Beautiful Designs

7/6/2019 by Sandra

So impressed with the design - I bought 2. My issue, is with the mechanics of the watch, Setting was not that easy, and when you took it off and on...you had to re-set.. Annoying to say the least. After a couple of times, could no longer set.More > < Less

I collect unique watches and this one definitely caught my eye. I was so impressed with the colors. It feels good and comfortable on my wrist. The fact that it's water resistant is a real plus! I would have given this a 5 star rating but I cannot seem to figure out how to set the date and time. I have read the limited directions but still can't set it. Disappointing.More > < Less

Missing Instructions

12/17/2018 by Margaret

Did not find any instructions on how to change the battery or how to adjust the time. Would have been helpful. Other than that, the quality was what I expected. I love using unique materials to create beautiful pieces. Love your patterns. Fix the instruction issue & you’ll get a 5 ⭐️ Next time.More > < Less

Pretty, comfortable but keeps changing date & time on its own

12/16/2018 by Cynthia

I love the variety of designs. It fits very well - I've always had trouble finding a watch with a buckle band (I don't like stretch bands) that's long enough and with holes in the right places. This watch solves all the problems I've had with leather bands.

However, I've had to reset the watch sometimes multiple times each day I wear it. Sometimes I look at the watch and find that it has gone into date or time reset mode which usually isn't a problem as I just step through the set steps and it's usually all I have to do. Other times I find that a setting has actually changed - the month or date is ahead of or behind what it should be or the hour or minute is ahead of or behind what it should be. Occasionally I find it counting seconds instead of the expected date or time display. I'm pretty much surprised when I find the display is correct.

I'm keeping the watch because it's prettier and fits better than any other watch I have. If I think the display is wrong I can verify it with my phone, but I'd hope something could be done to make it less sensitive to what apparently are light touches on the set/reset buttons. I'll probably try positioning a piece of transparent tape over the buttons.

Not Good

12/13/2018 by JoEllen

I am disappointed. However, I suppose it is as advertised -- a tyvek product. It looks like paper and not a suitable item for a gift.

About I Like Paper

Tyvek® Timepieces

The water-resistant watches from I Like Paper are all handmade in Berlin, Germany, and come from the creative mind of Maker and graphic designer Marc Aurel Hartung. He wanted to try something different when it came to watches because he felt like traditional timepieces had become dated, with many of us relying on our phones to check the time. So Marc turned to an unexpected—but eco-friendly—material: Tyvek® paper.

Tyvek is tough for paper. Even though it’s lightweight and flexible, it’s tear-proof and water-resistant. Marc chose Tyvek because of its long-lasting durability and because it’s recyclable, too. Artist- and illustrator-designed prints pack the watches for grown-ups and kids with colorful personality. The result of I Like Paper’s by-hand approach is an anything-but-ordinary watch made to stand out for how it’s made and how fun it is.
