Pineapple Ladies Black Strap Watch
Advantages: Reliable, cheap
Disadvantages: Face is a little fussy
For best, I have a lovely Armani watch but as I work in factory offices, I sometimes worry about it getting damaged, so I asked for a cheap watch for Christmas that I could use for work purposes.
My parents got me the Pineapple ladies watch as pictured above. As I didn't purchase it myself, I have had to look the price up on the internet and it tends to retail at between £10-15 which I think is really good value for money.
The watch has a black leather type strap with buckle clasp and a round face which is mainly black with diamond like stones surrounding the face. The time is presented in analogue format rather than digital. It has a slight 'bling' look to it but it isn't over the top. Considering how cheap the watch is to purchase, it doesn't have a really cheap look to it which I like. The face is quite funky looking with the background being jet black and the hands being a silver colour and the hours are indicated by diamond style stones too.
This watch wouldn't be any good for someone learning to tell the time or someone who struggles with their eyesight as the watch has no numbers on it so could be a little hard to tell the time on for some, though for me it isn't a problem.
Although the background of the face is mainly black, it does have a swirly 'P' on it. As you have the hour stones and the hour, minute and second hands on top of this, the face does look quite fussy and contains probably a little more detail than is needed.
I have quite slight wrists so I was a little concerned that the watch would look a little too big for me as although the face isn't huge, it is larger than I would normally have but it looked quite good actually. The watch sat comfortably on my wrist and didn't make my wrist sweaty at all under the strap which is a problem I have had with leather style straps before.
I wear this watch on a daily basis and so far, the strap shows no sign of wear and tear which shows it is quite good quality for the price but if you did have any problems with it, the watch does come with a 1 year manufacturers guarantee.
I wasn't concerned about the look of the watch I received really, I just wanted it to be sturdy and strong and so far it has proven to be so. If I was to put an age range on this watch I would say it is perfect for late teens to early twenties as a decent watch. I am actually in my thirties but as said, I don't use this as my 'going out' watch, just as a cheap and cheerful work watch.
So far, I have had no reliability issues with the watch and it has ticked along nicely since Christmas without stopping. When the clocks go forward/back, it is easy to change the time via the little silver dial on the side of the face. You simply pull it out, change the time and push it back in again to re-start the watch. I wouldn't use this watch anywhere near water though as it doesn't seem to be waterproof.
Overall, for a cheap and cheerful work watch, this is absolutely fine. It isn't the kind of style I would wear to go out as I prefer something more classy and feminine than this but for a bog standard watch that doesn't need to look good and just needs to tell the time, this is fine and therefore it comes with a recommendation from me.
Summary: A good, cheap, decent watch
