Watch to wear with black pride

October 15, 1992|By Knight-Ridder News Service

We're talking about the wristwatches featuring pictures of 14 famous African Americans, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Bill Cosby, Malcolm X and Lena Horne.

The "African Americans of Achievement" series is not the first time New York-based Creative Strategies has advocated wearing your heart on your wrist, so to speak.

Geoff Walsh, 26, started out peddling watches featuring reproductions of world-famous paintings by Degas, van Gogh and Dali.

His company also produces a wildlife series and a funky, colorful "Graffiti Movement" series.

The African-Americans watches cost about $45 in such department stores as J.C. Penney. (Watches from the other series cost $45 to $75.) They also may be ordered by calling 1-800-767-3254, 9 to 5 weekdays. Delivery takes four to six weeks.
