Rakani Watch – When Stuck in Traffic is a Good Thing #holidaygiftguide

No one wants to get stuck in traffic especially if you have to be somewhere to meet someone at a specified time. This predicament is perfectly embodied in the Rakani Stuck in Traffic watch design. It’s the perfect holiday gift idea for men who have to deal with road hassles. If you can’t get to your date on time, at least you’ll be fashionably late. This is actually the principle behind the Rakani Fashionably Late watch collection. Not that it condones being late, it simply gives people a quirkier way to tell time, regardless of whether they are running late or not.

Get Stuck in Traffic for the Man in Your Life

Stuck in Traffic is an elegant black timepiece that definitely does not look like it’s been on the road for a long time. The black stainless steel band and face of this watch is accentuated with the Swarovski crystals at the bottom and the white hour and minute markers. The crystals in the design are supposed to mimic how cars that are stuck in traffic look. There are also hour bars that break the crystals on the 4th to the 8th hour markers, the time during which the evening rush hour traffic is at its peak. This Rakani watch retails for $250 and comes with a 2-year Limited Warranty.

Creative Entrepreneur

The Rakani watch company sprung from an idea that came after a joking quip from its founder Chirayu Patel’s girlfriend. She asked if the watch he gave her for his birthday was supposed to be a way for her not to be late all the time. This finance professional turned designer and entrepreneur shifted from the structured watch face designs to his own creative take on being late and on time concepts. Patel combined classic style, creative and meaningful designs, and custom quality in the watches in the Fashionably Late collection.

Defying Time and Standards

The other designs in the Rakani Fashionably Late collection are equally fun yet classic and elegant in their own way. “What Time?” is another great holiday gift idea for men with its classic black and white combo. It has a jumble of numbers at the bottom part of the dial, breaking the standard circular arrangement of the numbers around a marked dial. Women don’t have to be left behind with the “Ish.” This watch design has pink squiggly hour markers and similar smaller black ones as minute markers (the squiggles are actually used an “approximate” sign in mathematical equations). It also has a metallic case with the same pink shade and a white leather strap. There are several other interesting timepieces in the Rakani Fashionably Late collection that’s worthy of your time and attention.

That’s a nice looking watch but I still don’t quite get the traffic at a standstill look (shrug)


lola December 24, 2013 at 7:48 pm

love the slogan: fashionably late!
the one with all the numbers below is quite nice
the problem is that i think they are a bit expensive for its quality. i have a MK watch, but also tons of other watches but not as expensive as these ones :(


Linda Meyers-Gabbard December 26, 2013 at 6:41 pm

What a stunning time piece. I would give this to my hubby. He would love it. Hevk I would wear it.

Very interesting post to read. I have seen one of these watches but I had no idea that it was one in a line if watches not what the line was called. The history of how the line was created is rather humorous but is also information I have always enjoyed reading.


Sarah L January 5, 2014 at 7:14 am

That is a beautiful watch. My father would look good with it.


DASHA January 5, 2014 at 12:04 pm
