It's funny and clever, but I cannot recommend it.
The concept of this watch is undoubtedly fantastic and innovative. The watch face is very nicely executed with a white background and it features John Cleese in the center. Cleese's legs are set as the minute and hour hands and his rolled-up umbrella ticking off the seconds. Other than his image the watch face has stylized numbers, raised markers, and other decorations. The adjustment knob has a decorative touch. It comes with a black leather band. The idea behind to recreate the popular silly walks from Monty Python on a watch is a nice way to connect with their fans and a tribute to the masterpiece.
The only hitch I faced when I bought the watch was its wrist band, which seemed slightly taut and inflexible. I spent few minutes trying to bend the strap back and forth before I tied it around my wrist. Now, with over a period of usage it has become less stiff. For all those fans of Monty Python I would highly recommend as it can surely cheer them up seeing John Cleese with his gawky legs doing silly walks on their wrist throughout the day.
It does have a strange quirk that I noticed, instead of just having Mon to Sun, to indicate the day, it seems to have extra days in languages other than English. For instance last on Thursday it reads "THU" but sometime after midnight I noticed it read "Juev" which is assume is for Jueves (Thursday in Spanish) before moving on to "FRI." Don't quote me on this, I was really groggy that night and had quite a bit to drink, so I may have imagined it.
My main complaint about the watch is that the band is a bit stiff, then again I've only been wearing it on and off for about a week now. The watch itself is a good size, but the crown is a bit large and may dig into one's wrist every now and then but it's a minor inconvenience for the price. Hopefully they will stock this again because last year, the government spent less on Silly walks that on national defence.
