Swatch Marble Time Watch
I received my Swatch Marble time watch as a gift last Christmas for my daughter who has now passed it onto me. 'Would you like this watch mum?' .... ' Hmmmm... Ok, whats wrong with it?' .... 'Nothing mum, but its ......' (at this point she's pulling a face, so I'm guessing by her facial expression that its just not cool enough for a 17year old girl - not my daughter, anyway!) Personally I think its far better for a 17year old girl than a 36 year old mum, but hey-ho, each to their own. We all like different things!
This watch isn't exactly 'me', but I do like it's simple design and light feeling whilst wearing it. Marble soft rose in colour, the pink rubber strap covered in white little squares and random pink circles, has a silver 'Swatch' logo.
I would describe this watch as suitable for every day use. The face of the watch analogue in design is shiny silver in colour. With digit format numbers ( pink in colour) and white hands for minutes and hours, the clock face although small, is easy to read. The clock uses quartz movement so a battery is needed. I have had this watch a year so far and not had to replace the battery yet. It's still been running whilst not being worn, so I would consider it very reliable.
**Splash proof not Water proof**
My daughter has already informed me that her friend with the same watch went swimming with it on and it no longer works, so I think its worth baring that in mind if you want it to last! I've worn mine for washing up, although have made sure its not been submerged and I'll wear it for washing. I won't wear it in the shower or bath though. My watch has had the odd splash and been fine with a quick wipe.
**No adverse reaction for sensitive skin**
Having sensitive skin is always a pain when it comes to watches. This watch hasn't caused a problem at all and I've had to redness or soreness whilst wearing it. The buckle is comfortable and doesn't dig into the skin either, which is something that usually bugs me about watches.
**Complete with box - Makes for a Lovely Gift!**
Complete with presentation box, this watch makes for a great gift. I would say its more ideal for a young teenage girl, or a young lady that likes her pink things! It's listed as a ladies watch, but I still feel its more apt for a younger teenager. It's design is a little too ' girly' for me, and if it wasn't so comfy, I'd probably not even wear it full stop.
Overall - At an asking price of £50-£60, I don't think I would splash out on this watch as a gift. I believe I've seen nicer watches for that price and cheaper, however it would still make for a lovely gift for the right person!
Summary: A reliable little watch, but not exactly my thang
