Whilst on holiday in turkey I was taken to one of the gold shops and was immediately introduced to the brand Belmond.
Not exactly high end or particularly expensive.. But for that reason I loved it!
I high shine stainless steel incredibly sparkly crystal Swarovski encrusted watch which I can use as an every day run around whilst the Rolex is on clean!
This gorgeous time piece does exactly what it’s meant to.. Capture some attention, tell the time and look good!

Have you found watches off the beaten track that are not big brands but you still love?

So the other day my mother came over with a sly look on her face and a bright red l.e.d light on her wrist. I say sly because she has a small addition with buying electronics and knows I will ask for the reason for her latest purchase. I will admit I behave more like a financial guard than a daughter when it comes to her buying decisions.

After a short while of ignoring the massive red watch elephant in the middle if the room I go ahead and ask her how much it was. Choosing to ignore my normal barrage of question she presses the button and shouts “I’ve walked 3000 steps today”

Slightly intrigued with the bright red display I listen on..

“it tracks my activities, it’s waterproof (not that she swims)” I quickly interject and say it’s waterproof not heat proof you cannot wear it in the sauna.

My mother likes to purchase waterproof mp3 watches for when she’s at the gym sauna..and she has gone through about five of these quite expensive pieces of equipment and it occurred to me the other day is that they are waterproof but not heat proof to such a degree for them to survive the extreme conditions in the sauna which is why they give up hope after a meer two months..
I digress!

She happened to mention it was a polar and then my own knowledge of polar then assisted me in potentially finding out more;

I like to train at the gym with my polar watch. I’ve had two in my life time in six or seven years they have served me well. In fact I cannot workout in the gym without it as I feel I’m not able to track my workouts so it is wasted but of time!

So now I’m more open in listening.

I do some research on the watch and discover it does a fundamental thing the polar F9 doesn’t do.. Tracks every day activities to get a complete overall calorie expenditure.

“I like it already “I think in my head..
It’s sleek design and illuminating red led display which lights up when pressed.

The trophy and congratulations you get for the completion of your daily tasks.
It all seems pretty nifty.
We watch the promo ad which adds to my excitement and it retails at about £80.00 from amazon. Not bad.

To cut a long story short my polar is on it’s way! I’m not sure if I will keep it as I like having my heart rate monitored at the gym and having everything stored on the watch to tell me how hard I trained over the week but the loop is meant to connect to my iphone and keep everything in a more modern manner. It seems like a fantastic idea.
My mum loves telling us how many steps she’s taken in a day so for her she loves it.
It’s aesthetically pleasing on the eyes and mixed in with the right amount of technology it seems like a good purchase for a sport and lifestyle watch.

One of my favourite brands Christian Dior has just announced the launch of their latest expansion to their watch collection perfectly named Dior VIII Grand Bal. The luxury brand plans to release five more watches into the market consisting of a ceramic white, gold or black colour beautifully decorated and garnished with precious gems and sparkling bright colours.

The watches have a 38mm dial screen encrusted with 18 carat yellow gold hands and a 0.06 carat rose cut diamond crown alongside a sporty high tech black or white frame.

Each watch has exclusive features for example the 2nd modeel is a dazallling black watch has 60 baguette amethysts from Madagascar with a black bracelet alongside a black Atrina mother-of-pearl dial which is surrounded in 227 pink sapphires. Rather impressive!

Only details of the first three watches have been shared as of yet but we are waiting to see how amazing the final two will be- how does one choose one watch?

The new collection does look superb but having a quick look at the last collection which came out last autumn the watches are just as fabulous- there is a lot of choice so ensure you have a browse through to get the best possible watch that suits your personality and flare!
