There is something about a good watch, yet these days we don't seem to wear them as much as we once did. Perhaps due to the fact we all have a phone in our hands most of the time, has led to the decline of a wristwatch? A few weeks ago I was contacted by Adexe, who asked if I would love to try a new to their range watch; the Meek Petit Rosegold and after seeing the pictures I knew I had to have a closer look.

Who are Adexe London?
Adexe pride themselves on being a non-conformist brand, they look to provide finely crafted, unique timepieces at affordable prices.

Wanting to stand out from the crowd for not only their timepieces but how they create them Adexe are definitely a brand to watch this year.
Meek Petite Rosegold
According to Adexe the Meek style watch is meant to portray serenity, simplicity and security. It includes a subtle date indicator and oversized Roman numerals, with minute markers laying between each one.
100% produced and designed in-house, the makeup of the Meek Petite Rosegold includes a hand polished stainless steel case, curved hardened crystal glass, a Japanese Miyota GN15 movement and a handmade stainless mesh band open spring bar. The watch also has a 3ATM water rating (which if your not sure about means it is OK for everyday use, being rainproof and splash proof, but you aren't going to want to wear this watch in the swimming pool or shower).
What do I think of the Meek Petite Rosegold?
I was really impressed by the look and feel of this watch, the strap itself is well made and unlike other mesh watches I have tried in the past is yet to pinch my skin. It has been made so before first wear you can size the watch to you by fitting the two ends together, once you have set you only need to clip and unclip the clasp, making it much easier to take on and off than I first assumed it may be.
The date and time set up is thankfully simple to do, I always worry you will have to keep spinning the hands round and round to get to the correct date. However, you do not. In fact, all you need to do is pull out the toggle on the side one click to set the date and two clicks to set the time.
Despite the size of the face (32.5 mm diameter) and the fact it has a stainless steel strap, this watch is surprisingly lightweight. I didn't at any point feel like my wrist was being weighted down.
So far I really cannot find fault with this watch, it is so easy to read (even down to the minute), it is comfortable to wear and it just feels like a real quality timepiece. For me, the black against the rose gold really works.
How can you buy the Meek Petite Rosegold?
The Meek Petite Rosegold is just one of a number of beautiful watches for both mails and females on the Adexe website. This watch, in particular, comes in at £95, however, right now you can get 15% off across the whole store by using the code SARAH15 at checkout. How awesome is that?
