There are a lot of things people miss
about their childhood, whether it’s running through the sprinklers in your
underwear, passing off vaguely pie-shaped wet dirt as culinary excellence or
those rulers that could bend, fold and snap around your wrist when you hit
yourself with them. Seeing as running around in your underwear and baking
mud-pies both cease to be acceptable behaviour over the age of about three, you
can still enjoy the bendy rulers part of childhood, with new and improved time-telling
abilities and save up to 58% on Schlapp Watches.
It’s all very well and good to have a watch that just screams about how great your job is and how much money you’re making, because hey look, it’s gold and has little sparkly bits on it. Unfortunately, not only are some of those watches more uncomfortable than pure-wool briefs, the metal ones turn your arm an odd shade of green and the leather-strapped ones smell like a on old sofa left in the sun for too long.
Though they don’t come in gold and they’re not made of leather, the Schlapp Watches are still better for your image than hanging a grandfather-clock around your neck. The fun and funky time pieces come in a range of bright colours, like fire-truck red, that will brighten up any outfit quicker than a game of paintball. Besides the fact that the watches look funky, they have the added bonus of being really entertaining – everybody remembers the bendy-rulers from school that provided hours entertainment and the watches work on almost the same principle; just slap it on your wrist and the strap wraps around all on its own. While this could be very distracting, there’s no doubt that it’s very fun. One-size fits all means you also don’t have to worry with removing links or super-gluing the watch to your wrist to stop it from falling off. This versatility combined with the fact that they’re more comfortable than a basket full of kittens in front of a fireplace and stylish to boot make the Schlapp Watches ideal for pretty much anyone; polo-playing prep-school kids or the guys who hike up Mount Everest in nothing but their gym-shorts will marvel at how comfortable it is. Even the people who think finding-the-remote is an extreme sport won’t find anything to complain about.
Timely Fact: Originally, the Declaration of Independence was meant to be signed by 57 people, but the last signatory, John Albach never made it to the signing. First he blamed it on the fact that he’d found an overturned bucket of gold leaves in his car and needed to clean it; later, he admitted that he’d just lost track of both his watch and the time.
