My watch is model number YA109525 and is a 30 metre water resistant yellow gold plated rectangle watch with a white mother of pearl dial and the water itself is powered by a Quartz movement. It is run by battery and is has a bangle shape to the design with a Gucci G-Line clasp that is just a folding hinged clasp adorned with the Gucci lettering. In all it is fair to say that this is quite a simple looking watch, it is a classic Gucci design that has been around for a number of years, possibly in excess of 10, and it is quite a staple Gucci line that I see regularly when I am browsing for new Gucci watches online or looking in jewellers windows.
The first thing that ever caught my eye about this watch was the bangle designed. I loved it for a good year or so before I was lucky enough to receive it as a gift and I love the stylishness of it too. The gold is a classic look of course, one that now matches my wedding rings, and the yellow gold plating is long lasting and durable. I love the look of the clasp as it has the two circular pieces that seem to come together and when I wore this watch for part of my wedding day my Mum commented that it looked beautiful and reminded her of the coming together of two people both wearing rings and I will always remember that comment, as I do when I'm fastening the clasp. The actually clasp is stylish, it is a long rectangular Gucci lettered clasp that looks classy and fastens with ease. It is a functional clasp too and in all the years that I have worn this I have been able to open and close it with ease but yet it has never been caught and undone so that is a huge plus point for me as it allows me to feel confident that my watch is secure. The clasp is definitely not as stiff now as it was when I purchased my watch but it hasn't loosened significantly, just enough for me to be able to open and close it using just one hand.
The mother of pearl dial on my watch is white and this has a lovely sheen and shimmer to it that catches the light beautiful and my eye is often drawn to my watch when I am moving my arm or wrist. The face on this watch is simple yet stylish and it fits wonderfully with the watch giving a different amount of colour and light to the whole watch and it is definitely an eye catching face. I love that the movement is quartz and because the dial/face on this watch is so small the battery lasts absolutely ages. My watch is never stopped and I have only just had the watch changed a couple of months ago. This was around £55.00 as this is a 1500L series model (as indicated on the back of the watch) and this is because the watch must be resealed after the battery is replaced and then a test is carried out to ensure that this watch is still water resistant. I was happy to pay this price as my watch has increased in value from £495.00 to £545.00 now and so I figured it is only 10% of the cost to still have my lovely watch working. This was the first battery change and my watch is around 3 and a half years ago, as well as the time it was ticking in the shop window of course, and the shop assistant advised me that this battery should actually last even longer as its brand new in the watch and just a few days old when I get my watch back, however I got a guarantee with my battery replacement any way for a minimum of 12 months. The 'markings' on the hand are just the Gucci lettering and swiss made down the bottom however I do not struggle to tell the time and despite the face being small I have no problems and do not need to squint at all to read the time. I have also not had any problems with the watch losing time, this has never lost time and when the battery run out the watch just completely stopped which indicates that the movement is still working perfectly after 3 and a half years.
I love the bangle design of this watch as it hugs my wrist nicely. When I used to wear this, before my weight loss, it did hug my wrist perhaps a little too tightly if it was a very warm day but it was very too small for me and I was quite heavy, overweight really, when I first started wearing this. Now I am a more normal size after losing several stone and this looks even better on me now, just showing off to me how much weight I have actually lost. The bangle design is pretty and it feels ladylike and elegant too as well as looking stylish, in my opinion.
My watch is water resistant to 30 metres however I only ever get water near this when I wash my hands and even then I am sensible. I also apply perfumed products a good thirty minutes before I put this watch on and I take care not to get hand cream on this too to make sure that I am taking care of my watch as much as possible. Of course my watch does sometimes get rain water on it if I get caught out in a shower and I've not experienced any problems with condensation on the glass or anything related to water damage.
In terms of actual wear my watch does have a used look about it. In the time I've had it I have probably worn it in excess of 500 days, likely in excess of 750 even, and because of this there are light surface scratches all over my watch. The glass does not have scratches on it and the clasp is still working fantastically too. The yellow gold plating is still in tact and there is no obvious area where this is wearing. I would expect it to be long lasting from a brand such as Gucci and I am sure that I will get many more years of wear out of this watch, hopefully anyway!
I am sure you can tell from my review that I absolutely love this watch. It is simple, stylish and elegant in design and it is a really feminine watch too. It is definitely one of my most prized watches, along with a Tag Heuer, and I wear this regularly at the moment to work and when out for nice dinners with my husband or with friends. I would definitely rate this watch 5 out of 5 stars because it is absolutely fantastic. I love everything about this watch and I have nothing but good things to say about it.
Summary: A fantastic watch from Gucci.
