“ Brand: Accurist / Type: Wrist Watch „
A slim rope style bracelet adorned with four beads. It fastens with the type of clasp that you would do a necklace up with and this fastens on a short chain so you can set the length to fit. The face of the watch is Mother of Pearl, it is very plain to showcase the beauty of the pearl with no numerals just a single Swarovski crystal denoting where 12 should be. The face is encircled with slightly smaller crystals and the effect is very sparkly and feminine. The watch is silver plated.
The watch is very lightweight so is comfortable to wear, some days the weight of the watch face makes the bracelet swing round so that the face is on my inner arm but that doesn't always happen. It doesn't make my skin itch because it's silver plated not silver coloured and hangs in a good position for seeing the time without having to adjust the sit of the bracelet.
HOW DOES IT PERFORM?
The watch keeps perfect time and you very quickly get used to the scale of the dial so you can see a precise time even without the numerals. The hands move smoothly and look attractive set against the Mother of Pearl. The winder is smooth to operate and the whole build of the watch is high quality.
WHAT I THINK
I have a small collection of watches of a similar style to this one with this one definitely being in my top five. It's very feminine and pretty but would benefit from the addition of a charm or hanging crystal to give it more character. I think of it as a summer watch because it is so light, I have worn it out at night as it's so slim that it will compliment or blend into an outfit as you want it to. It looks smart with a neon sleeveless top and skinny jeans, adding a touch of class to a casual outfit but also is nice worn with a LBD to a party or special night out.
4 Dooyoo Stars.
Never really being a big fan of watches, I struggle to remember to put them on and get in the habit of not wearing one. I received this watch as a gift from my parents at Christmas and strangely haven't forgotten to wear it once since then! This watch takes a similar concept to the Pandora bracelets and as I wear one, it goes lovely with this watch.
Some people wear watches for different occasions but I love this watch so much I just wear it all the time, despite it being quite glitzy.
The Accurist Charmed Crystal Row watch is so pretty and feminine and has a slim stainless steel design. The clock face is a mother of pearl dial and has Swarovski crystals around the edges. It comes with 4 beads which are really pretty yet simple and have crystals around them. The bracelet is much the same style as my Pandora bracelet and is a rope style with a clasp fastening. The thing that I really love about the watch is that it fits Pandora charms, so I have a few Morano glass charms which I have matched to the colour of my Pandora bracelet. This is perfect for me as my Pandora bracelet is full, but family can still buy me charms for special occasions which can fit to the watch. For anyone who wants to wear this watch but not have to buy expensive Pandora charms, it fits most beads and they seem to be popping up all over the place for a few pounds each.
There are several different watches available in this range with different coloured faces or starter beads on it (some are quite full of beads), and with the option to add and remove beads, you can make it unique and individual to you, meaning you will be unlikely to find someone else with exactly the same watch on!
I have had many comments by friends and even people who I don't know in shops, etc, about how unusual and pretty the watch is. It is very girly and its slim design is particularly appealing to me as I prefer feminine watches to slightly bigger ones which look enormous on my tiny wrist!
The one thing I will say about the watch is it can be quite fiddly to put on, but to be honest I find this with most watches. It is easy to clean and I actually use my Pandora cleaning set for this, which I use to simply rub over the beads and bracelet every now and then (I've only had to do this twice since Christmas and it still looks like new). The watch isn't heavy and is comfortable to wear.
The watch is widely available from high street (Goldsmith and H Samuels) and independent jewellers. The price varies but it can be picked up for around £85 - £100. It comes in a lovely presentation box so is perfect for a gift.
I would definitely recommend this watch as a gift or a present to yourself! It looks lovely, is easy to clean and can be adapted to your individual tastes.
