The fun sweetie Swatch watches initially caught my eye in Paris, when I was browsing through the design pieces in concept heaven Colette. Here they stood out as cheap and cheerful amongst the luxuriously expensive jewellery.
Switzerland is renowned for watches, and Swatch has always been a popular brand with an accessible price mark and collections to suit all ages. When I was younger I loved my Flik Flak Swatch watches, which were available in varying endearing designs, often decorated with sparkling gems. For adults the colours and styles are endless, some are classic others very unique.
The current ‘Pastry Chefs’ special collection features 11 watches. This series is particularly nice for Spring and Summer, filled with the soft, sweet colours and illustrations of a candy shop. The designs are bright and tantalising, using favourite sweet treats like macaroons and liquorice to entice you. My favourite is the Sprinkled watch, in which the clock face and the plastic strap are covered completely in a photo of hundreds and thousands. This multi-coloured accessory will brighten up your wrist
The ‘Sprinkled’ Watch costs £44.50 and is available online here.
