…Your watch is too sober?

Happy Hour Watch

The Happy Hour watch not only reminds you when to pop open a cold one, it also helps you get the job done with a bottle opener that’s hidden right in the buckle.

It’s the watch MacGyver, James Bond or Chuck Norris would wear if they didn’t already have much more kick-ass ways of opening bottles.

Can’t decide between leather and steel, gold and silver, or futuristic and simplistic? Easy, just go with all of the above and stop worrying about what’s on your wrist.

The split-faced hybrid watch is half of one watch and half of another, and it’s all been crammed together and combined to give you the best of both worlds.
