Sekonda Party Time
Advantages: Pretty dial, comfy strap, durable & reliable
Disadvantages: None for me
I'm usually one for chunky watches that aren't particularly girly, but I came across this and thought it had just enough sparkle to make it pretty whilst retaining a chunkier style. So far, I've been really pleased with its durability and how it looks, despite not being so sure when I ordered it!
Sekonda are well known for their watches and so I felt confident I was getting something high quality and reliable from such an expert brand. They've been going since 1966 and I believe they've been the 'bestselling' watch brand for the last 21 years, which is quite impressive. There are so many styles and colours to choose from when it comes to watches, and it really does depend on your own taste and what occasions you want to wear it, but the Party Time watch appealed to me because it was a little different to my norm.
The is described as a 'Summer time Moonlight' fashion watch, and features an eye catching dial. Colours vary depending on the colour of the watch you've bought, so this review is primarily for the black one. This has roman numeral numbers for the time, obviously the minute/hour/second hands, and black background and a coloured stone set around the dial face. As expected, this has quartz movement, so you can rest assured the time-keeping is precise and reliable (at least, you should be able to and thus far I haven't been let down!). The strap is black silicone and fastens with the push-through metal clasp, like most other strap watches. The measurements are as follow: Diameter 35mm, thickness 4mm, weight 50g.
As for the looks, this watch is an eye-catcher, with the set stones being sparkly and pretty. The black strap offsets this and keeps it practical and sturdy, yet still feminine because of the dial face. I wasn't sure about a silicone strap at first, but I've actually found it to be really comfy and it adjusts well to my wrist, which is quite small, without slipping or digging in. The dial face itself isn't too big in the sense that it doesn't feel huge on my wrist or get in the way when wearing something with long sleeves, but it's just big enough to make reading the time clear and easy.
This comes in a presentation box which looks very neat and gives the image of good quality. In addition, for peace of mind, it has a 2 year guarantee, which is always a bonus.
So far, I've not had any problems with this and there are no downsides for me. It may be worth finding this to try on in a store first if you prefer smaller watch faces, but I've found this to be a decent size and I've come to love wearing this watch for the way it looks.
RRP £29.99, selling on Amazon for £23.99
Summary: An eye-catching watch with a good balance of looks & reliability
