After my last two watches broke and stopped working unexpectedly I wanted to invest in a watch that would go the distance. After reading reviews and seeking advice I exchanged my money for this little fancy number and so far it's still working and I'm very happy!
The watch is of a silver colour, and the strap is your typical link design. I found that it was a little bit bigger than my wrist and I needed it adjusting but I took it into a jeweller and they were able to change it without a problem. The clasp is a little tricky but it's one that needs to overlap itself and be pushed down before it fastens. Once it's there though it sticks fairly well unlike some others where it can come undone easily.
The face is easy to read. In the past I've always gone for watches that have the numbers clearly shown on the watch face but I thought I'd go for something different as this watch appeared to be more of an adult design than the previous ones I've worn. It took a little getting use to as if light is reflecting onto the watch face you sometimes have to tilt it to see where the hands are and what numbers they're overlaying as they're all different shades of silver.
The battery is easy to replace as well, it takes standard battery watches which can be bought fairly cheaply if you shop around. I haven't had to change the battery yet but it seems that you just pop the back off and can easily take out and replace the battery as you would with any other standard watch. The only fiddly thing I can imagine encountering is that the strap will obviously get in the way as it's attached and as it's not a buckle strap there's no way to part it from itself like you would with a buckle strap.
The time can be easily changed by using the little turning wheel that's on the side of the watch face. It works like most standard watches, you pull it out and twist!
I found the price fairly reasonable for such a stylish watch. I only paid around £21 for it from Amazon and with the name Sekonda attached to it I thought that was a good deal for what I guess is considered a 'designer' watch even though it doesn't automatically look like a designer watch.
As mentioned I found this watch on Amazon so I didn't have a problem with availability and I think there were a few still left on there if you do a search for it. I imagine jewellers and some catalog shops might have this in stock or something similar but ordering with Amazon wasn't a problem and the delivery was pretty quick as well.
Overall this is a snazzy little watch for a lady and goes well with most outfits and will work for most occasions so you can't really go wrong!
4/5 dooyoo stars - one lost because I had to get the strap size changed.
Summary: You'll never be late again!
