swatch watch

I have only ever owned 2 watches in my life, a Pokemon one when I was 6 and an impressive but clunky rose gold one when I turned 21. I like the idea of a watch, my wrist feels and looks bare without one but the moment the occasion has ended and I’m back home in my comfort zone, I feel as eager to take it off as I am about swapping my stilettos for slippers.

Prior to purchasing a watch I would advise you to consider it’s weight very carefully because even the most ostentatious timepiece can feel like an iron shackle by the end of the night.

I needed a lightweight watch for my travels, one I could hike in, style outfits with and also wear in hot sticky unbearable heat, so I picked up one from the new SKIN range by Swatch. The overall depth of the face is impressively thinner than the button battery embedded inside. If you have one then you probably found yourself running your fingers along the strap unboxing it for the first time as the strap has a surprisingly distinct luxurious silk touch.

What’s more is how easy it is to forget that you’re even wearing a watch. It’s sporty and light airy feel make it a watch I can travel with in sticky sweltering heat and will not interrupt with my daily movement.

It is so important to choose a watch that fits with your lifestyle so I would advise you to shop with your daily habits in mind. Fortunately this misty rose beauty ticks all of my boxes.
