Why is there no Retraction Watch watch? I only see a clock.

Cafe Press doesn’t sell watches, so we’ll need to find another vendor. Check back, and thanks for your interest!

Would be nice to have a Retraction Watch or Clock that runs backwards (counterclockwisewise)!

Yes, and we might start with the numeral 12 at the bottom signifying the that the day’s time has run out (better to use a twenty-four hour clock?). However, making time descriptions more cryptic using base 2 with12 (=~3.58) and so on is probably an idea that should be retractable, if not programmable.
Ooh, there’s a wonkoidal trinket: a clock with programmable LED numeral combinations and configurations! It provides the immediate excuse: “I was sleeping on, ahem, sex-agesimal time and my alarm was set for octal … “

Umm, by now there are only 6 products, all with the same logo with the magnifying glass, and retractionwatch.com written.
Not too bad, but shouldn\’t you retract this blog entry because of the \”exciting line\” claim? This is, in my opinion, an overstatement and it lacks support by the suplementary material in the linked site.
Alternatively, you may consider the very good ideas of Raj and Mounthell (please, given them some credit, perhaps even a coauthorship to this entry).

I am still waiting for a shirt that says “I made Retraction Watch!” that we can send to the culprits for wearing around their departments.

Hey how about a Retraction Watch themed shredding machine for any inconvenient manuscripts, data printouts or notebooks that may be lying around?
