Hey Guys…somebody’s excited! And yes, I know we bloggers use the word “excited” way too much but trust me, this right here is the real deal!
I got contacted by the good people over at Daniel Wellington to use one of their watches and share my experience with you guys! You can only imagine how thrilled I was when on that fateful morning, while sitting in a painfully slow bus on my way to work I received an email that read “Daniel Wellington Collaboration Proposal”. In my head, the bus became a chauffeured Porsche and the nearby passengers looking at me funny for grinning like an idiot and doing my happy dance ceased to exist. Of course in my reverie, I forgot to collect my balance from the bus conductor but it was totally worth it. Okay, I digress.
In case you still haven’t figured it out, I’m a huuuuge DW fan. Been one ever since I started following Sharon of ThisIsEss (she’s my blogger crush for a reason) and I noticed how gorgeous but incredibly simple her watches always looked. A little background info about Daniel Wellington before I get lost in a long, boring lecture about the importance of hard work and following your passion because this is kinda huge for me as a fairly newbie blogger :D.
The baby steps are finally paying off, eh? *grins*
Daniel Wellington is a Swedish brand, well known the world over for their simple, timeless and elegantly crafted watches. Their minimalistic, no-fuss designs makes their watches suitable for both sexes and all occasions; from a casual hang-out with friends to a red carpet event, a DW watch fits right in. Talk about versatility!
Daniel Wellington watches also come with replaceable straps which to me, is a fantastic idea as it enables you to easily switch your style without the consequential price tag. Style on a budget, win! Their watches generally fall within the range of $135-$250, but they always have discount codes and promos where you can get a bargain.
I was asked by their warm and courteous representative to go through their website and choose a watch of my liking and I went with the Classic Bristol (36mm) which has a dark brown strap and a rose gold case because the budget fashionista in me somehow managed to convince me to make a common sense decision as I already had a well-functioning black watch. It’s classic and beautiful, made of real leather and sits so deliciously well on my wrist. It also suits my personal style which as I mentioned in this post, is gradually gravitating towards chic and ladylike pieces. I especially liked that it’s lightweight and easy-to-wear; you almost won’t remember you’re wearing a watch.
I received the package in less than two weeks after it was sent and it came boxed in a simple and luxurious looking brown case which apart from the actual watch, also housed a user manual, a warranty card and a small tool for easily changing my watch strap.
The Classic Bristol Watch I chose costs a relatively affordable price of $199 (about 60k-70k ish in Naira at the current prevailing market rate) and in my opinion, great quality well-crafted watches are totally worth the splurge and it’s better to buy one fantastic watch than three fairly good ones that’ll fall apart in a couple of months. I always say that three things you should never stinge on are a great watch, great shoes and a classic handbag but we’ll have to postpone that discussion till much later! 🙂
The good news is; you can get a whopping 15% off your next Daniel Wellington purchase when you use the discount code “mojistyleDW” at check out.
Side note: Ever since I got this watch, I’ve been itching to take wrist-candy photos so if you’re following me on IG (which I hope you are, otherwise please click here to do so :)), you’re just gonna have to bear with me for now. 😀
