DKNY 4500 Watch....
Member Name: MEL0611
Advantages: Looks lovely, reliable, good face for telling the time, well designed
Disadvantages: The clasp is a little fiddly to start with
I love watches. I do not have a massive jewellery collection but I do have a massive watch collection. I see a watch as a fashion accessory as much as a watch, I have even owned a couple of watches where it has been difficult to tell the time on them but they still look great! The watch that I am going to be reviewing today is my DKNY 4500 and I had it just over six months ago now. The watch is one that I spotted some time ago and I thought about it and went on about it and when I saw it reduced in a mid-season sale I was quick to buy it and here are my thoughts on the watch.
I purchased my DKNY watch from a local independent retailer, they have an excellent supply of watches and the DKNY brand is one that I have had watches from before. This watch at full price will cost you around the £89.00 mark which I think is quite a good price to pay. I was lucky enough to receive the watch at a reduced price of £75.00 so I was pleased with the discount. The watch can also be found at larger jewellers such as Bakers and F Hinds. You can also buy the watch online at places like Amazon and The Watch Shop. Unless you are lucky enough to find the watch in a sale then it will be the same no matter where you buy it from.
The watch comes in a presentation box and also comes with a detailed instruction book and a 2 year manufacturer's guarantee. The watch is made from a stainless steel metal and is a bracelet watch that has a metal clasp. The face is a rectangular shape and it has a white background which makes it very clear to read the time on the watch. On the face there is the DKNY logo in silver lettering. There is also the numbers 3 and 9 and then instead of having numbers for the 12 and 6, we have the Roman numeral letters, so XII and VI. The watch face, even though it does not have the other numbers on it, is very easy to tell the time on. It is clear and the silver hands of the watch work well against the white background.
The watch strap as I mentioned before, is a bracelet. It is quite a chunky looking and it is very comfortable to wear. There is a clasp shutter that you need to close for the watch to be secure. For the first few times in wearing this watch I found it to be quite fiddly to get the clasp opened and closed but it does give a little bit and becomes easier, I guess I just got used to it as well and became more confident with using it. Once on, the watch sits very comfortable on my wrist and it is really secure.
I love the overall look of the watch and it suits most outfits so it is perfect for casual wear but looks really smart for work as well. The watch is one that is quite timeless as well so I don't think it will really go out of fashion. Reliable and classy looking.
This is a 4 out of 5 from me
Summary: A great watch by DKNY
