Swatch Irony White Chain Quartz YSS254G Women’s Watch

Life in the metros is pretty hectic especially for those of us living in the maximum city. In Mumbai, travelling to work meant catching the 8.06 am train to reach office in time. As usual, I was among the first ones to get into the 1st class ladies’ compartment that day. Settling down in my seat to read the newspaper, I casually looked at my wrist to check the time. With a start, I realised my watch had slipped off in the rush to secure a seat. By then, the train had already zipped out of the station and perhaps my watch too was left behind.

My trusty old Titan timepiece was lost and now I needed a new one. I didn’t have the time to do the rounds of malls to find something to my liking. My colleague Lata suggested we check out options online.   A few searches later, the City Watches, India website showed a promising array of women’s watches.

Lata and I shortlisted the Swatch Irony White Chain Quartz Women’s watch, but before placing an order I wanted compare prices at different sites. Turned out that I was getting the best deal at
