      Gorgeous watch, few niggles

      This is a really delicate watch that was bought for me around four years ago for my graduation. I am a bit of a floozy when it comes to watches and I like to have a different one for different occasions. This watch is perfect for dressing up or dressing down but as the stainless steel is susceptible to scratching I do not wear it for work and it only makes its head out of the drawer on special occasions.

      ==Price and availability==

      I was bought this as a graduation gift by my dad but I believe it retails at £99.00. Amazon are stocking it at the minute and it is for sale for £60.00.

      ==Description==

      Starting with the watch face, I would describe it as slim and delicate. The hands are short and stubby though with only a minute and hour hand. I found the clock face really hard to read at first and still now if I leave it a while between wearing it, it takes me a while to work out how to read it again. The 12,3,6,9 numbers are numbered but the other numbers as just dashes. I find it hard to read because the hands are short and as there are less numbers, it takes a while to work out which direction the hand is pointing in. Perhaps it is just me! The straps are the best part of the watch and are made from chain linked stainless steel that is light and comfortable. The straps are slim and exceptionally light. To fasten the watch there is metal clasp that clicks into place, it is very secure and is well crafted to fit in well with the aesthetics of the piece. You can alter the size of the watch easily as the fastener slides down the strap. I prefer to wear it tightly fitting.

      ==My experiences==

      The watch looks beautiful, very subtle and chic and it was a wonderful present to get for the graduation. After four years, the watch straps are looking duller but they are not scratched much and if I was to give it a good polish, it would probably buff up nicely. The reason why I fell out with the watch and I don't wear it as often as I should is because the links in the chain nip on my arm hair. Every now and then I feel the watch pull on my delicate arm hair and it makes me wince! It doesn't do it often and if I have it super tight it doesn't do it as much. The stainless steel straps are delicate and do not bend. There is a certain amount of give in the fact that they will bend around you r wrist but you should avoid pushing on the metal or forcing the strap to bend as this will warp the metal and you will end up with a kink in the strap. I have a very small kink in the chain metal strap as I have really slim wrists so find that there is a long section of unused strap that can hang loose and get in the way. Over time, this has warped but as it's underneath it does not matter too much.

      ==Overall==

      A very pretty, sophisticated watch with a few niggles but overall keeps good time and looks good.
