How are we all this week? 27 days until Christmas, eek! Talking about Christmas here's a watch I think would be an absolutely perfect gift. My readers may recognise this watch brand as I blogged about their Rose Gold watch from their New York classic range last year. I was surprised to learn that the wonderful team at the 5th had actually read my post, and was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to review a watch from their Tokyo range. I have also been given a 10% discount code for all my readers, just type in "IZZY" at the checkout.
As some of you may know, since Cinderella I have loved the colour blue, so when I was given the chance to choose a watch from the 5th's range, I could not not choose the Natsu which you can purchase HERE. Each of the watches from the 5th's Tokyo range are named after the seasons in Japan: FUYU represents winter, AKI Autumn, HARU Spring, NATSU Summer and TSUYU demonstrates the rainy sides.
These pictures show my first impressions and unboxing of the Natsu. This is an honest opinion of this watch.
Sandblasted Silver Casing
316L Stainless Steel Bezel
Hardened Mineral Crystal Lens
Japanese Quartz Movement
Water Resistant 5ATM
Face Diameter 40.0mm
Case Thickness 8.0mm
Strap Length 115mm / 73mm
Strap Width 18mm
I love the packaging. Anything with neutral, subtle tones wins me over straight away. When I first unboxed the watch my first thought was, oh goodness I'm going to break it whilst trying to click the straps together. The mechanism is actually really simple and is a great way to switch up different colours.
Comparing this from my Rose Gold watch you can tell straight away that the Natsu has a way more minimalistic look. I have to say, the first couple of days I was wearing the watch I thought, I kind of missing having 'The Fifth' written on the clock face, but having worn it for a bit longer, I actually really love the simple look. This watch is subtle, understated but at the same time makes for a great fashion piece. The colour (as I am biased towards this colour) is just perfect for any time of the year. I also really like how the leather straps have two loops rather than the two in the New York classic range. It just means that you won't have the strap randomly coming loose.
If you haven't heard of the 5th or their concept, they sell their watches on the 5th of every month and are only available for sale for five days. So their next launch will be 5th December! I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you so much again to the 5th and for all you wonderful people for reading! Remember if you want to get any of their watches to apply to code :)
Take care and speak soon!
