BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO CREATE YOUR OWN SUNSHINE
I have been looking for a new watch to replace a retro rose gold watch I sadly lost on our road trip to the U.S. Since I have a terrible habit of losing watches I was looking for something rather inexpensive, however, it is not so easy when you are living in the world of stunning luxury watches. I happened to be strolling past a supplier of GUESS watches in a department store here in Zurich (Jelmoli Department Store) and this bedazzling, glittery watch stole my attention immediately.
My first thought was that I would have expected to see this style from the Michael Kors watch collections. It is unfortunately named ‘Article U01551’ instead of something and cute ‘spanglicious’; the 45mm round mixed metal case is a rose gold colour with a stainless steel back and the bezel is embellished with crystal accent sparkly markers. The dial is also rose gold with a glitter and glitz finish all over and the band is genuine patent leather, also of a glittered rose gold colour.
I am not usually a fan of GUESS accessories as they have a tendency to be a little too ‘blingy’ for my taste but this watch twinkles and shines and yet maintains some subtlety when its worn. This is what stole my attention and persuaded me to finally purchase the watch. I would say that it can be worn on almost any occasion (but with the right look!) and for those who are not a fan of the patent leather glittered band there is also a similar version of the watch which has a rose gold stainless steel bracelet. It is a waterproof watch but the global Swiss warranty is unfortunately only for two years. A cute, sparkly cosmetic accessory which does what it says on the box. Since they vary from country to country please check price and warranty details on the GUESS Watches website. The retail price in Switzerland was CHF 169 (equivalent of about US$ 170).
