Lately, I’ve been shopping around for an all metal watch that could be worn casually, without being too clunky. I lucked out when Lord Timepieces sent me the stunning Classic Silver Ladies watch ($98 CAD) from their women’s watch collection to review.
Watches have made a HUGE comeback in the past couple of years. I remember getting my first “grown-up” watch when I was about 9 years old. It was an analogue watch. I’ve never owned a digital watch or clock, and not because my dad thought it was important that my siblings and I know how to tell time the good ol’ fashioned way, but because I just like the look of an analogue watch better, for many reasons, one being that they are just really classic looking pieces.
Fast forward to my 30’s and I still love a beautiful watch, but, I actually use it for the purpose of telling time (and adding a bit of POW to my outfit). The big thing for me is being able to glimpse at my wrist, rather than having to search for my cell phone whenever I’m curious about the time. Besides, it’s a nice way to disconnect from social media for a little bit each day.
When you receive a watch from Lord Timepieces, it arrives in a simple black box with silver lettering. With it you receive a manual, warranty, and welcome card. The one thing I wish was included was instructions on how to adjust a mesh band to fit your wrist. I’m impatient and didn’t want to wait to have a jeweler to do this for me, and after a quick Google search, I found an easy tutorial.
The Classic Silver Ladies watch is a stainless steel version of the coveted leather boyfriend style watch. The 18mm mesh straps lends well to the 38mm face size and the ivory white dial keeps it clean and simple. What I always look for with anything I add my closet and accessories is versatility, and this watch delivers just that – wear it to the office or dress it down on the weekend. It’s well made in that it feels sturdy at all the connection points and has a good weight to it. A bonus is that it doesn’t pinch my skin. The only design detail I would have love to see is their crown logo rather than the word “Lord” on the face and clasp.
The Classic Silver Ladies Watch is priced at $98 CAD and ships free worldwide. You can’t go wrong with the price as you rarely find a well crafted and fashion forward watch for less than $100. It’s water resistant and comes with a 2 year warranty.
