You may have seen a while back I blogged about a new watch, the Rose Gold and Peach Watch from The Fifth Watches. Since getting it I’ve definitely become a watch convert – while I don’t wear it as an every day thing, it’s so beautiful that it adds an extra dimension to any outfit, and I still love putting it on.

I’d been keeping an eye on the company, and trying to decide when to get another, when out of the blue they announced a new additional collection in the September release: ‘New York Classic’. The first collection is now re-branded ‘Melbourne Minimal’ and the two are quite different. Where the ‘Minimal’ watches are thick dials with wide, modern straps, the ‘Classic’ are what it says on the tin: a much more traditional stitched strap style, and this time a thin dial. The signature look of the dial from the original collection remains, including the ‘V’ over the fifth hour. Also, you actually get two strap options provided with each watch, so it’s almost like you get two in one!

A great thing about these watches is that they’re unisex because the styles are so classic. My husband loved the design of the Rose Gold and Peach, just not the colour! So when I showed him the new collection we decided to get one between us, and agreed on “Broadway”, otherwise known as Black & Gold. It arrived last week…

First of all, the packaging is seriously stylish. Getting this in the post feels pretty special.

The Broadway comes with one black suede strap one black leather strap. The suede strap softens the design and adds a more informal edge, while the leather keeps it classic.

Oh, and when I said the dial is flat, I really meant it…

Talking of the dial, just take a look at it. The gold detailing catches the light at every turn.

The little details from the Minimal collection that I loved so much are still there, like the branding on the clasp.

I’ve already worn it on a night out and it went perfectly with my leather jacket and boots.

Not sure whether Martin will ever get to actually wear it at this rate…! Excuse me while I hide it…
