If you are a fan of Amazon you will probably be aware that they always have loads of offers and promotions on all the time. Recently I were browsing through their extensive range of watches and decided that I just had to have a D&G watch. Whether it be by coincidence or not I am unsure, but Amazon currently have a huge sale going on with their watches. One of the sale items were this D&G Black dial with leather strap watch. I generally buy items from Amazon through Amazon themselves for peace of mind. It depends largely on the pricing, but with Amazon being so competitive on price I prefer to buy through a very well known company than one of the sellers that trade through the Amazon site. The RRP of the watch is £140 according to Amazon, but is currently on offer for £49.99. I did also recieve a discount code from Amazon for £10 off when I spend £40+ so I got my watch for just £39.99 - a real bargain! Using free postage I recieved my watch within a week (ordering on a Friday and delivered the following Wednesday). So, the service of Amazon is great, but this is a watch review, so I will give a bit more detail on the product.
The D&G watch I bought has a plain black leather strap with a simple silver buckle. The buckle has 'D&G' inscribed on it which I think is a great little touch. The face of the watch is plain black with 'D&G' and the numbers on it in silver. The hands are silver with a white inlay and the design is very simple. The bezel can be turned anti-clockwise, although I find it very difficult to turn due to not being able to hold onto it very well. The bezel does have a ridged outer edge but this doesn't offer much assistance as it is quite stiff. This bezel is silver with a back finish to it and the 'D&G' branding on it also. The case of the watch is stainless steel and overall the watch is quite a light weight. Measuring 4.5cm x 4.5cm minus the strap, this watch is reasonably well proportinioned. As it is a unisex timepiece this is the size I expected it to be as I don't like the larger watches very much.
I would say this is one of the more plain D&G watches. D&G do make some designs to stand out and show off the branding, but this particular model is a little more plain than those designs and for that reason I can only see the positive side to it. I am not one to want to shout about branding, but the D&G logo is quite clear to see and so it will still be noticed. I am going to give 4 out of 5 stars for this watch, the pricing is fantastic at the moment, and as it is one of the more basic designs from D&G it will suit more people in my opinion. This isn't a watch you would buy to be flash, but knowing yourself that you have a designer watch on is enough for me.
