Hi all......quick intro. Involved in archery for close to 30 years! and primarily a Martin man. Compound, fingers, instinctive shooter, I like it simple :)

Anyway back to topic. I aquired a Martin Archery wrist watch from a close friend who owned a archery shop in Australia about 22 years ago. Only worn a couple of times then left to rest in its original box for all these years.

A couple of years ago I contacted Martin Archery explaining the watch and attached photos. Now dont quote me directly on this but the guy I contacted showed the pictures around Martin Archery and the response was something like people had heard of this watch but never seen one.

So I have attached some pics as I would like some more information on this watch and I'll be honest, not involved too much in archery these days and the watch is just sitting there doing nothing. I would assume someone might get much more out of this than me. No idea on its worth but would be interesting to find out peoples thoughts on this.

Thanks for listening.

Cheers,
Ben........(Australia)

Welcome to the forum. Thanks for sharing. I've never seen nor heard of this watch, but feel fairly certain somebody might be interested if nothing more than as a collector's item.

I will be listing the watch on ebay this friday evening (10th Feb) Australian time with the title "Martin Archery Wrist Watch".

If anyone has some interest in purchasing the watch, please feel free to pm me an offer before i list, and I have no idea what its worth :confused: but its a pretty cool item to own.

Watch is located in Australia.

Cheers,
