Movie creators work hard to produce clothing and accessories that are as realistic as possible for the time period of their movies. Unfortunately, the people responsible for creating realistic era-based props sometimes fail miserably. From digital watches appearing years before they were developed to clothing that didn’t come into fashion for decades, these costume blunders should never have occurred but they make for great conversation pieces.

Here are some noteworthy blunders that have happened over the years. Kudos to you if you were able to recognize them.
