Ever since the LEGO Adult Watch range was first revealed in 2015, I wanted one. But their pricing put me off a little and despite trawling the web, no-one seemed to offer an in-depth look at these colourful officially licensed LEGO-themed timepieces. So when I spotted that many of the LEGO Adult watches had come down in price since their initial release, I decided to treat myself to one and as I couldn’t find the information I wanted when they first came out I thought it would be nice to give it a little review right here on BricksFans.com. Let’s not hang around any longer, time is ticking so let’s get our review on!
LEGO can make you feel many different emotions and now there’s a watch to celebrate all of them. Our LEGO Fan Club adult watch is the perfect addition to your accessories.

A sign of a good watch, is a good box and the LEGO Watch certainly comes out fighting from the off. The main box is housed in a protective slipcase, which doesn’t make it look anything special, that is until you find what’s inside. You’ll be greeted with a colourful box, complete with a 2×4 plate affixed to the lip of the lid. The top of the box features the four classic LEGO colours along with the logo. Perfectly matched to the LEGO brand on a whole.
Within the box, you’ll find a neatly displayed array of components which form the watch. Just like LEGO, the LEGO Watches also rely on their very own build system, dubbed the LEGO Watch System. This allows for numerous customisation of the watch. I went for the design known as ‘LEGO Fan Club’ this is a mainly blue watch with blue link strap and a collection of LEGO minifigure characters adorning the watch face. But as you can see below along with the watch, the additional elements included can be used to build your watch any way you like. The links can be clipped together just like LEGO elements, so you can change the layout of colours as well as making the watch strap longer or shorter if necessary.
Along with the additional links, you also get a more traditional type of watch strap. The included silicon strap features embossed 2×2 LEGO brick patterns and can simply be clipped to the main watch piece in place of the links. It’s not as fun looking as the link strap, but it’s nice to be given the choice.
But one of the best features is the interchangeable bezel. The blue ring around the watch face can be unscrewed and replaced with a different coloured bezel. This may be a simple change, but swapping the colour of the bezel completely changes the look of the whole watch and when you couple it with the different coloured links and additional strap, it’s as if you have a number of watches in one.
Another good sign of a good watch is the clasp. The link strap features a stainless steel butterfly clasp. This is engraved with the LEGO logo, which is a nice touch. The clasp itself is great quality and feels sturdy enough to withstand multiple uses. It’s also comfortable to wear, often these type of clasps can dig into your wrist, but after wearing it for a number of days now I’ve had no problems.
For those who like to know, the watch features a high quality Japanese Quartz movement and is water resistant up to 100 metres should you wish to take it for a dip. You’re also covered by a 2 year warranty and ClicTime are extremely helpful when it comes to replacement parts. Although I purchased this watch myself the lovely people at ClicTime kindly supplied a few additional elements including extra links, bezels and straps. Meaning I have even more customisation opportunities. Their website also has a means of requesting replacement parts should you need them.
As mentioned above despite really liking the various designs of the LEGO Watch Collection, when they were first launched, the price was a put off. But after actually seeing the watch up close, they are extremely well made and are presented is a great way too. They also manage to capture the fun nature of the LEGO brand as well as it’s buildable side.
As someone who loves LEGO as much as I do, I’m always looking for ways to share my passion for the brand, be it sets, books, clothing, bags etc. So this way is a great way to convey my love of LEGO in a unique way plus it’s also a great watch. So if you’ve ever been tempted by a LEGO Watch but haven’t been entirely convinced if you should get one. I certainly recommend them, especially at their new lower price.
