Arsenal waited nine years without winning a trophy—but their merchandise team waited just a couple of days before releasing a watch to celebrate their 2014 FA Cup victory.

A full-page advert appeared on page 49 of today's print edition of The Sun to showcase the timepiece, which can be yours for just £149 (as well as £5 for postage and packaging).

That didn't take long, did it. #Arsenal FA Cup 2014 FA Cup Winners watch for £150 + P&P of course !!!

The only hour marked on the watch is 11—to highlight the fact that this was the Gunners' 11th FA Cup triumph.

As the Metro cheekily puts it:

The ‘official licenced product’ looks like something you might see on a dodgy market stall, and is yours for a bargain £149 plus £5 postage and packing.

In adverts which appeared across several outlets, the watch is described as ‘expertly crafted’ and ‘a must for every fan’, with supporters able to pay in installments for this must-have item.

Now, you can’t help but be a little happy for Arsenal ending their silverware drought (sorry for Hull fans), but this has gone too far…

Still, if you don't feel it's great value, you don't have to buy it. Maybe you save your money for one of those Arsenal kit mash-up shirts instead...
