Are you the type that feels naked without their watch? Recently, I broke my watch, and with such a hectic lifestyle, it’s unsurprising. My glasses always go missing, my finest jewellery disappears and I never have anything clean to wear. But when it came to my watch, I just didn’t feel complete without it. I’d had it a long time, I have to admit, but I needed a replacement…and quick!
When you have a busy family, time is of the essence and I had lost mine! Continually looking down, I started to ponder my replacement.
In an attempt to save some pennies this month, I have resorted to multiple tactics. From keeping the lights and heating to a minimum now it’s coming into spring/summer to arranging many free activities for the little ones, it’s been surprisingly easy to become thrifty.
So, when considering my watch options, I decided to treat myself. I mean, when it comes to items like your watches, you pay for what you get and I needed a sturdy yet fashionable piece. At first, I looked online and discovered many options. From an extremely long list, I finally narrowed down my choices to six and here were some of my favourites from www.watches-of-switzerland.co.uk.
Which one do you reckon I went for?
Cartier’s Santos De Cartier Collection
A classic brand with an even better style, the Cartier’s Santos De Cartier Collection made the shortlist. With minimal and durable straps, I knew they would be able to handle the likes of a vibrant family and hectic lifestyle.
Omega De Ville Ladymatic Collection
I love the feminine and luxurious designs in this collection with the face of the watch being held by just a subtle bar no thicker than half a mm. In a range of colours from rose to silver, I had a little too much choice…
Bell & Ross Vintage Collection
With just three watches in their vintage collection, Bell & Ross have definitely gone for quality over quantity. Their style is very military-inspired with clear dials and sturdy wristbands making them perfect for families in a rush. I love the simple, clear design…
Chopard’s Happy Sport Collection
Again, with just three styles, Chopard has to be the most glamourous and luxurious watch brand. The urban sports theme was again very strong in the spring/summer catwalks during the winter months and Chopard have reflected that in their Happy Sport Collection. I absolutely loved the classic Happy Sport with its duo colour scheme and beautiful clean face.
Technically men’s watches, but many styles can suit a female just as much as a male! Plus, you can get his and hers too. In this collection, I absolutely loved the Oris Artelier style complete with traditional leather strap and beautiful clockwork design you could see through.
GC Precious Collection
GC Watches are flawless. Swiss made, stunning yet practical, their Precious Collection had this stunning white number complete with rose gold trim and clear yet elaborate face. One of the more reasonably priced, this one was a specific divers watch so you know it would be able to handle the elements…
Did you guess correctly? Well, although I haven’t made my final answer just yet, I have narrowed it down to either the classic Oris Artelier or the beautiful Chopard Happy Sport. Keep your eyes peeled!
