Slap goes the promotional watch!

So today I found my latest, greatest promotional product obsession.

The promotional slap-on watch.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, I said slap-on promotional watch.

The 90’s are back with a vengeance.

Just like the old fabric-covered metal bracelets, except their innards (whose material is at this time unknown to me) are coated in super-friendly silicone material. These brightly-colored watches have so far won my coveted prize as my favorite product of 2010. Of course it is early in the year, and I’m sure our readers know how excited I get about products. (See: Robot Pencil Sharpener, Sweatshirt Waterbottle, Terra Porcelain Cup – just to name a few!)

With its retail design, bright colors and large 3-1/8” x 1” imprint area, your branding gets front and center visibility.

I never thought a watch would make my list of number ones in the promotional products world, but this one seems to be a genius idea. Not only could you (very successfully) use these promotional watches for school related/teenage and youth promotions, but 20 and 30-somethings will love this flashback to their early school years.

I know my colleague, Heather and I immediately reflected back to the original slap-bracelets of yesteryear. The ones that had a tendency of losing their fabric coating and then scratching the user when the bare metal pierced the skin upon the slap-application. The originals that were banned in school, yet traded on the fly outside of the schoolyard.

Yes my friends. The good ol’ days. (Insert dramatic sigh here)

Okay, now back to business. I can’t get you a review on the functionality of this product as of yet since I’m currently waiting on my personal sample. (I just couldn’t wait to blog about this find!) However, I’m sure I’ll have a review for you soon, so keep looking out!

I want one too! They look like a lot of the Spring watches from the latest Nordstrom catalog- so trendy and cute!


I’m so glad you wrote this because I JUST saw the product on our website and didn’t realize it was slap-on. This would be a great giveaway for a college radio station or hip start-up. I want a sample too!

Agreed! Love this product… ordered a sample in white and can’t wait to rock it :) Hope they don’t get banned at work…
