Armani Exchange Black Dial Leather Strap AX2101 Men’s Watch

Diwali was just round the corner and I hadn’t yet finished shopping for the customary gifts. As a bank executive with an international bank based in Bangalore, I had found very little time to complete my chores during the past two weeks. Some gifts were already purchased – like my mom’s Kanjivaram saree and dad’s silk kurta. It was my younger brother Aakash whose gift was still to be purchased.

Well, honestly speaking, I am at a loss as to what would be the most ideal gift for him. Aakash is due to graduate from college this academic year. Perhaps a nice designer watch would be a suitable gift…

A few rounds at the local watch stores in Bangalore revealed there wasn’t much choice by way of designer watches. Moreover, designer timepieces available in India are way too expensive and beyond my budget. There wasn’t enough time to visit more stores so I thought it best to get Aakash’s designer watch online.

There was plenty of choice online, besides most stores were selling products at huge discounts. Searching through several online watch stores, I discovered the  Armani Exchange Black Dial Leather Strap AX2101 Men’s Watch here:  

Aakash is a huge fan of the Armani brand; I know that he owns quite a few clothes from this well-known Italian designer label. I guessed he would be suitably impressed with this designer watch from his favourite brand. The Armani Exchange [AX2101] is quite an attractive timepiece in black and silver, which I supposed would be the perfect Diwali gift for Aakash.

Armani Exchange, the Italian fashion label draws a lot of interest from Indian youngsters. It is like a status symbol to own something from an international brand and I was pretty sure Aakash would be more than thrilled with this watch.

The matte finish of the stainless-steel dial of the AX2101 complements the black dial with white hour markers and silver-coloured hands. Although black, the dial is easy to read and tells the time at a quick glance. A good quality genuine leather strap, also in black, completes the stunning picture. It’s no doubt a sleek and stylish watch, one that would surely stand out and create a style statement.

A quartz movement, scratch resistant mineral crystal and 50m water resistance are good enough features for a dress watch. City Watches IN were offering the timepiece at a bargain price of Rs.7,376/- down from a whopping Rs 11,406/-.  I think this was it – I had found a superb gift for Aakash.

I purchased the Armani Exchange Black Dial Leather Strap AX2101 Men’s Watch right away. City Watches would deliver it in three days’ time, just before Diwali. Great, my job is done!
