Disadvantages: The initial payment for the watch
I have a lot of watches in my collection and there are some that I prefer to wear for specific occasions. I guess I see them as a fashion accessory as opposed to anything else and so I like to match outfits for different occasions. I have some watches that are more casual and then those that are quite dressy. The one that I am going to be reviewing today is my Accurist GD1673. The watch was one that I brought a few months ago now when I was looking for a gold watch, the majority of my watches are silver and I wanted this to go with outfits that would benefit from the gold watch. Here are my thoughts on the product.
I purchased the watch from an independent retailer in my local town. I had done my research on the watch before I purchased it and had seen that it was retailing for quite a high price. The watch is one that I needed to come down in price before I had any chance of being able to buy it and as I mentioned, I brought this about six months ago with my birthday money and it cost me £225. I appreciate that this is still a large amount of money to spend on something like a watch but as it can retail up to £400 and the fact that I didn't own a gold watch I was ok with having to pay this price.
The watch came in a lovely gift box but I was soon to get it out of this and then start wearing the watch the watch came with a 2 year manufacturer's guarantee as well as a small instruction booklet. The watch itself is a 9ct gold watch with a bracelet looking strap and then quite a plain looking face. The face has the Accurist logo on the front in black lettering; the background of the face is white. There are no numbers on the watch face but in their place are 12 gold dashes so this is very easy to tell the time on, simple but very elegant looking in my opinion.
Accurist describe the watch as being a 'delicate patterned bracelet making it an elegant piece and a sophisticated piece of glamour for any outfit; which is exactly the way that I would have described the piece, it was so that it could go with certain outfits in my wardrobe. The watch strap was very comfortable to wear, I was very impressed with the design and that it looked like a neat and delicate strap as opposed to a weighty plain strap. There is a very small gold strap that allows you to fasten the watch securely onto your wrist. I was impressed as to how this felt, it was very tight to begin with to get the watch on and off but I like that and even know, it is still tight, it is just that I have got more used to taking the watch on and off.
I have been wearing this watch for six months on and off now and I am certainly impressed, with how it is reliable and efficient to how like the Accurist brand said, that it I would go well with outfits. I have had a few compliments on the watch and the gold is lovely looking as opposed to bold and brash. Even though this has a high price tag, I think I will definitely have my monies worth out of it.
An excellent watch and a 5 out of 5 from me.
