Beer and watch fans may have new trick up their sleeve

First published: 12-03-2010

Many people tend to be put off by cheaper watches with little in the way of design on the face itself, though wearers of a new offering from a clever company will literally give them a trick up their sleeve.

That's because Happy Hour Watches will be allowing buyers of its recent release the chance to tell the time and, if they want, open a bottle of beer at the same time - all because of a fancy clasp.

There is an analogue face as well as a digital display to give the time, as well as a date function. The watch face itself has the words "Happy Hour" in red across the 12 and five pointers, implying that 17:00 is the perfect time to crack open a beer.

It also uses Japanese quartz movement and Chinese LCD movement, contained in a silver alloy case with a stainless steel back plate and a wide black leather band, as well as the patented buckle.

This week, it was revealed that Lego and Star Wars were joining together once more to release watches for children and adults alike.
