|A Modify watch
An upstart watch company called Modify Watches contacted me and offered to send me a free watch. Since free is good, a couple of e-mails led to the arrival of this very cool watch and two interchangeable bands last week.
The watch pictured is the Modify Mini. The watch face is an inexpensive, self-contained, unit with a Japanese movement that can easily be removed from the band and placed into another band. The bands are made of a very comfortable velvety rubber and come any many hip colors. If you stretch the band, you can pop the watch face out and put it into another watch. Changing the look of a Modify Watch is much, much, easier than conventional watch bands.
The collection comes in two sizes - Mini and Classic. If you check out the Modify Watches website, you might wonder how big the watches are. The Mini is about the size of a regular wrist watch and the Classic is a big watch that would make any hip-hop artist proud. The classic would probably look great with a Flavor Flav style alarm clock around your neck! Indeed, the company describes all of these watches as "Dope!" Here is my Mini pictured with a considerably more uptight Timex Weekender for comparison purposes. The second Modify watch band is underneath the two watches.
