My Obsession With Watches

watch

I never used to really be a watch person a couple of years ago. I would get irritated by anything tight around my wrist as it feels restricting, however when I realised that I could wear watches loose like my bangles and bracelets, I became addicted.

Since last year I have probably acquired 5 watches and I love them so much! I have a rose gold Marc by Marc Jacobs one, a Daniel Wellington one, two ASOS watches; one with a mustache and one with a rainbow strap, and I recently got a neon pink Marc by Marc Jacobs watch for my anniversary on the weekend.

I’ve always loved the idea of having a designer watch though, ever since I saw an advert in Vogue magazine maybe two years ago of a beautiful Omega watch on Cindy Crawford, I was besotted. It was stunning, but obviously I can’t afford an Omega watch. My boyfriend has always loved them as well and plans to get one in the future.

I was happy to collaborate with Watches of Switzerland on this post purely because they offer pre-owned and vintage designer watches in pristine condition, so you can get them much cheaper. I love the idea of this as it makes things so much easier for those of us who can’t afford the retail value and of course still want an authentic watch! How many of you are slightly watch addicted?
