I’ve always worn a watch, I’d be lost without won. I can remember my very first Timex windup watch, and then the time I was allowed an upgrade to a Casio digital watch. I thought I was the bees knees! I’ve always had nice watches but not high-end ones. One’s that could survive a night out on the town when I was younger! When I got divorced I decided I was going to splash out on a Gucci watch. I’ve always wanted a special watch, the time seemed right and I thought I’d go for a Bangle style watch like this you can buy at The Watch Hut.
I have really small wrists so I needed to see if this style of watch would be ok. Every time I went away with work, I’d end up trying the watch on at the airport. Should it be my special watch? I just wasn’t sure when I actually had it on my wrist. I kept talking about my special watch, and when I went on a girls holiday, everyone gave me their opinion, when I tried it on again. General consensus – lovely watch, but the bangle was just too big for me.
Before I knew it I was moving in to my own home, paying a mortgage by myself and spending money on a special watch seemed a bit frivolous. So I put my plan for a special watch on the back burner.
Then I met Daddy P, and life changed again. When we got engaged we had to get the ring he’d picked resized and I made some throw away comment about my special watch, a Gucci watch. It wasn’t meant as a hint, he NEVER picks up on hints. It was comment made, and then forgotten about. I was pregnant, Monkey was on the way.
My bundle of fun arrived a couple of weeks before Christmas 2009, and Daddy bought me a present. Lovely I thought, that’s very sweet. When I opened the box I burst into tears. He’d actually remembered something I’d said. He had bought me a special watch, not the bangle style one, something totally different, but a Gucci watch. I’ve worn it every day since.
We had to have a load of links taken out, but I do love my special watch. Every time I check the time, I think of my Monkey, and the one time Daddy P actually listened to me!!
Do you have a special watch or a dream watch?

i used to wear watch until phone came along! now i had not worn a watch for years. but each time, i want to know the time, i look at my waist thinking the watch is there! i should really get a watch!
I’m really hoping you mean wrist Eileen 😀
I have a special watch but I daren’t wear it. It is a small gold one that was given to my Nan on her 21st Birthday, she wore it everyday and it has been stretched. Last time I enquired to have the bracelet mended it was going to cost £100’s so it has stayed as I remember it. I wore it for my wedding and it reminds me of my Nan. For the last few years I haven’t worn a watch at all. And this is where we differ, I am always late!
What a wonderful thing to treasure though. Oh dear,lateness – not good!!!
Wow, a Gucci watch – think I’ll have to keep dreaming about ever owning one of those!
I do love it, he really did do well with that one.
I have a special watch that my Grandparents bought me for my birthday when I was 13. I have never ever worn it because I don’t want to break it 😀
Oh wow, what a wonderful thing to have Jenny.
What a lovely surprise! I’m not really a watch person but have a couple I was bought for special occasions which are very special to me.
It was very surprising, trust me, he is not a man to do things like that at all!!
