*Daniel Wellington Review.

Hello everyone. So today's post is another different post that I normally wouldn't write about which is a watch. Now you may not know this but I love watches and I love how they can really finish off an outfit. I own about 6 watches now but I do have my favourites. My other favourite watch needs a new battery but for now, I'm not going to bother. I was kindly sent a Classy Sheffield (34mm) Rose Gold Watch by Daniel Wellington and I am over the moon.

It came really quickly (within 4 days) because it was sent by UPS and so I cannot fault Daniel Wellington for how quickly they get your watch delivered to you. My watch was shipped from Sweden but depending where you are based in the world, will depend where your watch is shipped from.

The box that the watch comes in, is absolutely gorgeous! The box is very sturdy and I think it's also made out of leather but I could be wrong but it feels like it anyway. I definitely know that my watch will be safe in this box if I had to store it in there.

What I love about the company Daniel Wellington is that they sell both Men and Women's Watches and the watches are very similar whether they are for a man or for a woman (the sizes of the watches differ slightly) but I like that.Daniel Wellington has some lovely designs, they are classic and elegant and for me, they are right up my street.

So who are Daniel Wellington?

The story behind Daniel Wellington begins with a trip half way around the globe where Filip Tysander, the founder of Daniel Wellington, met an intriguing gentleman from the British Isles. The man had the inspiring ability to be genteel but still relaxed and unpretentious. He had an impeccable style and loved to wear his watches on old weathered NATO straps. His name? Well, Daniel Wellington, of course.

A strong friendship emerged between the two, and our founder was inspired not only by the man's many great life stories but also by his class and timeless style of fashion.

The preppy trend is bigger than ever before but we felt that there was an empty space in the watch market. There was something missing and the Daniel Wellington team aims to fill that gap.

Our vision is that when someone thinks of a preppy dressed person, he or she is wearing a Daniel Wellington watch.

When Filips line of watches then came to be launched, it was therefore no insecurity that the brand would be named after Daniel Wellington.

So here is my gorgeous new watch. This is the Daniel Wellington Classy Sheffield (34mm) Rose Gold Watch. The price of this watch is £159. It's not the cheapest of watches but it's such good quality, it's totally worth the money. This watch allows you to have interchangeable straps and so you can change the strap whenever you like - providing you have another strap to change it with.

"The slightly larger watchcase of 34 mm from the Classy Collection creates beautiful harmony between case and the exclusive Swarovski crystal index. With its feminine finesse, this watch radiates just enough sparkle for you to manage your time in style. The ultra-thin (6mm) Daniel Wellington watch is suitable for every occasion. Whether you are attending a formal event, playing a game of tennis or enjoying a sunny day at the country club – Daniel Wellington makes for a beautiful companion. Not only that, but with interchangeable straps you will have a unique timepiece for every day of the week."

"A ladies’ watch from Daniel Wellington signals sophisticated elegance with a minimalist look. The classic design means you can wear your watch anywhere – at work, every day, or at parties. Whether you happen to be or whatever you are wearing, a Daniel Wellington watch perfectly complements your style."

I definitely agree that the watch is sophisticated and very elegant. I am a very minimalist person and so this watch is perfect for me. It is perfect for every day use. It's not too big or too small and it's just an amazing watch to own. Daniel Wellington certainly provide you with timeless designs that suit everyone. Daniel Wellington have sized their ladies' watches so that men and women wear them equally which I think is great. I also love how you can choose between silver and rose gold and pick an additional replaceable strap in leather or NATO.

Even more product information for anyone who is interested in the different components of the watch:

  • The base coating is 0.8 Micron TiCN (a yellow colored base metal) and the top coating is made of 0.1 Micron rose gold (made of 80% 23 carat gold and 20% copper to create the rose color).

  • The plating is fixed using an evacuated chamber and there are no liquids involved.

  • Glass
    The glass of the watch is made of hardened mineral glass. It is resistant against normal wear and tear but should be used with care.
    The expected life length of the battery is 2 to 4 years depending on outer conditions such as heat/cold.
    The battery is a silver oxide cell battery (standard button cell).
    Leather wristband
    The leather wristbands are made of Italian calf leather and are treated with vegetable oil.
    3 ATM 
    Our watches are classified as waterproof 3ATM. That means they are suitable for everyday use and are splash/rain resistant but should avoid direct contact with water.

    Here is a photo of the Daniel Wellington Classy Sheffield (34mm) Rose Gold Watch on my wrist. As you can see it is a perfect fit. I do find with most watches they are always too big for my wrist and end up moving round on my wrist but this will certainly be staying in place. It's super comfy to wear and the design is just gorgeous. I've been getting a lot of compliments while I've been wearing it. I chose the Classy Sheffield (34mm) Watch mainly because I live in Yorkshire. I live about 1 hour away from Sheffield and I thought it was such a lovely touch. I love classic pieces, I love the name and I just love the watch. I also chose it in Rose Gold because well, why wouldn't you? Rose Gold has fast become one of my favourite things but I don't own much Rose Gold. This watch is just amazing and I cannot fault it. I cannot rave about it enough.

    If you are looking for an elegant but sophisticated watch that is comfy, then I'd highly recommend Daniel Wellington. Although they are a little more pricey, they are totally worth the money. They are such good quality! My watch strap is made out of genuine Italian Leather and I would pay £159 for this watch any day.

    I would like to say a massive thank you to Daniel Wellington for sending me one of their gorgeous watches to review.
