My favorite game of the year so far is 999 (Which I picked up thanks to the review by GB user LiK). That game was one of those that sank its hooks into you and kept them in you, especially after reaching one of the game's many endings.
Unfortunately, by the time I learned of this watch, the bundles were sold out, with zero chance of the watches coming back. Lucky for me (and bad for my wallet), something like a mere "sold out" wasn't going to stop me from getting a hold of one of these. So I searched and was able to pick up one of these from ebay, as an added bonus, the price was slightly lower than an arm and a leg.
The first thing I thought when I opened it up was how good it felt. The actual watch is made of metal, despite its plastic looking appearance. The watch is well put together as far as the metal plates go. Each section of it is connected by 3 plastic wires. It is very flexible, and the watch goes on rather nicely.
The display has a mirror-like finish to it, and when you press the right button on it, it displays the time with red leds. You can also set the date, and whether you want a 12 or 24 hour clock. The time is only displayed for a couple of seconds and then it turns off again. The time the watch stays on was a bit too short for my tastes.
Does this watch stand up as a normal watch? I'd have to say no, the little clasps that close the watch feel delicate, and repeated putting on and removing it seems like it would make short work of these. Not to mention the plastic wires holding the watch sections together can slide out if you pull on the watch hard enough. Sure, a stress test by pulling on the watch by each end may have been a bit much, but it's better than not knowing right?
I think the watch is pretty cool, but I have to be honest here. This thing is cool as a prop and not much more. If you are a big fan of the game and don't mind spending more than the cost of the game to pick one up, you can find one out there.
