Disadvantages: very expensive
I have always been a real watch fanatic and in total i probably have about 20, ranging from fun character watches (like Elmo - yes i am 30 and have an Elmo watch!!) to a Casio Baby G watch. But, my favourite one of all has to be my D & G watch which i was so lucky to receive as a birthday present by my ex partner.
The watch comes in an official D & G presentation box which is made of strong plastic with a silver base for the watch to be stood on. The outer box is an eye catching silver with D & G Time in large black letters. Both are such lovely boxes that I haven't been able to bring myself to part with them, especially the silver one!
Upon opening the box I was totally taken aback by the beauty of this watch, I really don't think the picture can do it any justice whatsoever. However, the watch I received is a black version of the one you see in the picture, and rather than the features being gold, they are silver - and in my opinion being black and silver makes it much more stunning! The strap is black leather with a light brown reverse and has D & G inprinted which shows it is official, and fastens with a standard clasp fastening. The face of the watch is quite large, and maybe not all ladies would be comfortable with the size but personally i think it is a great size as i prefer larger watches. The black dial is really stylish and with the diamante stones all the way round makes it look really elegant. The hour markers are attractive in silver and the hands are very slender and there is a small date function at the bottom of the dial.
Also in the box came an official D & G guarantee along with an instruction manual, which I did have to consult several times as the date function baffled me a little.

Along with the watch came an official D&G Time t-shirt which i have never worn, but it is a lovely white t-shirt and also feels like excellent quality.
I cannot describe how much I love this watch, so much so that I only really wear it for special occasions because I am so afraid of either breaking the watch or having the strap become worn. I feel extremely lucky to have received this watch as the D & G brand isn't cheap and discovering the cost of this left me totally shocked! The price of this watch is £160.00, which is an awful lot of money, but the quality and elegance of the watch in my opinion make it totally worth it.
Summary: a stunning watch
