Review : Born Pretty Watch

November 18, 2013


My everyday watch is a Cartier Roadster (with a pink face) and I'd been looking to add a weekend watch to my wardrobe so my interest was piqued when I was contacted by Born Pretty to review one of their women's watches. Their selection of watch styles and astonishingly low prices amazed me. Most of the watches are under $10 with none topping $35. I chose a jelly watch in mint. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised that the feel and quality of the watch doesn't reflect the $5.99 price tag. It's lightweight and the oversized face and rose gold tone dials along with the rubbery silicon band give the watch both a classic and sporty vibe. I was concerned it might be too big which is a common problem for me with watches cause despite being 5'6" I have crazy small wrists. It's a little loose on the last hole but it fits. The only gripe I have is that the buckle is silver instead of rose gold but that's something I can live with and no one's going to be looking at the underside of my wrist anyway except the hubster maybe. I've been wearing it on and off for a few weeks and I really like the pretty pop of color it adds to my outfits.


With the holidays around the corner, it got me to thinking that a watch would make a terrific gift or stocking stuffer. Born Pretty carries a range of styles for both ladies and men including fashionable bracelet watches and sporty LED watches.

I should also mention that they offer free worldwide shipping. And if all that isn't enough, Born Pretty is generously extending a special 10% discount to rolala loves readers on top of their already inexpensive prices with the code ROWENALC10

Do you wear a watch? Do you tend to wear different watches with different outfits?

Disclosure: I was sent a watch for the purposes of this review. I was not provided any other compensation and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.

  8. Hi Rowena! You remind me that I need a new watch too!:) I tend to wear different models with different outfits, even though at the end the ones I usual wear are the same. This mint one is beautuful, is incredible it is so cheap since it looks really high quality. Have just checked the site out and there is lots of nice stuff. Have a good start of the week my dear, big kisses! xo

  11. I must admit I don't wear a watch just because I tend to misplace them a lot, like my eyeglasses...sigh....this colour mint is too cute though, and because of the price, it's not too bad if someone misplaces it....ahem....:P

    ReplyDelete
  12. The watch looks really pretty Rowena! I love the rose gold and turquoise together. I tend to have different watches to match the gold or silver jewellery I wear. :-))

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow the rose gold numbers and hardware really make this stand out against the blue! Gorgeous!

  14. I love the color, so pretty Rowena. I used to wear watch years ago but stopped and have relied on phone to tell me the time. Watch is definitely one of the classic accessories. Hope you are doing well.

  20. I love the color, so bright and fun! I really like to switch watches, my favorite is a pink one that I wear almost everyday, but I also have a white one that I love and right now I'm on the search for a gold one. It would definitely make a great gift idea, thank you for sharing Rowena! :)

  21. I can't believe that price! Seriously, I would never have guessed! It looks really lovely, and it has such a pretty mint color! It's a great pick!
    I missed you so much, sweetie! I can't wait to get back to a normal blogging schedule!

    Lots of love,

  28. That looks like a great second watch and I love the way you photographed it. I'm just awful when it comes to remembering to wear one, I always take them off (same with bracelets, hair clips, etc). but this one is so pretty I'd love to have it just for eye candy :)

  34. So gorgeous! I just love that color! I'm not sure I can pull it off as great as you though ;) I wonder if it comes in a neutral pink/blush?! That would be so perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  35. WAIT...WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE WATCH IS $6?!?! I was expecting it to be more expensive, since it's such a gorgeous watch! I also really like the colour, but unfortunately, I don't wear watches anymore!

  36. i guess it is the difference in production cost, not the actual quality. i used to wear different watches all the time but now i don't wear it as much to know what time it is. it has become more of a wardrobe item. :)

  37. Wow this watch is fantastic!! Just wow.

  55. That watch is beautiful considering that it only cost $6. Wow! I've been looking for a watch for a long while now. It's hard because I want one with good movement, but also one that's fashionable and affordable.

  57. I wear a large faced diamante watch that gets a lot of attention so I do like statement watches. This one looks stunning on you. Although I hadn't worn a plastic watch for a good 8 years now...not sure whether I could again.

  58. This is the cutest watch! The color reminds me of my sister, she adores everything seafoam green. :D

  59. I'm generally really bad with wearing watches, I always forget! I love the colour of this watch though, it really pops out in the photos! :)
