I’m a sucker for a nice watch. I will never be one of those people who feels that watches have been replaced by smartphones. Since my Dad gifted me with my first watch at the tender age of six – a red and pink Strawberry Shortcake watch with hands tipped in strawberries – I’ve been hooked.
Find yourself a good watch and you’ll have it for a life time. Classic, timeless watch pieces are my vice and a peek into my closet would confirm that.
When Daniel Wellington watches came on the scene, I made a mental note to buy one, but they’d become so popular that they were hard to find in my city. A couple of boutiques stocked them, and they’d sell out in a blink of an eye. When my two girlfriends Katie and Chantal turned up with them, I officially longed for one.
With their slim design and leather wrist straps, they reminded me the classy, unpretentious pieces that both my father and grandfather wear (I’m a sucker for men’s watches in particular). I loved the masculine feel and simple, clean designs of the Daniel Wellington watch faces.
For those of you looking for a more feminine feel, Daniel Wellington now offers dainty options that are smaller than their ultra popular 36mm versions. You can now opt for the Dapper Sheffield 34mm style and the highly coveted Classy Sheffield with a 26mm face…which just so happens to be the next one on my shopping list.
What’s so great about this brand in particular is the high quality and affordability. In addition, the watch straps are interchangeable and there are so many to choose from – from the colourful NATO straps to the elegant smooth and crocodile embossed leather options.
I’m so pleased with my Dapper Sheffield watch that it has become the new darling in my collection. I have yet to take it off, it looks great dressed up and dressed down, and its blue hands are so eye-catching that I receive compliments daily.
