This is another one of the many, many Breo watches that I have. Can you tell that I work somewhere that I can get them cheap? It is a good job that I do, that is for sure. Or maybe it isn't that good a thing actually. Anyway, I have this Breo Loop watch in pink. I quite like it actually because it has a bit of something to it, unlike the Roam collection that are more like rubber bracelets than actual watches.
The watch, as is the case with all Breo watches, is made with a rubber strap which I was worried about before owning any of them, thinking it might give me a sweaty wrist. I am however pleased to report that i was completely wrong and they are actually very comfortable and cooling on the wrist, which is nice.
One of the reasons that I picked this particular range is that I have very small wrists and so a big faced watch looks really silly on it. This one has a face smaller than four centimetres and so it sits really nicely on my watch. It has a buckle as well which helps with the fit - it is easy to adjust and there are plenty of holes to make it fit all sizes.
I really like that the pink colour runs all the way through it and it is a really nice colour as well - great for summer.
I paid about £15 for my watch if I remember correctly and, although it is not now widely available, you can get it on ebay for a little bit less than that, which I would say is pretty good value for money. Recommended.
So I have added to my watch collection once again and opted for another Breo watch but this time from the Loop collection. It was a hard choice believe me as there are so many colours and styles to choose from but I thought I'd stick with the traditional round face, althought this is the only traditional part about anything I do or wear as I do like to be unique.
I previously had a good experience with the watchshop.com when ordering my last Breo watch so decided to stick to this website to order the new one. I still haven't got enough money for a collection of fancy Ice Watches as I have a wedding and honeymoon to pay for by June so I wanted something funky, robust and cheap! (But to not skimp on quality). I saw the Loop range which is numbered according to colour, and what a fab price £12.75 in the sale with free delivery! This was definitely within budget and I was happy with what I had found.
This watch comes in 7 different colours - purple, white, blue, green, yellow and two types of pink. This is ideal if you want the watch to match all of your outfits.
The watch took three days to arrive and was protectively packaged and the watch and box were intact inside. The watch comes with a Breo official presentation box, 1 year breo guarantee and instruction manual should you require it. The box came with a white cube shaped presentation box but each season has a different box which means the collection grows with boxes and watches. The watch also comes with a 30 day watchshop.com guarantee which provides peace of mind as distance purchases are sometimes unreliable as you cannot see before you buy.
I tried the watch on and as usual I have to wear it on the tightest but my wrist is 5.5", maybe these watches would be suitable for some children as well. The watch has a large face size which is 40mm and this looks a little big on my wrist but I like wearing the watch with t shirts; it can be a little annoying with a coat or cardigan as the large face gets caught on my sleeves. The depth is 12mm which is a medium thickness and again makes the watch chunky, a statement piece and not something you can hide easily, not that I want to hide it.
The face of the watch is pink with a rubbery/silicone matching strap set with a metal strap buckle clasp fastening. The face has a yellow dot on the 12 space and Breo written at the number three point with no other numbers or points on the face. The hour hand is yellow and the seconds and minutes hands are both grey which go well with the pink watch. The face is easy to read due to its big size but if you prefer to see numbers it is not for you.
The rubber straps are nice and thick and have not stretched through wear yet at all. The pink is remaining bright and no sides of any fade.
The watch is comfortable but the bezel sticks in my wrist when I lean on my hand so I have to remember not to lean when wearing the watch as it hurts my wrist.
The watch has a Japanese quartz movement and comes with a battery, I haven't had the watch long enough to comment upon the battery life.
