I looked at the complete line of watches they produce. In addition to the "NOW" and "LATER" that you mentioned, they also have "SOON", "THEN", and "WHENEVER". I did turn one over and on the back were the words "Don't Panic" in a friendly typeface.

Is it a bracelet, or is there a timepiece cleverly concealed on it?

No, no timepiece underneath. That doesn't make it a bracelet though - it's just an extraordinarily accurate watch.

I found one I quite like. Although it actually tells time in addition to telling you that the time is "now."

Shouldn't it say 'THEN'?
By the time the photons have reached your eyeball, and your brain has processed the information the watch's 'Now' will have passed.

But since all sense is basically our brain's interpretation, reality only occurs within our own mind. The watche's "now" is irrelevant to our own since of Now. Nor do we truly exist "in the moment". Every sensation is compared to past memories. Cognition is recognition, and it's this internal comparison between sensory input and recollection that gives us a sense of "moving through" time.

Hey it's 2:01pm Saturday. Drunk posting is allowed, right?

Now that one I do like, though it would be better without the "NOW"...

Drunk posting or not, "NOW" must be very hard to interpret; lasting a time infinitely shorter than a mere thought....

Of course it is allowed. So is posting after sex. Now a post-posting cigarette may be a horse of a different color. (Green for menthol, red for regular, tan/gold for light.)

Drunk posting is always allowed. We actually got some RAIN today ... so I may make myself a Blueberry Martini.

drunk posting is actively encouraged, in fact. i'll let you decide for yourselves concerning the post-posting cigarettes, you're all adults.

I couldn't find a picture of my favorite watch, given to me by my mother for Christmas about 20 years ago. It was an LCD display and had different astronomical objects for hour and minute indicators and a little star that moved around for the second hand, I think. Sadly, I left it in the pocket of a pair of pants that then went through the laundry, and it was no more.

I suppose this might make an adequate substitute:
