Over the last few years, chunky retro watches like this Breo Cube have really come back into fashion with the likes of JLS and the Black Eyed Peas parading them on their wrists. They're fun, and bright, simplistic watches (usually made of rubber and plastic) which are relatively inexpensive and go with a variety of outfits. They're unisex, too, which means ladies, you can 'borrow' your blokes / brothers / mates watch when you want to make a style statement!
The Breo Cube watch is available at Amazon for a reasonable £44.99. It's a pure white watch with white face with high visibility hands. It is minimal in design however it does have a date window. It has a stainless steel rather than white plastic buckle, which is a lot more hard wearing. I found it to be a good fit even on my thin wrists but it fits my husband, too, so I would say the sizing is unisex also.
The watch looks great with sports gear, jeans and t-shirt, even a tea dress - it gives any outfit a funky edge. It's great for the gym as it's waterproof, you can even use it on the beach and in the pool as it's safe up to 30 metres. It's not a watch that you need to be extra careful with - it's a great every day watch that is fresh and funky.
I love it - though I appreciate it's probably more appealing to the younger market, I can't imagine my mum wearing it! It's not one I'd wear to a wedding of course, but it's a great watch nevertheless.
The Cube watch would make a great gift as it's just that bit different (most of the coloured watches I have seen have been round) and I'm happy to wear mine as I get loads of compliments on it!

Overall I highly recommend the Breo Cube Watch in white, as it's just so cool, as well as being well made with clear and easy to read hands, a calendar date window, and with it being waterproof. A practical fashion watch.
The Breo Cube Watch comes with a one year manufacturer's warranty as standard (no matter which retailer you purchase it from). I have seen it at £55 on the high street so my recommendation would be to purchase it from Amazon or any online retailer at which you can find a decent discount on the high street high end shops.
Five out of five for this retro timepiece!
