commercial. Those things are beyond rare where I live.

It was for the Bulova Precisionist. Advertised at JCPenney.

Not sure why other brands don't advertise on TV in NYC. Or, if they do, why it's so ridiculously rare. :think:

Funny. I just saw the same ad. They are obviously advertising now because it is so close to Xmas. I guess noone else buys watches any other time of the year.

Once in a very great while I will hear a radio spot for a watch. Yesterday I heard an ad for TAG/Heuer. It was the first time I've heard anything like that in months... if not years. I recall hearing a particular radio ad for Rolex some time back, but that's about it. I too would like to see TV adverts once in a while.

I remember seeing those Timex takes a licking and keeps on ticking ads on tv many years ago where they would put a Timex through some brutal torture test and it would come through completely unscathed. I wish I could see one of those again. Maybe that's why I like Timex so much even today.

You might be able to find a few of those old TV commercials on youtube.

Diamond and Gold Exchange is advertising its Rolex inventory pretty heavily here in Texas. Watch commercials come up all the time for sporting events, especially golf.
