With the options available for watches it can be really hard to decide what to choose. Personally I love watches that exude elegance and sophistication and I recently discovered one that did just that. Everyone knows that the Swiss are master craftsmen when it comes to watches but many in the UK are not all aware of a company called Welly Merck who pride themselves on creating the most exquisite watches.
The name Welly Merck comes from it’s founders names combined. It was love at first sight for Welly who was from a traditional watch-making family and Merck from a steel artisan family and to commemorate their marriage and love for each other they created their own watch brand in 2015. Although fairly new to the scene their connections with designers and manufactures have allowed them to create some beautiful pieces.
As you know from my previous posts luxury watches make wonderful collectables and also great investments. In some cases they do cost a significant amount and may price some people out of buying. Fortunately Welly Merck is a company that provides the ultimate in Swizz quality for a fraction of the price providing affordable luxury to many. I have included an exclusive discount for Melanie’s Fab Finds readers a little further down.
This post is for everyone that loves beautifully crafted watches that are timeless and make wonderful gifts that will be treasured for always.
When Welly Merck asked me to chose a watch to review I was like a child in a candy shop they were so lovely I couldn’t decide what to chose but I will admit recent fashion trends did influence my decision. Rose gold has recently seen a rise in popularity as of late and it’s not surprising it is lovely and makes a change from gold and silver. With an embarrassing lack of this colour in my jewellery collection I decided that now was the time to rectify the situation with a rose gold coloured watch so naturally I chose the Classic New York watch. The great thing about these is that the straps are interchangeable so If you fancy changing the strap colour or style simply purchase one of the additional straps which are available in mesh, leather and nylon with a range of colours available in each option.
The watches come beautifully packaged in sturdy boxes to keep their precious contents safe from damage.
The design of the packaging is minimalist. The bright bold outer packaging really stands out and looks great at the same time. The black logo embossed outer card looks effortlessly stylish and sophisticated. I was really impressed by the presentation of the product and the effort that has gone into the packaging.
Within the outer box and protective card sleeve is a black leather bound box. This is lovely and is great for storage when the product is not in use.
The watch is stunning as you can see. The large face which is in fashion at the moment looks great and the rose gold bars stand out and look very pretty. The face is thin which I like as I’m not keen on anything chunky and it adds to its feminine style. The watch has sapphire glass crystal over the dial adding to its durability and appeal. Sapphire crystal is extremely hard, to put this into perspective the only crystals harder are diamonds. The result is a glass that is extremely hard to scratch or break. The watch also comes with a black face option should you prefer.
The watch is easy to put on without assistance as the strap simply slides through and the clasp clips down securing the watch after you have adjusted it to the correct size.
This watch looks lovely on it’s own and also with rose gold and silver bracelets. It is perfect for everyday wear and special occasions to add a touch of glamour to any outfit. The prices vary from $199 to $285.
Do you have any watch collectors / lovers in your family that would love a luxury watch?
