The DKNY NY4519 is the most recent addition to my ever-expanding watch collection. The reason for my slight obsession with DKNY watches is that they seem to provide exactly what I'm after in a watch - great looks, comfort, reliability, a good make, and at a not too horrifying price tag! This one, yet again, didn't disappoint...
This stunning watch is just as aesthetically pleasing and elegant looking as other DKNY watch products, with perhaps just a tad less formality to it. Personally, I would class it as more of a lovely every-day watch rather than an evening-out watch. I think this is probably due to the large, round watch face which suggests a more casual feel to it than many of their other brands. This, however, does not deflect from its fabulous appearance.
The face of the watch is set against a lovely, shimmering mother-of-pearl background, displaying 3 hands - an hour, minute and second hand. A bonus to this is the fact that the second hand can't be heard to tick, which is not only annoying but, I think, sounds a bit tacky too! The numbers are replaced by pretty symbols; the 12, 3, 6 and 9 are replaced by 4 polished batons and the numbers in-between are represented by tiny cubic zirconias. This doesn't affect the ability to accurately tell the time in the slightest (unless, of course, you're not proficient at this in the first place)! The fact that the face is quite large makes it easy to see the time at a quick glance. The strap is made up of stainless steel links, held together by a clasp which is easily fastened and unfastened. The strap is 16mm wide, which makes it slim enough to remain feminine looking, yet not so dainty that it looks fragile.
As in the case of many costume watches, there aren't a huge array of functions available, but the addition of anything else would spoil the appearance. There is a small silver dial on the side which is used for adjusting the time, but this is the only evidence that the watch has a function rather than just a pretty piece of jewellery. It is actually waterproof up to a depth of 50 metres, though personally I prefer not to submerge it in water if possible!
Money-wise, this cost me about £100, from a High street jeweller's, though I have since seen it cheaper at online watch stores. The watch came complete with battery, presentation box, cleaning cloth, information booklet and a 2 year manufacturer's warranty.
All in all this is an attractive, everyday watch which is reliable, comfortable and accurate for telling the time. Highly recommended.
