The bestselling watch brand for a reason
Member Name: timetoshine
Advantages: High quality, affordable
Disadvantages: Higher priced items may not be as marketable, no direct purchase option online
Sekonda watches is the bestselling UK brand and it has sustained this position for a long time, in my view, based on the quality, range and stylishness of their products. I give it a four star rating because of these reasons. However, it is not perfect because if you were paying the price of their higher-end models, you might want a more luxurious brand. My experiences with Sekonda watches have invariably been positive and it has tended to be the name I go for.
The quality of the watches is outstanding since they are durable and work out as excellent value for money. My current watch illustrates this perfectly as it is the Sekonda 3779 Mens Champagne Dial Brown Leather Strap Watch. It was an 18th birthday present from a friend, which shows just how popular the brand is. It has never let me down and is very stylish indeed with a ruby leather strap and a simple, elegant, glossy champagne face. However, one of the best aspects of Sekonda is that its prices are very reasonable for the watch that you get. This particular one costs around £28 and is well worth that in my opinion. Indeed, shortly after beginning to wear it, I took it off and placed it on a kitchen table whilst washing up and people commented that I probably should not be leaving such an expensive watch around. That is something I like about most Sekonda watches, since expensive watches are just a fashion statement, it is nice to have a comment like that. It shows that you are really getting good value for money.
However, the actual price range varies as you would expect. They do whole ranges for men, women and children as well as some special fashion lines. In most of their ranges, the styles vary massively so you are likely to find something you like. It is important that Sekonda do follow some trends though, which keep the brand relevant. For example, they have followed the trend for colour watches in their kaleidoscopic 'Partytime' range. This would appeal to the youth market in particular and it is an added bonus that these are not the low quality colour watches that you sometimes see people wearing and which I have bought and broken in minutes. Though it is not obviously aimed at me, I think their SEKSY range for women is impressive with some style innovations and great affordable designs. It has been market on television advertisments in the same way that an up-market fashion or perfume might be presented. Though I am not as much of a fan of their Xpose range, because of their fabric straps, but that is more of a personal taste and they would be useful for sport and outdoor use.
In terms of where you can buy Sekonda watches, they are usually stocked at most jewelers that stock watch ranges. They usually have a large section in catalogues in stores like Argos and can be found in many places on the high street because of their profile. Their website is also a fantastic place to browse their selection. It is extremely easy to navigate with sections for each range. The pictures are perfect quality and are large enough to get a good idea of the product. It would be useful if you could buy online directly from the company but they make you use their store locator to find your nearest outlet. Nonetheless, an outstanding brand of watches.
