Grey Area Fake Roley

It’s the 21st century, baby: we’ve got flying cars, super-powered phones, and a crazy thing called Snapchat, so why limit art to your living room wall? Designed by New York artist Shelter Serra, this curious accessory takes the prevailing notions of watches and bracelets, and flips them on their heads. Perfect for the daring tastemaker, or those who thrive on the unexpected.

Why is everyone hating on this?
Sampled

I was most excited about this item. Everyone is harping with, "Why wear something that has no use?" It is an accessory. Who really uses watches anymore? I think it is quirky fashion and I love it. I wore it out the first night I opened the box.

Interesting and Artsy
Sampled

I saw this on the sneak peek and hoped I would receive one and I did! Unfortunately I can't wear it because I have tiny wrist. It doesn't serve any purpose but I dig it's uniqueness but don't dig the price for a piece of rubber in the shape of a watch.

Cool Factor
Sampled

I was unsure about the idea of this when I received it, but after wearing it around I think it's a really cool product. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it/ questions about it. I don't think I would have bought it for $40 dollars though, and I wish I had received the grey one in my box instead of black.

It's not for everyone
Sampled

It's not for everyone, to be sure. Personally, I have watches, but rarely wear them except for formal occassions, usually checking the time on my phone. This is a cheeky accessory that makes fun of that fact while continuing Grey Area's obsession with making affordable silicone copies out of expensive or old items and odditites.

Some folks get impassioned about getting them in their boxes-send them to me :-)

Definitely Unique
Sampled

I was expecting to HATE this, but when I got it in my box and wore it for a while, I was swayed. It's a very modern design that doesn't look as bizarre when worn as it does in the photos above, too. I will use this to accessorize simple outfits in the future.

interesting idea
Sampled

This is an interesting idea. It's a bot of social commentary, and a bit joke. I just don't think I am cool enough to actually pull this off.

Ok
Sampled

Well, I'm not really a watch-wearer, so it is sort of an interesting concept to have an accessory mimicking a watch. It is very loose and just sort of hangs there on my wrist which I'm not a huge fan of, but I like the concept. If it were tighter then I'd probably be a bigger fan.

It is what it is
Sampled

I gave it a try, and I have to say, it is a fun conversation starter. For me it worked only on a night I was playing it super-casual and could care less about the time. Otherwise, while I don't often look at my watch, I like to have my silver/chrome wrist-piece than rubberized black plastic. That said, I appreciate having it, but I don't see any use for it beyond that.
