Shore Project Watches – my new favourite accessory

August 24, 2015 No Comments

I’ve written about my love for Shore Project watches before so when they got in touch and asked me if I’d do them a favour (not this review by the way) in return for a gift box that contained one of their watches and four straps I was more than happy to take them up on the offer. I’ll be honest for the last few months before I received the watch I was umming and ahhhing about when to buy one, so when the email came through I jumped at the chance to get my hands on one.

And let me tell you – it hasn’t disappointed me at all. I’ve always been a watch wearer, and I’ve always been a fan of more chunky and maybe practical watches – I’m not a dainty watch strap kind of gal. But last year when I managed to lose the bezel, smash the screen and have the battery go in my watch I stopped wearing one all together. I became the person who gets their phone out to look at the time to do it seconds later because they ended up checking instagram instead. So having a watch on my arm feels like I’m me again.

The thing I love about these watches is they are totally customisable to you – you choose your face from three different Projects, (I chose the Cowes from Project 2, but I am also smitten with the Lulworth’s blue face from Project 3!) and then you choose your strap. In the interest of making my watch as universal as possible I went for a strap for every occasion – silver mesh, mint green fabric, navy polka dots and brown leather. Something for every outfit!

I’ll be totally honest, going from having not worn a watch for 8 months to this, I worried it might be a bit big for my wrist, but that really hasn’t been the case – it just took a bit of getting used to – especially as I am one of those odd balls who wear their watch on the inside of their wrist! I mostly have the silver mesh strap on at the moment but the mint green came to Glastonbury with me as it’s so simple to switch them over. And after a couple of months of wearing it’s held up really well – it’s been camping, festivalling, swimming, on my wrist all day every day and both the face and casing are unscathed!

The box set is £170 for the watch face, four interchangable straps (each with their own store bag) and a really lovely shopper that I use all the time too, which I think is a pretty awesome price. A watch with one strap starts at £115, and the straps are from £20 and if you sign up to their newsletter you get a free strap on your birthday! 

*Like I said although I was sent the watch free, it wasn’t for the purpose of this review. I’m about 99.9% sure I’d have bought one with my hard earned cash because I love the way they look!*
