Secret Forts took a little time off this summer, but it seems that the blog is back in full force. The goodness that is today's post? Old school Timex commercials featuring the iconic torture tests with John Cameron Swayze, where the timepieces take a licking and, well, you know the rest. Another interesting fact to keep in mind: commercials back in the day were two minutes in length (or longer!). Watch our favorite here, but click over to Secret Forts for more.
