Granted that nowadays we simply need to glance at our phones to check the time. But, still there is no denying the elegance and refinement that a proper wristwatch brings. However, not all of the best watches for women need to come with a hefty price. Some watches rely on their good old functionality and design to be in demand or desirable.
Having a fulltime job and being a mum of three busy children, I have tried various different watches and failed to find one that I found comfortable enough to wear around the house and to work. They have been either too big and bashed against anything and everything and consequently, the face scratched quickly, or it died at the first sight of water, never to be revived again!
I was very sceptical that this dainty yet classic design would be any different from all the others I had tried before but low and behold, how wrong could I be? This analogue ladies wristwatch has been designed by Lorus and sports a brown leather wrist strap with a brass case complemented by a yellow dial and is highly fashionable so can be worn with almost every outfit. The sophisticated watch has a leather strap which is 1.2cm wide and comes with a brass buckle and the mineral crystal glass gives you a good level of scratch and shatter resistance too. The watch weighs only 25 grams and is durable and water resistant up to 50m although I haven’t tried it in a pool as yet. Powering this stylish Lorus watch is a battery quartz movement which gives you reliable and accurate timekeeping. I wore the watch for a few days before I wrote the review so that I was 100% sure that it was comfortable and a good fit and this easy-to-wear watch is ideal for those who prefer a smaller style. Delivered in a sturdy and safe gift box and covered in a plastic face protection which easily peels off and would make an ideal gift for any birthday or celebration.

The Lorus ladies wrist watch also includes the 2 years manufacturer certificate of warranty.
