“ Brand: DKNY / Watch for: Women „
I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful diamond encrusted DKNY watch from my boyfriend for my 21st birthday (nearly 3 years ago now!) and although it is a lovely watch and fits quite well I can't honestly say that it has been perfect. This watch cost £115 and so far hasn't been worth it!
The watch is silver with a total of 174 diamonds placed around the face of the watch and across the bridge on both sides of the strap. It is quite a delicate watch, measuring only 18mm at it's widest point (the face) and fastens with a simple clip on the strap. The strap also has an additional piece of strap that clips in to place to make it longer if required.
In the (nearly) 3 years that I have had the watch I have had no problems with the battery, in fact I'm still using the same battery that it came with!
Like previously mentioned though I do need to highlight a couple of flaws with this watch. As I have quite narrow wrists I wear the watch on it's smallest strap setting (without the additional strap parts connected) but even so I still find that the watch has a tendency to swivel round on my wrist leaving the face on the inside of my wrist and the strap on the outside. Maybe it's time to get a couple of the links in the strap removed by a jeweller?!
Another flaw, quite common in most watches so in no way specific to this watch, is that the strap scratches quite easily with the every day use of being rested against surfaces like when I'm sitting at my work desk.
The final, biggest (in my opinion), flaw though is the stones. They are not held securely and quite often appear loose with a danger of falling out. My watch has actually been back to the jewellers 3 times already since I received it with missing stones and just this week in fact another stone has fallen out so we are due our 4th trip back to get it fixed - good job my boyfriend took out the 3 year warranty!
All in all a beautiful watch but please be careful with it, it is delicate and with insecure stones there is a big possibility you will be returning to the jewellers!
