    Great gift. Bought for sister-in-law who already owns lots of stylish accessories, so it was nice to find something unique that fit in with her appreciation for re-purposed items.

        Unique, fascinating gift. Wish buyer had some choice of keys, or at least was able to select keys (unlucky numbers, etc.) that were NOT wanted. Difficult to fasten clasp.

        Comments about Type Key Watch:

        I'm a retired school secretary and my career started on the old, clunky dinosaurs. How could I have known then that typewriter keys would define me? For my retirement, my school gave me a typewriter key bracelet and I loved the sentiment. I looked at the complementary watch bracelet many times and finally I decided to splurge and buy one from Uncommon Goods.

        Keys are falling off the watch

          Comments about Type Key Watch:

          The watch is very cool, but 2 of the key faces were off when it arrived and one more has come off since. They re-attach with a strong super glue, but it was disappointing that the original solder joint was so small and weak.

            I'm gifting this watch to my mother for Christmas. She's a stylish English teacher, and she'll love it. It's a bit heavy, but it's definitely going to be a conversation starter.

            Comments about Type Key Watch:

            Bought this as a gift for my infinitely better half. She has very sophisticated taste so it's always a challenge to find something she will like, and usually I don't get her costume jewelry. However, this is really different and whimsical and I'm sure she will like it. It is nicely made; I just wish the brand was a "recognized" brand of watch movement.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Exceptional service as always.

                Comments about Type Key Watch:

                My husband bought this watch for me for Christmas 2007, and I have loved it and had many compliments on it. Within 7 months, though, the silver coating around the actual watch face has rubbed down to a copper color. For the price and specialness of the watch, I'd expect the watch parts to be a little higher in material quality.
