I love my watch. Thank you.

I received a very beautiful, surprise gift from Mr C yesterday. I am now the extremely proud owner of this stone-coloured ’100 Series’ watch by Uniform Wares. To say I’m chuffed to bits is an understatement.

I have really struggled to find my perfect watch. I wanted something classic yet contemporary but most of all, I wanted it to be simple. Mr C has come up trumps! He even purchased an additional leather strap in a gorgeous granite grey, should I fancy a change in the future.

Uniform Wares describe the ’100 Series’ thus: “Its uncluttered, straightforward design is inspired by the simplicity and utilitarian functionality of mid-century factory wall clocks made by British manufacturers such as Smiths Sectric and Gent of Leicester.”

This is well and truly my perfect watch – if I could have drawn a picture of how my dream watch would look, this is it. I was even blown away by the simple, stylish packaging. A lovey piece of design.
