Remember that time when the watch you wore on your wrist not only guided you through the day, and night, but also spoke of your personal taste, your style and personality. Sporty or classic, digital or analog, water resistant and practical or a designer watch that served as an extension of self that you never left the house without. Well, I’ve longed for that relationship with a time piece for ages, and recently have formed one with a rose gold Daniel Wellington that I was gifted.
Good news is that the anchor relationship with a wrist watch is back, and it couldn’t be better looking. Daniel Wellington has brought the world true craftsmanship and undeniable elegance, whichever your style preference. Be it a more traditional leather strap, white or black face, navy stripes, silver or gold.
About my Daniel Wellington
When given a choice from the range I opted for the Classic Petite Melrose Rose Gold watch, to match the rose gold phase that seems to have overcome me recently. Slim, refined and perfectly round, I love it’s minimalistic style and the fact that it doesn’t have too many fussy features. Just a classic contemporary look and sophisticated design, modern with a beautifully crafted lightweight mesh strap that sits comfortably on my wrist.
When I wear it, I feel like a million dollars, like anything is possible. For me, it is perfect.
The Daniel Wellington Story
It was a coincidental meeting halfway around the world that sparked the idea for Daniel Wellington. On this trip, founder Filip Tysander met an intriguing British gentleman with impeccable yet unpretentious style. The man had a particular fondness for wearing his vintage watches on old, weathered NATO straps. His name? Daniel Wellington. Inspired by his new acquaintance’s timeless style, Filip decided to create his own line of watches. Minimalistic and refined, the classic design with interchangeable straps has wide-ranging appeal. Now a few years later, this design is still an important part of what makes Daniel Wellington so special.
Opt for the British navy NATO strap popular back in the 70s, now perfected with beautiful colour combinations. Each strap is interchangeable and can be matched to what you’re wearing, the occasion and mood. The leather strap, also interchangeable and available in shades of brown and black, with a silver or rose gold plated brace. And, mine with the lightweight mesh.
Unpacking my beauty
The Golden Cuff
Included in my gift pack from Daniel Wellington, was a matching Classic Rose Gold Cuff. I’m a big bracelet girl and this classic and minimalist design works perfectly. It’s casual and tasteful and distinctly Daniel Wellington, working with and without the gorgeous watch. Actually, it’s the kind of bracelet that I’m likely to put on, and not take off for a few years. As is my way.
