Unlike my sister, I don't usually collect different designs of watches as I always find the ones that I have long-lasting and timeless. Anyway, I had Nordstrom notes to spend and I spotted Tissot Carson Leather Strap Watch in rose gold. Initially, I wasn't sure if it was even worth purchasing as it seemed quite plain, yet I couldn't get over it somehow in my head due to its classiness coming through in its traditional frame.
I really don't like to buy something that I wouldn't use, so I had to think twice before making any decision. And I came to the conclusion that I actually need an understated piece like that for more casual occasions such as going to dog parks, my man's office, travelling overseas etc. where it isn't an ideal for my favourite go-to Chanel watch.
Classic design with a minimalist flair, this dainty round watch with a fine Swiss movement is made to keep you on time to every meeting, date and all the stops in-between. The highly polished case gets a refined finish with a slender strap of crocodile-embossed leather.
- 28.5mm case; 19mm band
- Buckle closure
- Three-hand Swiss quartz movement
- Date window
- Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal face
- Stainless steel/leather
- Swiss made
I don't even need to mention about the quality of the watch as Tissot is owned by Swatch group, I used to collect Swatch watch jelly straps when I was in middle school. I was a little worried about the rose gold being too rosy, but luckily it's subtle and the watch goes well with most of my outfits. I normally wear size small for Chanel watches, and medium for bracelet-like fit, and the size of Tissot Carson Leather Strap Watch is perfect.
I was actually thinking after I got the watch, I should get another one for my mother too who goes to her university library often and runs a study group with her classmates. And why not, Mother's Day is approaching, and I think she will love it as she leans more towards to traditional side :).
