“ Brand: Spirit / Type: Ladies Watch „
For my birthday last year I asked for this watch as I was bored of wearing character watches and wanted something more lady like for a change. The watch cost £14.99 however I got two watches from the Spirit range at Argos so they only cost £20 for the two and as the watches are all around the £15 mark this saved £10.
The watch came in a small silver cvardboard box with the word spirit written in the bottom corner, the box is simple yet sturdy and holds the watch well. Inside the box is a piece of cardboard covered in a black felt like material to hold the watch in place.
The watch is silver in colour and looks very elegant, it is a bangle style strap with one piece at the back splitting into two pieces around the front and joining to a sqauer watch face. The watch face has spirit written across it and has two slender hands to show the time along with a even more slender second hand, there are only markings for 12 and 6 on the watch face adn so other than on the hour and half past the hour you cannot be exact with the time.
The bangle is encrusted with pretty white stones which grab the light and shine nicely. The watch fastens with a fold over clasp so you have to have a little space in the fit of it so that you have room to fold over the clasp and fasten it. The watch is adjustable with a very small screwdriver you can remove pieces to alter the size but I do mean a small screwdriver my husband used one that it meant for the tiny screws in glasses to do this job for me. The watch is also splash proof which is great in my job as a carer as I am constantly washing my hands meaning there is the odd splash on my watch but this hasn't been a problem.
I really like this watch and think it is really pretty however it doesn't fit me properly, when you take a section out you are taking away about a cm and a half and I can't get a nice fit with it because of this. I like my watches to fit me perfectly and not move around on my wrist and so I only really wear this watch if I am going out somewhere nice so that it can complete my outfit. If you are happy to wear a watch that moves about on your wrist I would recommend this watch as it is pretty and a great price however if you like a watch to fit you properly this one may not be the watch for you.
