|Source: what jess does next // The Mimco watch that has been planted firmly on my wrist|
I had my eye on this watch for some months before finally added it to my collection in last years Boxing Day sales but it was not until months later that I finally took it out of the velvet box and started to wear it. For some reason when I get something new I imagine an aura of 'specialness' around it that means it's better to keep it safe and sound in the box than actually wear it. And this is more than just a watch, it's a 'timepiece' according to Mimco. How swish!
This 'Sportivo' timepiece has a large boyfriend style face with gorgeous rose gold detailing. Rose gold and boyfriend style watches have been on trend for some time now, but I find that this watch has a fresh take on it. Thankfully it doesn't have a loud tick which I love, because I seem to have supersonic hearing during the night and loud ticks stop me from falling asleep.
Something else I love about this watch is its general oversized-ness. Is that a word? Probably not, but you know what I mean. Sure, I could get a few of the extra links removed but I love the looser feel and look. And whilst it is oversized it doesn't feel or look too chunky. The smooth band and face and clear face feel fresh and streamlined, keeping it chic and still feminine. The Sportivo watch does have a bit of a 'sporty' vibe to it, from its size, to black face and the smooth link band which clocks shut. With a very satisfying click at that.
I can imagine this little beauty remaining on my wrist for some time to come. Mimco also have a smaller version of this watch and I believe they may have recently released a matte black version as well.
What do you think of boyfriend style watches? What watch is hanging on your wrist?
