“ Brand: LTD / Type: Watch / Gender: Unisex „
If you have been with Dooyoo for a while now you may have read some of my watch reviews - I own a large collection of timepieces totalling around the 50 mark. I do buy a lot of watches and other shopping such as footwear and clothes accessories from online sites. I bought this LTD Watch through WWW.Watchshop.com and paid the quite reasonable price of £24.50 for it. Currently on sale with a 50% reduction (£49 RRP) I don't think I have been overcharged for what is a good quality watch.
The first thing that attracted me to the watch was the colour. I were looking for a predominantly white watch to contrast with a black shirt I had bought, and the shocking pink bezel really made it stand out! On first impression you may think this is a female watch, but it draws a lot of attention due to its bright colour. The design of the strap is attractive, with its resin construction and typical link effect design it wouldn't look out of place among the top designer watches around. The clasp is well designed and gives reassurance with its sound construction. The watch is water resistant to 30 metres, although I wouldn't go deep sea diving in it just yet, as water resistance doesn't offer the same guarantee as water-proof protection.
The LTD Watch comes in a nice presentation box and is ideal for giving as a gift. The manufacturer provide a 1 year guarantee and the packaging contains an instruction manual also. The watch is easy to operate, and the simple time and date function works very well with the uncluttered finish to the design.
The watch is easy to slide onto my wrist, and once in place I can securely fasten the clasp. The watch isn't overly large on my wrist, and I think for £24.50 it is a sound investment to any accessories box. At first I did think that the plastic construction of the watch was a little bit cheap, and didn't look great, but it has grown on me and the build quality is right up there with some of the better timepieces I own. Overal I have a positive opinion of this watch, and although initial reservations regarding the plasticy feel to the watch were overcome, there is no getting away from the facts.
After seeing a number of celebrities (mainly hip hop artists) wear these watches I become growingly interested in purchasing one for myself. After searching everywhere for one I found a store in Selfridges selling them. There was just one problem what colour to have! They come in a variety of bright vibrant colours but I thought the white one and pink one would be best suited for me as it showed more of a girly side in my personality. Another reason I bought the watch as it said at the back that it is a limited edition and that it was the 129/250 have been made. I still don't know if this is still true. The salesman was extremely friendly but not persuasive for me to buy the watch. He did a great job in making sure that the watch was best suited for me and wasn't too big for me by removing the links. The customer service was fantastic and so was the watch as it is comfortable to wear.
~~~My Ltd Watch~~~
The watches are extremely light as they are made out of plastic. This is good because it isn't to heavy on your wrist and it has a smooth feel to it when it is on. The links are removable so you can adjust the size so it is best fitted for you. This can be easily done as the equipment you need to do this is provided for you. The watch comes in a black box on a small black cushion which makes it look sophisticated. As the picture shows the watch is around the face of the watch it is a bold and bright pink colour. This makes the watch stand out and makes it look more funky. The hands of the watch are also this colour pink (including the third hand). Instead of having the numbers around the outside there are circles. These are done in a metallic pink. This adds in my opinion more of a girly effect. The watch also includes the date which is handy when you need to write the date for cheques,work,emails. To make the date look bigger it as a magnifier over it. Which extremely handy for those that can't see small text. The style of the watch is to have a big face. This can be bulky but it still isn't heavy as it is only plastic. The dial that is used to reset the time and date is easy to grip unlike most watches which is another great thing. However, this modern watch can easily be scratched so keep the protector on for as long as possible to avoid the damage.
~~~About Ltd Watches~~~
Ltd watches first made a big appearance in 2009. I had mine in the early 2010. Each watch made is only made 150 times. This is great because you then know that only 149 people are going to have the same watch as you in the world. That is brilliant considering there are over 6 billion people in the world. Even though the style is unique and they are limited edition they are at an extremely affordable price at just £49.99 these watches can be found cheaper on auction sites like Ebay. The watches are resistant for up to 30 meters. This is ideal for those who like to swim in the sea or just like to soak in the bath. Some believe the watches are just for men however they are for women too. Ltd watches are great because they update their variety of watches all the time so there are always new ones available.
~~~Advantages and Disadvantages~~~
They are unique and only 150 are made of each watch which makes you a lucky person to have one and in the future you could sell it for a profitable price as it could be seen as a collectable item. They are extremely fashionable with hip hop and pop artists. If you like this kind of music then it is likely that your favourite artist wears one too. I believe when wearing a watch it should be light and comfortable to wear. This watch is extremely light and you forget that your sometimes wearing it.
The face of the watch can be easily scratched as it is fairly big. Make sure that you protect your screen and don't do anything to outrageous with it.
An excellent watch that I would recommend to anybody that wants to be fashionable. They come in many varieties and unique styles which is key when you want your watch to be a fashion accessory.
