Winter Watch Kit
Fun, cute project but watch has short life
I did this craft with my mother last year. My watch died temporarily when I got it wet doing dishes; however, it revived after it dried. Both watches, however, only lasted about six months. For the price, I don't think I can complain. I just reworked it without the watch to wear as a bracelet. I would recommend that you purchase jewelry clamps to help secure your work; it is difficult to tie that elastic so it stays. At the very least, dab some super glue on your knots.

Great for gifts!
This was my first purchase from Oriental Trading and I could not have asked for a better experience. The kits arrived in a timely manner. Some of the beads were irregular, but the kits come with extras of beads so I had no problem finishing the watches. I also liked that the watch faces came with tabs to keep the batteries from running down during shipping/until I can deliver the gifts:)
I purchased to make for my Mother-in-law and Grandmother-in-law, I will definitely look to Oriental Trader for more gift craft kits in the future!
