“ Brand: Next / Type: Ladies watch „
* Prices may differ from that shown
Last Christmas I received this lovely watch as a gift from a friend. She knows my love of next so she couldn't have gone wrong with this really. The watch is surprisingly called a small crystal sports watch but personally I don't think there is anything remotely sporty about it, unless it means it in a different context but I really don't know what that could be.
Despite the watch being a relatively low price at £ 22 it comes packaged in a way that makes it look a lot more than it is. The standard watch packaging for next is lovely. It comes in a black box which is thick and fantastic quality, under the lid the watch is displayed on a little black cushion that keeps the watch firmly in place and prevents it from sliding around.
The watch itself is silver in colour, its relatively minimalistic in its design, it has a small circular watch piece and the strap looks similar to a silver chain. The watch face has small crystals going all the way around the sides, this really is the only part of the watch that stands out the rest is all very minimalistic. The watch face has the four main numbers - 12, 3, 6 and 9 in Roman numeral's and the missing numbers have been replaced with small crystals. Is a strange design but it doesn't affect the ability to get a close to accurate time.
In watch terms it is very simple; it does what it is supposed to really - tell the time. It doesn't have any other functions than that but I like it that way. I'm not sure what battery the watch needs as I have never had to change it, but it has lasted a year so far which is great.
I really love this watch, it's very simple but that's how I like it. It's easy to put on, it has a little clasp on the underside which is easy to put on and take of but it's not so easy that there is any chance of the watch accidently falling off. Also a major plus point about this watch is that you can adjust it. The links are easy to take out and put back in, I have been able to get the watch to a perfect fit so that it does not move around on my wrist. I think this watch is excellent quality, I have worn it almost every day for the past year and it's not damaged or worn in anyway. I also find this watch comfortable to wear, most of the time I forget it's even on. I would definitely recommend it, I think it's fantastic.
