“ Brand: Swatch / Watch for: Women „
Swatch Fancy Me YLS430 is a very functional and stylish watch which was launched in 2007 and is part of their very successful irony range, it is not my favourite Swatch in my collection, mainly because it lacks a real wow factor that some of the other designs have, this is a more subtle design that is still a nice watch but not one that really stands out. It is usually priced around the £50 mark.
It has a very simple plastic strap that is silver in colour with a standard buckle attachment to secure it on your wrist. However where the strap is attached to the watch dial there are small groupings of crystals, twelve in total on each end and they are grouped together in a six and two three's to form a sort of T shape.
The watch has a metal casing with a silver watch face, the minute and hour hands are silver and white and the second hand is silver. The numbers are in a black script and get bigger at the 12, 3, and 9 points while there is no six but here you have a small white date display, also around the outside of the casing are crystals, there are fourteen in all, one positioned at the top and bottom of the dial and then six grouped together on either side of the watch face.
The overall effect is an attractive watch that looks nice on your wrist and is also quite hard wearing as well and easy to clean with the plastic strap. While it is not a watch aI wear a lot of the time it is nice for a change every so often.
I recently received this watch for my birthday from friends. It is definitely one of the best presents I received.
It's very practical, with a plasticky strap which is white and allows you to wipe any dirt or muck off. It is also waterproof up to 30 metres. The clock face has numbers on, which makes it quick to read (I'm always having to work out which dash stands for which number on other watches!) The hands, but unfortunately not the numbers, are glow in the dark which is also helpful when you are in an area of limited light. It also shows the date.
However it is also extremely fashionable. Everywhere I go I get a compliment about it! There are diamonds set in silver, which lines the clock face. Also, there are 'sets' of diamante at the top of the strap.
The only thing I would say is that if your wrist isn't exactly the right size, the watch tends to slip quite a bit. I don't think it would be possible to create new holes, so it's a shame.
Other than that, this is a really fantastic watch and it's suitable for every woman who wants practicality and fashion.
