This will be a familiar sight for anyone reading Marvel UK's weeklies and monthlies at the beginning of the eighties:  the advert for the Star Wars digital watch.  A snip at just £8.95 all-in.  Jadwin House must have been stuffed to the rafters with the things as Marvel re-ran this advert month after month.  After month.  Usually in colour (as here) but, occasionally, in black & white (which tended to look like a poorly reproduced photocopy of the colour version).

The offer is now closed.  But Panini probably still have a few cases in their Tunbridge Wells basement.  Probably.
