It's Christmas in a couple of months time (I know, I know, where has the Summer gone?) and as I'm away for the majority of December, it's time to start thinking Christmas presents.
As David started a new job in Leeds this year, he mentioned recently he could do with a watch. Unlike me, he doesn't work in front of a computer or with a phone in hand
counting the seconds till 5pm so this makes perfect sense. It also makes for a sentimental, 'you'll think of me whenever you look at the time' sort of gift. That's obviously what I'm going for.
Through the power of social media I came across some reviews of Daniel Wellington watches and they are stunning. My favourite thing about the styles is that they're all so simple and elegant, no pretentious detailing but makes the statement: classic.
I knew a smart, simple watch like this would be perfect for a present and Daniel Wellington super kindly sent me a watch from their collection, in exchange for mine (and David's) thoughts on it.
It arrived in the most wonderful leather packaging which was certainly gift-worthy itself, never mind opening it to see the watch inside. Even with the huge, beautiful selection of watches online it didn't take me long to pick 'the one'.
The Classic St. Mawes 40mm, with brown leather strap and silver case (he hates gold.)
The face is a mere 6mm thick which makes it an extremely lightweight, elegant accessory, so much so that I'll definitely be trying this out myself when I can prise it off of it's new owner. David's reaction was exactly as I imagined it would be, he loved it and has already had a number of comments from colleagues and friends about it.
His ego is now ridiculous, so thanks for that DW.
The statement brown strap and white face means he can wear it with anything.
The whole intention behind the Daniel Wellington brand is to create something that could be described as 'preppy'. Although it's an American term we could associate with Clueless, the trend has been long standing in the UK too. This season it's encompassing tweed jackets and aran jumpers (both of which David owns, go figure) and this is the perfect accessory to match.
