Paper Watches

From Wholly's Blog: "Geneva-based watchmaker Altanus designed these cool paper watches, called 'The Patch.'"

"Created from biodegradeable paper, the LED watches are waterproof and tear-resistant. Inspired by papier-mâché, the super-thin watch weighs just 11 grams and comes in 11 different neon colors."

$34 when they become available.

 I wonder why, given the ability to easily publish a perfect color version of the strip as opposed to my shoddy scan, I choose not to.

Perhaps best not to inquire too deeply here, what?
