In January of 1946, the comic series Dick Tracy introduced, for the first time, a piece of fictional technology that would end up becoming one of the most desired in all of pop culture history. Now, after 72 years, the 2-Way Wrist Radio Watch is finally real.
Styled to look exactly like the comic book hero’s device, this official Dick Tracy wristwatch features a simple dial and Miyota 5R32 quartz movement under a sapphire crystal and encased in 316L stainless steel. But, beneath the simple watch face, there’s also a Bluetooth-enabled radio that can link up to your smartphone and make phone calls – just like in the comics. There’s no word yet on price, but this device is set to go on IndieGoGo any day now – so sign up for an alert and get a 2-Way Wrist Radio for yourself.
