**What is it?**
The Lacoste 2020028 is a unisex watch (and with this one I really can see it being unisex, some of them are far more masculine or feminine but this is much more truly unisex) which is styled for both fashion and practicality.
**Price and Availability**
My Lacoste 2020028 was bought at an online dedicated watch store for £55 in the sale, which is the cheapest I have ever seen it. The price ranges depending on where you buy it between £55 - £70 and you can buy it in department stores such as House of Frasier, Selfridges and John Lewis and online. The range comes in so many different numbered styles that you may be better off checking that the one you want is in stock before you go to the store, if you plan to buy on the high street. With an online purchase you can usually expect to pay a delivery charge of around £4 recorded.
The Lacoste 2020028 is styled in a silicon (but it feels rubbery) white strap and bezel, with a silver buckle clasp. The face is styled in thin navy blue and white stripes and there are no numbers on the face of the watch. The watch has a silver minute, hour and second hand and has a red Lacoste alligator logo to the top (where the 12 would be) and a LACOSTE also in red where the 6 would be.
Overall it looks really trendy, a bit nautical, and looks great with jeans, or even sports wear. It's a casual and slightly sporty watch but it goes with so many outfits. The rubber strap has a real retro effect and it's a head turner, I've had a lot of comments on mine.
Well, the watch is comfortable, easy to keep clean and fits my thin (ladies!) wrist well, but can be worn by my much chunkier wristed husband. It keeps time very well and takes a standard watch battery which can be changed in a matter of minutes in any high street watch shop. It's durable and built to last as well as being splash proof.
For me the only downside is that due to the stripes on the face and the lack of numbers on the face (and possibly also due to the fact that it has silver hands) means that you can't tell the time very quickly on it if you see what I mean - you have to really look at it to determine the time! That said it's a minor downside but if you have poor eyesight or maybe for an older person this might not be the right watch as there are other watches out there (and indeed watches in the range) that are a lot clearer to understand.
As a fashion watch I do recommend the Lacoste 2020028, it's a bit pricier than non branded rubber watches so if you're not bothered about the Lacoste branding then by all means spend £10 - £20 on a fashion watch and I doubt it would tell the time any worse or be any less comfortable, but as a watch in the Lacoste range I do think it's not overpriced and it looks good. I would recommend it, but again you need to bear in mind it's not the easiest of watches to tell the time on quickly. For that reason I'll give it 4 stars out of 5, it would be a 3 due to this but it really is a nice watch and I can see it lasting me so I'll be generous :)
