I love watches and have quite a few as I like to wear different watches for work and going out. I bought this lovely chunky DKNY stainless steel bracelet watch from Amazon for £22. The recommended retail price is around £40 so I had a good bargain.
It is a chunky design with a thick stainless steel strap which is fastened at the back by a clasp. I do have quite small wrists so I had to have a few links taken out but this was done at a local jewellers for a few pounds. I think it does look up to date and trendy and I would say that it is suitable for all occasions and for all ages.
The face is is quite large and round and has a silver background with a chunky silver surround which has tiny diamond shapes all around. It doesn't have numbers but Roman numerals all the way round and it has the words DKNY written across the face. The face is around an inch wide so it does look quite a substantial watch whilst still being feminine which I think is due to the diamonds.
It is water resistant and it has a two year guarantee as all DKNY watches do. You change the time by turning a small knob at the side of the watch but this is easy to pull out to change, and then you just push it back in when you are ready. I have now had this watch for around ten months and I have not yet had to change the battery and I can say that it has kept perfect time and the only time I have had to alter the time is for British summer time.
This is one of my favourite watches and is one that I wear a lot. I think it is suitable for all ages, it is easy to wear and fashionable.
I like to wear my watch all the time, even in bed, its something I have always done. I think it comes from being very short sighted so if I have my watch on and wake in the night I can see the time without having to struggle to find my glasses and peer at the clock. I do take it off when I go in the shower and then I give it a good clean with a tissue before putting it back on again. The only thing is I find that after wearing a new watch for a few months or so the back of the watch starts to go funny and then it makes my skin sore at my wrist. I have tried all sorts of watches that come within our budget, OH is always buying me a new one for Christmas to take the place of the old one.
This year he bought me one of these DKNY watches. It is completely different to the kind I usually have. For a start it has a big face a bit like a man's watch but not quite so big, I usually have a smaller watch face. Second, it is a metal strap also like a man's watch. I have had metal straps before, usually they are gold plated or silver plated or something but they are usually quite dainty. This one is thicker and it has the kind of catch on it like a man's so if it comes undone it doesn't fall off your wrist.
The watch was just the right size strap for me, which was lucky as I have quite big wrists. When I first put it on it felt really bulky and it took a bit of getting used to with things like bending my wrist as the knob on the side felt like it was digging in my hand, but after wearing it for a month I don't even notice it any more. It is very comfortable to wear now. The strap is made from stainless steel so hopefully it should not affect my skin like the plated ones used to. It does make the whole watch that bit heavier but once I got used to wearing it I don't notice the extra weight.
The face of the watch is pretty, it is silver coloured and has a row of sparkly stones around the outside of it. The time is marked out in Roman numerals. The actual face of the watch seems to have a slight sheen to it which when it is in certain lights looks a bit like mother of pearl. The hands are nicely shaped with a think second hand as well going round.
I find the watch and strap easy to clean, I just wipe it over with a clean tissue every time I take it off for a shower. The watch takes a battery but I haven't had to have it changed yet and hopefully it will last me a while before I need to get it done.
You can currently buy this watch on Amazon for £81.97 which I think is a nice price for a branded watch of this quality.
