They have quite a range of ladies watches on Amazon; unfortunately I can't see one which looks similar.

Re: Watches.

I still have one of these brilliant SOLSUNO LED watches though I don't wear it any more.

I yearned for someone to make a "different" watch that wasn't analogue (they all essentially look the same) and wasn't basic digital (market is flooded with them).

So when these guys invented the SOLSUNO watch I snapped it up.

It basically uses LEDs to indicate the time. The outer ring is the Hours, the middle ring Minutes and inner ring seconds.

So the time in the image below is 2:22 and 50 secs am.
If I remember right the extra led below the 12 O'clock indicates if we are am or pm





Despite the simple appearance the watch could show day of the week, day, month, year as well as time and also had 3 different alarms, an hourly chime, am/pm indicator, alarm activated display and auto power off.

A neat bit of kit.

Re: Watches.

I have a few, a Gucci that was a birthday present and a radley which was a leaving gift and a seiko I've had since I can remember. All sat unworn in a jewellery box. I use my phone

John Cleese used to advertise Accurist watches on TV. "It's accurate, and it goes on your wrist."

I really like that. It appeals to my sense of the unusual.

I have one of these. Solar powered bought in the USA in 2003 and still gong strong.
I used to be a shift worker so knowing what day it was, as well as the time, has always been important to me in a watch.
