    What watch for a 23 year old hippie college graduate?

    My sister is graduating college and will be moving to Mexico for a time. She is a hippie kind of girl (I call her a communist, she calls me a republican). I would like to get her a watch. It doesnt have to be expensive as I have already purchased other gifts for her. I was just thinking a watch would be good for her while she is in Mexico.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi -

    My kid sister went through the same kind of period. Oy vey.

    My guess is that she'd probably think that wearing a watch was like, so uncool and shows that you've bought into the whole capitalist controlling mentality time set.

    Sigh. Have great patience...

    And a watch? Why does she need a watch? Material possessions are so bourgeois. Make a contribution in her name to the Conservationist Society, or the GOP.

    A Rolex GMT.

    Hey, if it was good enough for Che, I would think any Hippie communist would embrace it.



    Or you could just tell her you wanted to help support some underprivileged Chinese, so you bought an Alpha instead.

    Since Lysanderxiii beat me to Che Guevara's famous watch pic, how 'bout something more affordable?
    Unfortunately I couldn't find anything less offensive to my tastes, but who knows, she might like it?
    It certainly fit's the criteria you specified. (please note the highlighted text below)

    *quote from site* "What does your watch say about you? Bold and ultra-mod, these sleek silicone watches speak volumes about your sense of high design. Winner of the coveted international Red Dot design award, this watch scrolls a message across the wide digital display: Pink watch reads "Love and Peace" and the White watch reads "World Peace No War!!" The Black watch reads "Save the Earth" and the Orange watch reads "Save the Ocean." Flick your wrist, and the time appears, while another flick flashes the date. Each comes in a funky capsule gift box. The 1.75"-wide face gets extra heft from the soft 1.25"-wide silicone band with slide-and-hook clasp. Water resistant to 3 ATMs."


    While I'm being so charitable w/ my time I thought I would offer up a few suggestions for a nice gift basket to go with the watch.Peace,
    J.

    Think The Earth



    Description: Watch Northern Hemisphere or WN-1 was created by a team of artists and designers from Japan with the manufacturing assistance of Seiko Instruments Inc. The bezel is 45 mm in diameter and the entire case is made of light weight Titanium. The crystal is super tough Hardlex and is of optical quality to create the effect of the Earth floating inside the frame. The movement is Quartz with a custom set of 3 reducing gears in the drive train and is powered by a 10 year Lithium battery. The black band is made of "Sophista"; a sports type synthetic fabric with exceptional wear and comfort.

    The virtual earth rotates once a day as the real earth does in a counter clockwise direction with the time zone indicator pointing to the correct hour on the bezel. The orange dot serves as the minute hand rotating clockwise as in a traditional timepiece. It is water resistant to 100 meters and can also be used as a desk clock. Also pictured is the fabulous Titanium mirror bezel; 14 mm in height with a high polish concave inner surface to create interesting reflections of the virtual Earth. Sold separately for 75 dollars. The Think the Earth project is a non profit organization founded to promote Earth awareness and provide aid for distressed children.
