Live In The Moment

Sometimes we need to be reminded to live in the present, and not be worried by what is in the past and what lies ahead in the future. Through its clever design, the Past, Present and Future watch by Daniel Will-Harris only displays the present time thus forcing you to only focus on what is happening in the now, in this very moment. Stainless steel and water-resistant to 100 feet. Assembled in Japan and the US.

        Comments about PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE WATCH:

        I purchased the smaller faced watch with the metal band for a Valentine's Day gift. I'm glad I opened the box and looked at it in advance. It is far more lightweight than I expected, and the watch face looks a bit cheap to be honest. For the price, I expected more from it. (Honestly, I would have even paid a little bit more. I will be returning this watch.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The product arrived loose in the box and not secured.

              I gave my boyfriend this watch as a birthday present. He really loves it and it looks great on him. The silver band is a little narrow compared to other men's watches so I wouldn't recommend it for guys with large wrists. Over all I think it looks very sleek and modern, fits well, and is a great conversation starter.

              This watch is fun to show off. Te latch mechanism is a bit flimsy ad feels unreliable - but it hasn't broken yet.

              Comments about PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE WATCH:

              This watch is just as beautiful in person as it is on the website. The quality of the strap is amazing. It's tight metal mesh and looks like it will wear very well over time. The strap is a tiny bit too tight and is not easily adjustable (if at all), but I still highly recommend it. Very cool watch!

              Service and delivery comments:

              The delivery was faster than fast, the product arrived in excellent condition and the product packaging itself was VERY well done. I've only recently found this site, but I will be purchasing from Uncommon Goods again soon.

              Great reminder to be in the present and great anniversary present. The clasp was a little difficult to figure out at first, but husband loves wearing it.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Boxed together and nicely wrapped up with a bow and card. Very nice and very, very fast shipping. Was totally worth the extra $

              Comments about PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE WATCH:

              It was a great 11th anniversary present and it was something he really liked receiving. The clasp at first was like a bit of a puzzle figuring out how to connect it, but now that he has it, it is something he enjoys showing off to others.

              Nice boxing and arrived packaged together nicely with a bow.

              Lucky it came in one piece

              Verified Buyer

              Comments about PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE WATCH:

              It's hard to tell what time it is, but then I am reminded that it is the present so it doesn't seem quite as important!

              Service and delivery comments:

              The packaging was completely TRASHED. Box was open on one side, the packing material -- a wadded up piece of paper -- was completely inadequate. The really nice box the watch came in was broken and I had to throw it away.

              So -- love the watch, but if that was an example of how you package expensive items, I won't be shopping with you again.
