“ Brand: Swatch / Watches for: Women „
This watch will always have a special place in my heart as it is the first ever present I have received from my daughter, ok she has no idea that she bought me the present but I was impressed at how thoughtful my other half was in thinking up this and also the fact that he splashed out £60 on it as well. Every year Swatch bring out a Mothers Day Special edition and this is the 2010 version.
It is part of the irony range however the nice thing about these Mothers Day editions is the fact that you do not only get a watch but also a little extra, inside the box there is a rather nice pale blue shopping bag which has slightly paler hand straps and a metal clasp, just like the watch it is a simple and attractive design and the two products obviously match.
The watch itself is a very simple rather understated design. The strap is a pale blue leather with a pattern on it, sort of like irregular shaped fish scales or the pattern on a snake, hard to describe but it is rather subtle.
The watch itself has a bright silver coloured stainless steel case to it which is quite shiny and the watch face is a pale off white colour, it has a really funky design for the numbers which is the one part of the design which really makes the watch stand out, the numbers 6 through 12 anr white swirly numbers and rather stylish while 1 through five have been replaced by small zirconia crystals and while it could have given teh watch a slightly unbalanced look it actaully works quite well.
This watch will always bring a smile to my face as it is associated with such a happy memory, like all Swatch watches it is battery powered and is an accurate time piece.
