- The Higgs boson is mostly just theoretical, even after the successful experiments at the Large Hadron Collider. But this watch is 100% real. The Higgs boson may have no spin, electric charge, or color change, but the Higgs boson watch has a nice imitation leather band and a spinning second hand that spirals around. The image shows what is believed to be evidence of the Higgs decaying into other bosons during a collision.
- Okay, let's be honest. None of us really understands this. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy this watch and look much smarter than your friends when you're wearing it. They'll just assume you must understand the finer points of particle physics much better than they do. Japanese quark - oops - quartz movement.
- FEATURES - A 33mm diameter face, genuine leather band, and accurate Japanese quartz movement. The watch is truly a delight. Battery included.
- COMES IN TIN GIFT BOX - Our watches make a great present for the intellectual or philosophical person in your life who just wants to keep accurate time. They come boxed in a beautiful tin that doubles as a display case for when you're being futuristic and keeping time on your phone.
- TWO YEAR WARRANTY - This attractive timepiece has a 2 year warranty provided by Amazon. See warranty details below. In addition, The Unemployed Philosophers Guild provides a one year manufacturer warranty.

Brought to You by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild
The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)
Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.
More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.

I work in a fairly physical job (a busy library where I do lots of heavy lifting), and so far I've had no problems with it holding together or keeping time. The hands (particularly the minute and second hands) are brightly colored and stand out pretty well even in dim light. The background (including the hour marks) are easy to see in bright light, but not so much in dim light. In dim light, all you can really see are the hands, which I think has a neat effect, personally.
The presentation is nice and of good quality. I was looking for something quirky and unusual, yet elegant enough to wear to work. This fit the bill perfectly. I'm very pleased with it and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a really nice, unusual wrist watch :)
