CURRENT OBSESSION- The Six Watches

There is so much beauty in things that are simple. More and more do I love things that don't have all the bells and whistles. I'm a bit of a minimalist, especially when it comes to clothes and accessories, so I was thrilled when I was gifted the super trendy Chelsea watch from The Six Watches team (thanks so very much for the love!) I love repping my city and the SIX logo is perfectly placed so I will always be reminded of home no matter where I am.

This watch features gold accents and a grey leather strap. I wear all sorts of colours and funny enough, the Chelsea watch worked well with any outfit in my wardrobe :) I'm happy to have such a versatile watch! At 36mm, its also perfect for my small wrist.  The leather felt very soft and was super comfortable. I'm currently obsessed with this watch! I wore this watch on a casual night out but it also looked great when I dressed up. The gold and grey complement each other well. Watches make perfect gifts, and the Chelsea watch came in a sleek black box that looks just as pretty as the watch.



If you're one that likes to get technical about what's inside a watch, the Chelsea watch uses a Japanese Quartz movement. What does that mean? 

A quartz timepiece is powered by a battery that sends an electrical signal through a piece of crystal quartz. The quartz vibrates 32768 times per second, creating a signal with a precise frequency. The vibrations are measured by the circuit and converted into a single pulse every second. The consistent movement of the watch hands is a result of this pulse.

So what are the benefits Of Quartz movement anyway?

Accurate Time: A quartz mechanism barely veers from the exact time, ensuring superior accuracy.

Ease Of Use: Quartz watches are battery-powered and do not require human intervention to keep ticking.

Low Maintenance: The low number of moving parts and the presence of a battery ensure that quartz watches are lower maintenance.

Less Expensive: Mechanical and automatic watches require more watchmaking hours and skill. Quartz watches are hence cheaper.

Durability: A quartz timepiece has fewer moving parts that may require repairing, making it more durable than a mechanical watch.

I am by no means a watch collector, but I was impressed with the manufacturing of the Chelsea watch since it feels very well made. The Six Watches would be my pick if you're looking to satisfy the need for a well made, minimalist watch that works well with any wardrobe.
