Color Wheel

Time ticks by in a wave of color with the Chroma Watch that features a kaleidoscope dial modeled after the Munsell* color measurement. While Chroma's numerals change colors every second, the colors of the hour hand merge from one palette to another, gradually creating beautiful hues of the color spectrum. Designed by Laurinda Spear. Made in China.

Stainless steel mesh adjustable band. Water resistant to 150 feet. Battery included.

*The Munsell Measurement is the standard measure of the three dimensions of color: tone, value and color purity.

Sadly it was defective.

        Comments about CHROMA WATCH:

        It's a nice watch and fun to read. A little on the pricy side, but you pay for the creativity that went into the design of this watch which is its best feature. I gave it 4 stars, because the mesh-like band is way long and has a fused end so shortening is out of the question. The look of the band takes away from the watch. It is more grey and less silvery than pictured and on the manly side, so not too elegant. I wouldn't wear it to a formal gathering because of the band.

        Comments about CHROMA WATCH:

        This watch is really awesome. I found it on this website and talked my grandmother into buying it for me for my birthday and Ive been absolutely in love since the day I put it on. I constantly get compliments on it (everyone loves the color wheel and the mesh band - which is one of the things that first attracted me to it, its really comfortable!) Also it's waterproof! Not being much of a watch wearer until I got this one, there have been numerous times I have accidentally left it on before I shower/wash my hands and it being waterproof has been a lifesaver!! Overall, really amazing accessory, goes with practically everything and is really comfortable to wear.

        The only con was trying to life up the part on the band used to tighten it, its really stubborn! But once I got it to my wrist size it has been perfect!
