I used to wear a watch all the time – but these days I seem to rely on my phone all the time, mainly as I can just never find a watch I feel is right. But this one is pretty close.
Daniel Wellington have developed watches that are sleek, minimalistic and are available on a leather strap or Nato strap with names such as Classic Oxford, Classic Swansea and Classic Glasgow.
When I was contacted and asked if I would like to trial a Daniel Wellington watch I nearly went for the Oxford but the leather straps drew me in and in the end I decided Classic St Andrews was more up my street.
The first thing that grabbed me about this watch was how thin the face of it is (6mm), I don’t think I’ve come across one quite like it before and it means it actually catches less on your clothes while fitting close to your wrist. Plus you don’t get that ‘watch bulge’ you get with some.
The leather helps it fit comfortably around the wrist and although quite soft is obviously very sturdy as the whole watch comes across as really well made. The watch isn’t water resistant but to be honest would you even think of going swimming while wearing something so lovely?
It’s worth mentioning that you can buy all the straps separately so once you have the watch face you could collect the straps and change your look to how you feel each day.
The only down side to me is that I would have liked the face a little smaller the ladies watches come in at 36mm and the men’s at 40mm I think I could have done with maybe a 30mm, to have made it just the right size for me and made it my ‘perfect’ watch.
The Ladies Classic St Andrews costs $199 (around £124) you can buy that and check out the rest of the collect ladies and men’s online or check if there is a stockiest near you at: http://www.danielwellington.com/
