Hall of Shame: First award to Lidl supermarkets

You might be surprised – and delighted – to see a 24 hour analog watch in your local supermarket while shopping. Here’s the watch in its original packaging, seen in supermarket chain Lidl this week. Looks like a bargain for just 2.99 pounds (4.5 Euros, or 6 US dollars)?

On closer inspection it promises to be a nicely-designed yet very cheap quartz genuine 24 hour analog watch:

But it turns out that these watches have a standard 12 hour movement. So after just one hour, the hour hand has advanced two hours. Time will really fly by!

Don’t be tempted.
