Advantages: Price, style, performance
Disadvantages: Silicon can cause sweating
I never used to wear a watch, but as soon as i saw this watch i knew I wanted it. Luckily I was in the departure lounge of the airport about to go on my honeymoon and my husband felt like spoiling me. What caught my eye? The fact that it was two of my favourite things.,1) it was green! and 2) it was sparkly. That was pretty much all I needed to know.
On a more serious note, I liked how the watch looked and i knew that Sekonda were a decent brand so i figured it would preform well too. This watch is available in lots of different colours and not just the usual brights, there is a really nice burgundy one too. The diamonds around the outside provide a bit of bling without it being an evening watch. Its ideal for every day wear too. I liked how the face colour matched that of the strap so it blended together really nicely.
The strap is made from imprinted silicon so is really comfortable to wear and again gives a casual appearance to the watch. It moves with my wrist easily and so never seems to dig in or hurt. The stap measures approx 1.5cm so isn't too chunky. it has a silver buckle and there are plenty of holes on the strap so would suit a variety of wrist sizes. I have quite large wrists and wear this on the second to last hole, but the tab still fits into the restraint for a neat finish. The only downside is I do find the silicone tends to make my skin sweat a little.
Looking at the watch face it is quite elegant, the number twelve is written in numericals but the rest of the numbers are marked with a silver line. The hands are silver and there is a small sekonda logo at the top. The face isn't overly large, measuring appox 3cm. It is quite understated and I think this adds to the overall appeal of the watch.
This watch is not waterproof and to be honest even though it claims to be water resistant I wouldn't take the chance. I wouldnt like to get condensation in the face or ruin it. I would remove the watch before showering swimming or washing the dishes, but that is just me. The watch does come with a small booklet so it is advisable to read that for better instructions. Care instructions are given in there and it has a two year guarantee. This does not include loss of diamonds though, as I was offered additional insurance for these, which I declined.
Price: This watch was a really reasonable £39.99, which in my opinion is worth it as its a great looking watch.
Performance: I have been wearing this watch consistently for 8 months now with no problems, it works well, is reliable, robust, comfortable and attractive. What more do you want from a watch??
If your looking for a bright and fun time piece, I would certainly give these a look.
Summary: A fantastic fun watch.
