“ Brand: Limit / Watch for: Women „
I bought my current Limit watch from Argos where they stock a range of Limit watches as one of their budget brands. I already had a best watch but did not want to risk wearing this everyday so wanted a cheap everyday watch. I have now had it on its original battery for a couple of years.
I like the design of the watch as I prefer numbers to Roman numerals or dashes, and I wanted a metal bracelet rather than a strap as it is easier to use and I don't like to use leather.
The watch bracelet was adjusted by Argos for free, although I had to keep going in as they kept saying that there was nobody there at the moment who could do it. They gave me back the spare links which turned out to be very useful. Not very long after I had the watch the joins between some of the links started to stretch and looked in danger of breaking, one was only just hanging on. I certainly hadn't been rough with it and only stretched it enough to get it over my hand. Although the watch comes with a two year guarantee this doesn't include the strap or bracelet or the battery so this is of limited use. I went back to Argos and they replaced the damaged links with spare ones for free. I have a very narrow wrist so fortunately had several spare links. A year or so later there are more gaps in between the links even though I have been very careful with it, as I have no more spare links to repair it with! When the battery runs out I will have to replace the watch as if I replaced the battery I am fairly sure that it would outlast the bracelet.
Curiously a few months ago it showed the wrong time and I thought it must be losing time. I changed it to the right time, but again it seemed to get slower. Thinking the battery was running out I bought a new watch. I then had a look at this one again, changed it to the right time and ever since then it has been fine. This was very strange as I have never known this to happen to watches before, normally they just stop completely.
This watch was cheap and with a battery costing around £5 to replace it has been good value for money. However if you are after a long lasting, good quality watch then you will have to look elsewhere and spend a lot more money.
