Your New Summer Watch

Sometimes our clients inspire our fashion choices, which is how I came to own my new Sprout sparrow watch. One of our clients has been sporting a perfectly chic, white Swatch all summer. This inspired me to replace the battery on my much-loved, extremely well-worn Swatch with a butterfly face on it.   I loved rediscovering an old favorite and having a cute watch that I could wear to the park with the kids or to SolidCore without worry. Side note: I have been in the bad habit of damaging my nice watches for the last year and was down to just my very summery Liberty of London watch, which also has a small crack on the inside of the crystal.

Then the plastic band of my Swatch cracked in half. Granted, it is plastic and it was probably 10 years old, but I was still upset. I saw this as a sign that I ought to initiate the hunt for a new, exciting, inexpensive summer watch.  I quickly narrowed my search down to 3 brands: Swatch, Timex, and Sprout. Sprout won because it is eco-friendly and they had a watch with a bird on it. In case you didn’t know, I love birds. See picture below.

Happy Shopping,

small first name
