Wristwear with Browns Jewellers

'The most photogenic watch, like ever?'

Cluse Rose Gold Watch

Hey lovelies, hope you're having a lovely Wednesday! I've had a little breather from the blogging world lately, but I'm back with a brand new accessories post. Up until recently, I've never really been the type of girl to go out of my way to bother wearing a watch. I've always relied on the old faithful iPhone clock or generally just annoying someone and asking what the time is. But over the past few weeks I've grown to see the beauty in wearing a watch, both for styling and for practical reasons (obv). I think I owe this revelation to brands like Daniel Wellington and Cluse, because they make the prettiest, insta-worthy watches that really add the finishing touches to an outfit.

A couple of weeks back I was contacted by Browns Family Jewellers to review a watch, eek. After having a good old browse on their website I decided to go for the  Clue Rose Gold and Grey 'La Bohème' watch. Though it was such a hard decision to make as they stock some of the best brands to choose from. I don't know what it is about wearing this watch, but I've found that it makes me feel like I'm a total girl-boss who really has her shit together? Even though nine times out of ten, I probably still out of habit check my phone for the time rather than my watch. Having this pretty little number on my wrist really gives off the illusion that I've got my whole life figured out.

The Cluse 'La Bohème Watch in Rose Gold & Grey - Currently on sale at  Browns 

When I first opened the package I squealed with delight. The gold detailing along with the classic white face and suede strap is a blogger combo in heaven. It's been my faithful wrist companion ever since. Even though my style is... lets say colourful and temperamental, the watch is such a staple colour I can get away with matching it around any kind of outfit.

I love that the face is pretty big too, I think one of the reasons why I barely used to bother with watches is because I think some are just so impractical. With my crappy eyesight I need a good, readable watch that I don't have to squint at and cause myself a serious headache. The strap on the 'La Bohème' model is super soft and comfortable to wear which is the best feature. There's honestly nothing worse than trying to type and having a big bulky strap digging at your wrist, so work-wise it's a real practical winner.

Browns Family Jewellers

Browns are a brand that are really passionate about delving into the history of a good old staple watch. As you can see by this little infographic, they always trace back timepiece trends throughout the ages. Which is why the brand stock both vintage antiques to snazzy new age watches, so you have your pick of the whole bunch. From a selection of watches from brands like Cluse, Daniel Wellington and even Rolex, they stock an amazing range of jewellery too. Soooo it's definitely worth checking out their website if you're thinking about treating yourself to some new jewellery. I might be biased, but the Cluse watches are definitely a great place to start, and they're currently on sale!

Thanks for reading and thanks to Browns Jewellers for sending me my favourite new accessory.

  1. Ooh I love this watch! I agree, I love the big, simple face with soft and small strap! And you can never go wrong with a nice rose gold colour - I used to have a similar one but it broke and now my wrist feels very naked! Haha! I was the same and never really wore a watch but after having worn a lovely one, I find I need one now!
