We all know that if you buy a Dolce and Gabbana, you expect to get designer quality from a revered fashion house and this watch does not dissapoint. I got this watch as a present from the bride and groom for being my brothers best man and although im not really into designer fashion goods but I obviously accepted this one, because, well I didnt pay for it.
This DW0486 Genteel Chronograph is a claissical looking mens watch from D&G. Its face is a jet balck with chronograph sub-dials and silver time indices with a surrounding stainless steel case and a tough durable leather strap.
Dolce & Gabbana watches often bring a maligned contemporary twist to classically designed watches so that if your like me and you want to have a leather strap watch to get that classic style without having something on your wrist that makes you look like your ready for your pension, then this Dolce & Gabbana watch does that. This watch is from D&G`s Time range.
This watch has a classic analogue face display with the glossy look leather balck strap. It has a three hand movement showing hours, minutes and seconds. The face or dial includes a date window and a sub dial chronograph as you might see with the more technical looking , more modern watches (and this is what makes this watch so nice looking. It has that classical look and yet has modern day functionality, although I probably wouldnt take it scuba diving with me or anything like that !)
The leather strap is made of high quality black croco leather, yes leather from a crocodile, tough stuff and the watch itself has a high quality quartz movement and is water resistant for up to 50 metres, but again I wouldnt trust taking under water.
The cost of the watch is around £150 pretty solidly around different retailers on the net.
Case Width: 42mm
Case Depth: 13mm
Wrist clasp type is standard leather strap buckle (no messing around with the elaborate locking mechanisms that you get with the more modern metal watch straps. But after some time it is far to say that these buckle straps tend o degrade and can break if no looked after properly)
Case Material: Stainless Steel
You get this watch in a fairly substantial presentation box, a bit too big and elaborate as you would expect from a fashion house like D&G would give you to make the amount of money you have spent seem a bit more , well worth whil, rather then getting just a fairly thin watch, but you also do get a 2 year guarantee, so that you can send it back to the manufacturer should it break.
Dolce & Gabbana DW0486 Mens Watch
I always love to read where people spend there earnings on from Dooyoo. In the period of November and December I spend most of my money on Christmas presents but since Christmas is already more then a month ago I thought it was time to treat myself a little bit. I bought this Dolce & Gabbana DW0486 Mens Watch from Amazon for around 150 pounds. And no I didn't make that much on Dooyoo in a month, not even half, but every little helps.
What really appealed to me with this watch was the classic look but also it was a very expensive stylish look. On the picture it looked like it was shining a bit and in real I can tell it does a little bit, in the light of course. The watch comes with a black leather strap which feels comfortable while wearing it but feels very secure. I was a bit worried that this watch was going to be heavy to wear and especially since I work a lot behind the computer it can feel uncomfortable. I don't really have this problem with this watch since it might not be the lightest watch but it's not heavy either.
I think the watch is beautiful and the front is very strong but again casual. It really stands out for me as a solid, stylish but also quality watch. I love the front of the watch and it's stainless steel silver-tone which really give it a stylish feeling. The clock face has a dark black background which looks really well with like the numbers in stainless steel. There are three miniature dials within the watch face which looks very cool and they really give the watch something extra.
The watch comes in a very stylish box and then you know were you spend the money on. In the box you will find the instruction manuals, the guarantee (2 years) and of course the watch which comes in a beautiful black leather pouch.
The watch isn't the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive watch you can get and I think you get really worth your money. The watch can be worn to work since I do think it's classic, but again also when you go out for dinner since it's also very stylish. I really love the combination and that makes it a perfect watch for me. It's comfortable to wear. Great watch!
I received this as a Christmas present from my wife for my birthday. She asked a friend of mine for advice and he pointed her in the direction of Amazon.co.uk where she found this watch and knew I'd fall in love with it. She was right...
As you might have come to expect from Dolche and Gabbana this watch is very well made with a strong leather strap connecting either side of the base. This watch doesn't just tell the time though. It actually has a few gadgets, like something out of a James Bond movie. It has a compass, which I'm not sure will come in handy for me but will probably be an amazing addition for anyone who goes backpacking. There is also a built in thermometer which is more depressing than anything else (what with me living in the freezing UK).
I've been asked by a few people at work where I got the watch from and this makes me even more proud to own it. Its not exactly a Rolex but then I've never understood people who wear watches that cost more than a family car.
