Christmas Watch Lust List
|One of my favourite watches, now over 10 years old!
I love watches. I think my love affair started back when I was coming of age and needed a watch for ‘big school’. I was given by my parents a gorgeous watch that had a cat on the face and a mouse ran round as the sweeping second hand. I adored it and it made me feel all grown up. Sadly I was only to own it for a short time and the story ends with tragedy. If I’d lost it, or better still, broken it, I’d be okay, but that wasn’t what happened to my poor cat watch. I say a ‘fellow’ classmate had put it in the bin when I had to take it off for food technology class, but I didn’t know of it’s whereabouts until later, and it was too late. It came as no surprise to me some years later to find out this trustworthy person is now a politician…
So, my yearning for my favourite, most precious watch has turned me into a watch whore. Quality is everything to me, I love a top end brand and beauty makes me weak at the knees.
I have a fair few watches – mostly DKNY, Guess and Miss Sixty – but I’m looking to purchase a new one very soon; an early Christmas present if I really can’t wait for Santa’s delivery! I recently won the big Tresemme and Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model competition to go to Birmingham for a make over plus lunch at Selfridges with £450 to spend in store, so I may pop to The Watch Hut concession and see what’s there!
My ideal next watch purchase will be analogue with a leather strap, a clear face and easy to see numerical marks.

Are you particular about what your watch looks like? Like a certain style? Do you think your choice of watch says something about your taste or personality?
