“ Brand: Calvin Klein / Watch for: Women „
This is a very striking timepiece. I have had mine for about 4 years now, it was a gift, but one that was very much wanted and lusted after!
It was priced around £180 then and that price doesn't seem to have shifted much since, although I notice John Lewis are selling a slightly newer version (with ck at the 12 mark) in black for £280, if you shop around and don't want black you can find a better price.
My cK Flash is the 'Mirror' colour. This means that the large glass face (which takes up about one third of the circumference) has a mirror effect that blends well with the high shine stainless steel bracelet that makes up the rest of the watch, except where the dial is. The Mirror colour is the same as he watch shown in the dooyoo image. You can also get the same watch in gold, black, a blue glass face with stainless steel bracelet, I'm sure a few years ago there was a more silvery colour watch too, but I can't find this online now.
The watch also comes in two sizes, 55mm & 60mm. Mine is the smaller watch, but sometimes the pure rigidity of the bangle can make my wrist sore, so unless you have tiny bird bones, I would recommend the larger size. It doesn't matter if the watch moves on your wrist as it is supposed to look like a bangle anyway!
The clasp on this watch is really secure, apparently it is called a deployment clasp, the lock is invisible from the outside of the watch, except the two little things that you squeeze in order to release the clasp. At the join of the watch 'cK Calvin Klein' is engraved, but it is subtle and can't really be seen from a distance. When you open the watch you see that the bangle is also hinged twice so that you can easily put it on.
The inside of the bangle (that sits against your skin) also screams quality and good looks, it too has a high shine finish, the watch movement is encased in steel, tiny screws would let you open the back cover if you need to, and it has the Calvin Klein logo and unique watch number engraved here too. It also states that the watch is water resistant to 30m.
From a distance it is very difficult to see where the glass and steel meet, the time on the watch can be difficult to spot as well because the face and hands are small, and in poor light I usually end up rolling my wrist around in an effort to get the flat hands to shine out at me and eventually guess at the time - I say guess because my watch has no number or markings on the dial, at least I am usually right! So you would need good eyesight to use this watch.
But who cares what the time is anyway! Look at this watch, it is a beaut! I get lots of comments and mostly people think it is a thick cuff or bangle, it does sit at around 3cms thick all the way around and the stainless steel of my watch has a huge shine factor. They are surprised and interested to hear it is actually a watch, and the designer name usually raises an eyebrow too.
I have worn the watch on a fairly regular basis for the last 4 years and there are a few scratches now on the steel, but they are only small and cannot be seen unless you are really looking! The glass has unfortunately cracked in the bottom left corner, but again this actually cannot be seen easily due to the super high shine finish of the mirrored glass, I've worn it with the crack for sometime and nobody has noticed - I don't feel the safety of the watch is compromised either.
This watch is sturdy and striking, I have no hesitation in recommending this watch to anyone who likes its styling. I think I want the gold version for Christmas!
