“ Brand: DKNY / Watch for: Women „
When I moved to Milan as an Au Pair girl I looked out of place with my everyday H&M bought stuff next to my new friends that were entirely covered in Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton and DKNY. For my birthday my host family gave me an incredibly pretty bracelet from DKNY which was covered entirely in sparkly little stones and simply took my breath away. It actually took me a couple of minutes to realize that it was a watch - that just goes to show how well disguised the display is.

The stainless steel bracelet is divided into small sections which makes it very comfortable to wear the watch. It happened a couple of times that a bit of my shirt got caught in these small sections but that was only for a few seconds and was never a big problem. The stainless steel is very dark, almost like a shiny black, and silver where the letters DKNY are indicated. The last two segments with the clasp are plain stainless steel. The clasp feels very secure and I never worried that I would lose the watch. As you can see in the DooYoo picture the front of the watch is entirely covered in sparkly little stones that look expensive. With expensive I mean that they look real compared to the small silver ones that can be clued on to mobile phones and stuff. The high quality of the stones makes the watch look very high class and perfect for a big night out. As the bracelet is rather dark the watch is even suitable to be worn during the day without looking too out of place in an office or a lecture hall.
The display colours are a bit lighter than the once of the band so if you don´t know that it is a watch you are not going to see it instantly. The display is also covered with the shiny stones and two clock hands tell you the time. There are no numbers indicated and the clock hands are rather small and difficult to see it it´s dark. That is the only bit of criticism that I have, the accurate time is quite hard to read due to the stones and the dark display - not really good when you are in a hurry and want to see what time it is while running to the bus station.
I have always had the feeling that the time is measured correctly and thankfully in over 1 year I never had to replace the battery once. The watch doesn´t have any special functions like an alarm as it is more a decorative item. If you want something with more extras and functions I cannot really recommend this watch to you as it only has the basic function (although this is obviously the most important one) to tell you what time it is.
In addition to this the watch comes with a 2 year DKNY warranty and will be repaired/replaced if faulty. I never had any problems with my watch so never needed to contact customer service but with such a well-known brand I would believe that they will help you in no-time to solve your problem. In case you wondered, the watch is supposed to be water proof up to 30 meters but honestly, this is not a watch one wears at the beach or on a snorkeling trip. Still it´s nice to know that you can get caught in a rain shower without having to worry about your watch.

The DKNY watch is a real highlight of every jewelry box! It does not only look like a bracelet but is also very stylish and extraordinary - the perfect watch for people that have to wear one but don´t really want to show it.
I cannot recommend this watch highly enough and would love to buy it again - if I could afford it. With around 200 pounds this watch is a real designer peace that it too valuable and too pretty to be forgotten in a jewelry box. I´m glad that I´m lucky enough to have such a great watch and would not every want to give it away.
This is a real high class product that will replace any other watch you own and is well worth its money. So from me it is a clear 09 out of 10 possible points for the prettiest watch I have ever seen.
