I'm actually at uni trying to do my assignment now but since my laptop is on low battery I don't really have the will to do it. Plus, it's too hard to start. I'll try again tonight when I get home.. or maybe tomorrow. I'm almost always watch hunting anyway, even when I'm in class I'm probably on some website hunting cool watches (... that I can afford LOL).
I have some watches from ODM which are basically the same watch in a few different colours just to match or clash with what I'm wearing on the day. I think they have really innovative watches especially with the futuristic or retro designs accompanied by bright and bold colours. But I know a part of me has moved on from these watches (they look like jelly watches and are good for teens). Mens watches are so stylishly crafted and timeless.
In recent years, FOSSIL group watches have become very strong in their designs, some associated brands like DIESEL and Marc by Marc Jacobs are extremely popular with the younger market due to their more outspoken nature and more interesting, non-traditional designs. I also like big chunky watches. They are full of personality and I think that's the thing about accessories - each piece has its own personality and choosing the right one will reflect yours. Watches that look very mechanical and NOT modest are my favourite. I love their boastful nature and they grab so much attention. I have had countless comments about my DIESEL watch and I kind of wish that I got the even bigger one, actually maybe not, the other one is as big as my head. I have the silver DIESEL Only The Brave watch (from 2012, the one on Coco Rocha) - I never knew they had it in rose gold, I always wanted a rose gold watch.
Last year I was online shopping and a Marc by Marc Jacobs watch was on sale and I really wanted it but I missed out and I couldn't find it again. I have no idea even on the model number and I never see it in stores. Maybe I have seen it again but it didn't look as amazing as it did then so I never recognise it and never proceeded to buy it. Anyway I ended up getting the Sloane watch in black. I wish the face was bigger.
Last month, for my birthday, Ms Sennnaa got me a watch from Guess. When I first got it I really liked it cos it looked more interesting than other chronograph watches but the more I wore it the more I liked it. It's the main watch I wear now. I think the DIESEL is sometimes too big and it's good to choose something more modest for everyday wear and it also doesn't get in the way. I think we can grow attached to watches. I never leave home without one (well mostly anyway).
