Pretty but functional
on 15 July 2013
I like this watch. Ish. It has a nice large face, clear hands and a gorgeous sunray dial.
But I'm docking a star or two because I could love it just a little bit more. The date box is teeny-tiny - smaller, in fact, that the one on my old watch which itself had a smaller face than this does. What's the point of a date that noone can see?
Also, the strap in the picture looks shiny, which sets the rose gold-plating off beautifully; in reality, the metal has a matt, brushed finish which makes the gold plating look gaudy.
In fact, altho I didn't spend a lot of money on it, I'm seriously considering sending it back. It just doesn't look as nice as the picture. So it all comes down to whether it's worth the faff of returning it. I probably will.
