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.

Unattractive, Uncomfortable, No Real Function

I don't mean to pile on the Fake Roley, but a bad product is a bad product. The Fake Roley is unattractive, uncomfortable and has no real function. That's how "this curious accessory takes the prevailing notions of watches and bracelets, and flips them on their heads." This is an ornate Livestrong bracelet, minus the charity. Spend your money elsewhere.

I don't get it.

I'm not sure about this one. I guess the concept of having it there as a piece of costume jewelry is ok, but not for me. I wear a real watch 90% of the time. In my opinion this is just odd.

This is Stupid!

This may be the dumbest thing I have ever received. Who would pay $40 for a bracelet that looks like a watch? I wish I could have sent this back for a refund.

Odd product

While I don't hate this product, I don't really get it and never plan on using it. I understand the concept behind it, but it seems like it should be a little thinner and less bulky.

Cool plastic, no function
Sampled

I must admit, I was really excited to open the box and see this. Then I wore it for a day at work and cursed myself for how many times I'd look down to check the time and realize I was wearing a completely fake plastic watch. I guess that's a good thing - to think what you're wearing is real...until you realize it's not. It's hard to believe it's a $40 plastic piece of costume jewelry that stretches to the point of breaking whenever I put it on or take it off. Cool in theory, not in reality.

Am I Missing Something Here?

I don't quite understand what I'm supposed to do with this child's toy. It quite literally is a rubber watch made to look like a Rolex and serves all of about .. hmm, ZERO purpose. What baffles me the most is that the retail price of this thing is $40!

Horrible and not intersting.
Sampled

At first I thought this watch was going to be interesting to try out. When I received it I didn't like how it felt and it didn't fit around my wrist. The quality doesn't seems that great and I just don't find the point in this product. It definitely is not for me and it is the worst Birchbox product I have ever received.

Silly

I think this is more of a kids toy to than a good watch or conversational piece. It would be nicer if it was functional.

Great Idea but too small
Sampled

I love the idea of it because watches have become obsolete but its way too small. Not all men have dainty little wrists lol.

Ummmm ok

My husband got this in his birchbox. At first we were kind of intrigued, until we took it apart and couldn't get it back together again. He is never planning on wearing it (he's not much of an accessories person though). I could see it being a cool, ironic accessory, but $40 seems kinda steep for a foam watch.
