PRODUCT STORY
Discover the Higgs Boson right on your wrist—no Large Hadron Collider needed! In this dynamic watch, the recently discovered God Particle takes the form of a personal accessory, in which this elusive physics phenomenon takes a physical form. Displaying the Higgs Boson decaying into other bosons during a collision, this hypothetical scenario whirls in a mystifying spiral on the watch's face. A tremendous timepiece for physics fanatics, math mavens, science buffs, and those who'd like to honor the discovery of the Higgs Boson in the most fashionable way possible. Japanese and quartz movements. Imitation leather band. Made in China.

We think the Higgs Boson Watch will make a great gift for the physics fan who's peculiarly particular when it comes to telling time. Does this particle-promoting piece have your vote?

This seems to be trying to cash in on a trendy that's already passed. Appealing design visually, and might be something that people who love math, science and physics would like. Concern that fake leather band will get damaged or torn and cause unhappy shoppers.

I see the point but it is not for me.

I love nerdy stuff like this! And there's always a niche clientele for particular items and gifts like this. My geologist husband is a good example. He would looove this, as would all his geo-buddies. I'd love to buy one right now, in fact, since my husband's birthday is coming up soon.

Not really sure of the science behind it, but it's beautiful.

Could be fun for the physics nut, though.
