For my birthday at the very end of last year I received an Etsy gift card. (Thank you Thelma, Eric & Sophie!) It took me a good while to decide what I wanted to purchase with it. I changed my mind a few times but eventually settled on a watch I’ve been eyeing for ages from Nottingham based Buckle and Cog.
(3 of the watches available at Buckle and Cog)
What initially drew me to their designs were the bright patterned interchangeable fabric straps and that they are definitely a beautiful distinctive gem compared to the majority of resellers that seemed to come up in my Etsy search for watches.
I ended up ordering this watch (£22) with ‘Galactic’ fabric and a white face, it arrived in a box wrapped in super cute colourful string.
The watch was well packaged and held in place utilizing perfect professional presentation, it also came with a handy card with tips on how to care for your new watch.
I love that each watch in the galactic family would look slightly different due to the pattern of the fabric. I picked this one mainly because it reminded me of the texture of watercolour paintings, and so it feels very ‘arty!’ Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous?
It's definitely a statement piece, the watch face is a little bigger than what I’m used to but I think big watch faces are ‘in’ right now.
I have had it for a couple of months and due to the fabric strap it’s extremely comfortable to wear everyday.
I’m exceptionally happy with the watch I received from Buckle and Cog, it arrived very quickly, looks cute and I now have a stylish staple for my otherwise very unstylish wardrobe! I can’t wait to purchase some extra straps in the future to update my look.
