A Chanel lookalike
As usual I was really indecisive and couldn't decide which one to get. I was originally going to buy a boyfriend style Guess one but it was just too big for my small wrists, plus at £150 it wasn't cheap.
Whilst browsing the Argos catalogue I came across this Sekonda one that is almost an exact copy of the Chanel J12 watch I'd seen in stores. Initially I wasn't too sure about the white plastic strap but its much nicer in person than in pictures and it doesn't look at all cheap or tacky. I've since found several blogposts mentioning this watch so its quite a hit with beauty bloggers.
The watch retails at barginous £19.99 from Argos and comes in black and white designs. Its also currently buy one get one half price but I didn't think I'd ever wear the black one so just got this one.
The only downside is that you can't get the straps adjusted in store, it needs to be sent back to the manufacturers which is a pain. I've not had mine done yet so can't say how long it would take. Despite this I love the watch and it'll certainly keep me happy until I can afford some real Chanel.
ETA. I took it to another branch, and it turns out you can get them adjusted, it just depends on the store.
