My daughter who just entered college, is all of 13 and had been after me for a “nice” watch. Understandably, her mother’s hand-me-down watch had scratches on the crystal and also looked hugely dated. So, I told my daughter that if she scores a “distinction” in her 10th standard results, I will buy her the watch she wants and that my budget for it was Rs 10,000/-. “Get your score and then select the watch you want” I told her.
Two months of nail-biting wait later, when the board results were out, to my delight, my daughter did make it to the distinguished list. A deal is a deal so, whilst all the running around for college admissions was happening, my daughter was also Googling for ladies’ watches.
A couple of days later, my Gudia showed me her cell phone that displayed a nice-looking ladies watch. She said “it’s just Rs 6,000 papa”. “Okay, I said, send me the link” which she did immediately and that same evening, I visited the site and made the purchase.
The link she sent me was https://www.citywatches.in; a great site with hundreds of watches from different brands. It is like a mall exclusively for watches. Moreover, they were offering huge discounts of just about every watch. Knowing India and Indian retailers, I checked out their terms, and checked out the reviews. Everything seemed okay so I went ahead and bought the watch.
It took (if I remember correctly), about a week for the Fossil Jacqueline Quartz Blush Leather Strap ES3988 Women’s Watch to arrive. The watch and the box arrived separately; I’ve no idea why but was happy so long as we got what was paid for.
Fossil Jacqueline Quartz Blush Leather Strap ES3988 Women’s Watch has a gold-plated case enclosing a pristine-white dial face. There were lovely evenly placed Roman hour markers in rose gold tone, a round date window at the bottom just above the VI-hour marker. The minute and hour hands too were in rose gold tones. The black seconds hand made a lovely contrast on the all-white dial face. To say I was impressed on my daughter’s choice would be an understatement. The watch was well worth the price.
The Fossil Jacqueline Quartz Blush Leather Strap ES3988 Women’s Watch had a nice genuine leather strap which was pinkish in colour and tastefully enhanced the beauty of the watch. The dial face was covered with a scratch resistant mineral crystal.
The watch face was large enough for me to read the time at a glance. The little booklet that came with it claimed the Fossil Jacqueline Quartz Blush Leather Strap ES3988 Women’s Watch was water resistant up to 30 meters. So, I guess, the occasional heavy shower should not have any effect on it.
The Fossil Jacqueline Quartz Blush Leather Strap ES3988 Women’s Watch is a beautiful watch and at https://www.citywatches.in, you get it at a good price.
