Times Are A-Changing

Daylight slipping between your fingers? Keep time on your side with Daniel Will-Harris' graphic nod to the ever-shifting skies with a watch that fades from light to dark, and back again every 20 seconds. It captures the fleeting nature of time--all while telling time, of course. Two polarized discs spin to ticking seconds to create the artful illusion. The band is made using durable kevlar and the brushed stainless steel face has no visible lugs providing a seamless connection from band to watch case. Made In China with Japanese & Chinese components.

        Comments about TWILIGHT WATCH:

        The watch is a gift for my boyfriend and both he and I were really excited when we saw it. However, I was a little nervous about it because it's so expensive. When it came, it was exactly as pictured but a little smaller. I think it's priced too highly, $60 is probably the max I would have paid for it if it were for me. There were a couple quality issues. The clasp feels cheap, the edging on one of the smaller pieces had glue exposed, and the band is not attached to the watch on the sides. On the back of the watch, two metal bars anchor the band on, which is concerning because of the possibility of breakage. I wish this website had included pictures depicting the size and a back view of the watch, so I could see exactly what I was getting when I purchased it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was in exactly 3 days, the minimum specified.

        Hmmmm.... it's different and may be that perfect gift for someone you cannot think up anything else for - interesting idea!

        125 buckaroos for such an ugly design? im sorry but it looks like something made at a kiddie craft shop

        other than the estimated price being too high (in my opinion) this is a fantastic item

        Nicole
        Vote: Thumbs up!

        This timepiece is beautiful and novel. I only wonder if the constant switching from light to dark would be distracting.

        Jo Ann

        Would be more inclined to purchase at a lower price.

        LOVE the style--but the blinking might be a bit much.

        Laurel

        Too pricey.

        Cool idea, but probably wouldn't every buy it for myself.

        Love the polarized filters idea but, it's too pricey!

        Katie

        Is it just me or are watches hard enough to read already?

        yoanna
        Vote: Thumbs up!

        clever, but not worth the price in my opinion.

        KAREN
        Vote: Thumbs up!

        Cool designs for the watch enthusiast, but the price is too high.

        Renee

        It's a unique and intriguing idea, but I wonder if "sustainability is a part of this decision," if it is made "in a more socially and environmentally responsible manner," and if it "contains recycled components." The description doesn't really say. I'm on the fence with this one. The idea reminds me of something you might see in the Fossil collection, but without the known value you get when you buy a Fossil item, I'm not sure if the value is worth the price.

        I think the constant changing face of the clock would be distracting. Who wears watches these days anyway?

        Janet
        Vote: Thumbs down!

        Who wears a watch anymore?

        Tamara
        Vote: Thumbs down!

        So every few seconds it starts fading out to become harder to read correctly? This sounds distracting and annoying.

        Bonita
        Vote: Thumbs down!

        Pricey...constant changing could possbly be a big distraction.

        Mary

        Expensive, but may be just the thing for someone who has everything!

        pretty expensive and looks like it's more gimmicky than useful - hard to tell the time

        Very sleek, minimalist look.

        Great idea, but the price is too high

        Keely

        Neat idea, price doesn't seem quite right for how simplistic it looks.

        Kathryn
        Vote: Thumbs down!

        I personally don't like the design, and I wouldn't pay that high of a price for it, either.

        Heather

        This would be annoying!

        Lynne
        Vote: Thumbs down!

        Maybe it's just me, but I like to look at a watch and know what time it is without having to learn a new system (or even worse, be confronted with a dark watch face). Two hands works for me - the big hand is on the 12, the little hand is on the 2, it's 2 o'clock...

        Samantha
        Vote: Thumbs up!

        Another fun watch to love.

        Myrica

        Very cool idea. Definitely made for a person who loves watches. I don't think I could wear it because I would always be watching it!

        would be more inclined to buy if the price was right

        Hi there, I help buy our Jewelry and Accessories here at UncommonGoods. Thanks for all your feedback so far - it has been incredibly helpful to us! As you might expect, our suppliers and us use several factors to determine the right price for an item. Some of the key considerations to determine a retail price include 1) materials, 2) design and 3)for watches in particular, the quality of the movement. For example, the Twilight Watch uses Japanese movement. Hope this helps to know, and thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us.

        Seems a little pricey for what it is.

        cool idea, but priced too high

        I like this a lot, but the price is a little too high.

        Good watches are expensive. This doesn't seem overpriced for a high quality time piece.

        Kathleen

        Nice try but not quite there. Too hard to tell the time and stays dark too long.

        to much money for the gimmick

        Ashley

        The fade would be great if it faded as light naturally fades...but every 20 seconds would get tiresome.

        Rachelle
        Vote: Thumbs up!

        Very attractive and modern design. And $125 doesn't seem like too much for a quality watch that is water resistant. I'd like to know if there is a warranty for the watch though.

        Again, not easy to tell time, no date.

        Who needs this watch? And for $125? Talk about a waste of money. Just get a normal watch.

        I like the product, but think it would be neater if it faded less often.

        Product is interesting. But price is insane
