Nat is going to New York at the end of the month so I’ve been racking my brains trying to come up with a shopping list for her from me! Top of the list is a new watch.
This is my current watch collection. It’s a mix of mostly vintage + fakes…I’ve learnt that even though fake may be cheaper it is actually a waste of money in the long term. No surprise there! The fakes just stop working and the vintage ones just seem to fall apart! I’ve had to glue back the buckles on 3 already, but that’s inevitable if you wear your dad’s old watch from the 90s (the brown Seiko leather strap one). So I would like to treat myself to a nice watch if I may! I’ve been watch shopping online, looking at UK sites and these are my favourites…
Olivia Burton Chonograph Detail Watch| John Lewis| £105
Swatch White Character| £44.50
Kate Spade New York ‘Metro Patchwork’| Nordstrom| £116.23
Kenneth Cole Skeleton Automatic Watch| Watch Shop| £123
Skagen Klassik Gold Face Watch| ASOS| £99
I decided I really liked the Kenneth Cole Skeleton watch and even though Kenneth Cole is from New Yoiiirk I don’t think I’ll be getting Nat to buy me a watch for the sake of a £5 saving. I still don’t know if Kenneth Cole is the one…as I’d like to have a look in some London boutiques to see if I find a similar watch but in brown leather with a more vintage feel. I’ll make sure I find it just in time for Christmas! What do you think of the watches?
