ID badge question: Help me find a badge reel that tells me what time it is.

I work in an office that requires an ID badge to get into certain rooms. Once I'm in these rooms, it's often to attend a long, boring meeting. I hate wearing a watch and often don't have pockets in which to carry my cell phone, but I always have my ID badge clipped to my clothing with a badge reel like one of these. I'd really love to find a badge reel that has a watch face or even a little digital clock display. I can probably construct one with my current badge holder, a cheap watch, and some superglue, but I'd rather have something a little less DIY. Anyone know of where I can get one?

It's not really part of a badge, nor is it retractable, but you might consider a belt loop watch (here's a different look). I'm sure there's more than one style out there, though FWIW most of the ones I've seen have been rather masculine-looking).

I have a Time Tag that I bought just for this purpose.

Clipped to a belt loop at all times is my $10 timex expedition indiglo watch.

Which I bought at Target in 2001. It's still running, on the original set of batteries, and after having gone through the wash dozens of times, and after using the indiglo function hundreds of times. I have no idea how this is possible.
