“ Brand: DKNY / Watch for: Women „
Up until recently, I had worn the same watch for years and years. When my birthday came in October, I decided that it was time to treat myself and asked for money so I could get myself a nice, new watch. Family did well and I ended up with a budget of around £100 to purchase a new watch. I wasn't really sure what I was looking for, but knew that it had to be silver and quite delicate.
I spent a while searching for the right one, both online and in stores and ended up falling in love with most of the DKNY range - they are all very attractive watches and really reasonable. I ended up purchasing the DKNY NY3605 from H Samuel, which cost me £69. I was thrilled as I had expected a designer watch to be a lot more expensive than this.
So, the watch itself is stainless steel and the strap and outer of the face is a lovely bright, shiny silver colour. The watch face is rectangular and is a slightly lighter silver colour which has a brushed effect. DKNY is printed in silver letters on the face of the watch, but it's pretty small and doesn't detract from how pretty it is. The numbers shown on the face are 12, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10, which is pretty unusual. However, it's a godsend for me as I always struggled to see whether it was 1 or 2 'o' clock/ 4 or 5 'o' clock etc on my previous watch, but I don't have that problem with this one. The missing numbers are marked with a dash and it's SO easy to tell the time quickly and easily with this watch.
The strap is made up on links, some of which can be removed to change the sizing. This is really easy to do yourself and has made the watch a perfect fit for me. On the underside of the strap, one of the links has DKNY printed on it, which is a nice touch (this isn't one of the links that you can remove).
The watch is really nice to wear, I find it quite light and comfortable and I just love having it on my wrist. It came in a lovely box and was well packaged, it also came with a 2 year warranty which is good. I have had the watch for 4 months now and have not had any problems with it atall, I wear it everyday and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
As I mentioned, I paid £69 for this watch at H Samuel; it is currently for sale on Amazon at £55 which is a real bargain.
Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this watch as it is really attractive, good quality and well priced. I honestly never thought that I could enjoy wearing a watch so much and can't stop looking at it! I have been very, very pleasantly surprised and wouldn't hesitate to look at DKNY again when I need to purchase a watch or similar. I give this watch 5 out of 5 as I couldn't ask for anything more from it.

I got this watch as a birthday gift on my last birthday. The colour is slightly different to the picture. It's a normal silver colour rather than the whitish silver in the picture. The dail is also silver and is slightly lighter than the rest of the watch. The watch is made of stainless steel and has no seconds hand. It's easy to set the time as the crown has only one function.
I quite like the design as it is elegant and simple with nothing on the dail but DKNY and some of the numbers. The choice of numbers to display is unusual (12,2,4,6,8,10) but it gives it character. It also makes it easy to tell the time if you are like me and find it diffecult on small watches to tell the difference between 4 and 5 etc lol
The band is adjustable as two of the square pieces that make up the band can be removed easly. You can either remove one or both and the square right after those two has DKNY embossed on it. So you won't lose it whatever size you choose. The whole watch is about 18 cm without removing anything.
I noticed that it sometimes comes undone for no reason but this only happened about 3 times. I am not sure if this is a problem with the watch's fastening bit or if I just didn't press it properly. I also feel it's a little bit heavy but not too much. But if you like your watch to be light than this is not for you I guess.
I've had it for about 10 months now and it works great and didn't need any battery change. It has a couple of small scratches but nothing noticable without looking really close.
