Rotary Fob Watch
Advantages: No more haywire watching
Disadvantages: could not think of one
My darling husband decided it was high time I had a watch, as I have this nasty habit of breaking wrist watches just by wearing them on my wrist, this would prove a bit of a challenge. He was hard pressed to find a watch that I would not send haywire. I don't know why but something in my makeup just sends them into overdrive when I wear wristwatches, that and the added problem of my skin condition.
So without much delay he hit the shops and came up with this little lovely which I just pin to my bodice and wear without problem. Brilliant.
It is a Rotary watch with the usual mechanisms that most other watches have with one added bonus, I do not have to wear it on my wrist.
Obviously these are generally worn by nurses and health care workers, which is why the clock and dials are upside down when worn, but is this a problem? well no actually it is not. I found it easy to use and lovely to wear with a stylish strap and attachment bar in silver it looked the part. You can get some fancier ones if you want, but I was always a very basic is best kind of girl and Hubby lord love him knew what I would appreciate more.
The face is quite plain with normal numbers not roman numerals all around the outside of the dial there were little marks for the minutes and a second hand as well. A small button is at the side of it which is not for winding more as resetting the watch really. So once set you shouldn't need to touch it again until the clocks go forward or back.
It keeps time well and I think looks nice no matter what I wore. The chain linking was pretty and made it look a bit special.
Depending on where you go these style of watches go from a mere £15 Argos special to anything upward of £50 plus if you want a bespoke watch from a reputable jeweller.
I think Gerry paid somewhere in the middle for mine and although price does not matter here the though is most definitely what counted.
I have a skin condition which prevents wearing a normal watch and for some reason they always go mad when I place a watch close to my skin, so with this in mind he bought me this one. Thoughtful huh.
Summary: lovely little gem of a watch for me who cannot usually wear one
