hi there! i have to admit that I thought this would be the perfect gift for my 11 yo niece, but I was wrong. white is not a child-friendly color, even if it's on a strap. in the picture, it looks georgous, but in reality it looks so sirty and old after a couple of weeks that I regret having bought it from minute one. my niece's case is even worse, as she's used to wearing watches on her right wrist and as she's right handed, everytime she writes some of the fresh ink goes to her watch strap. shame on the white watch!!!
