The Fifth Watches: Aki // Rose Gold and Navy Blue – Tokyo range review*

You may or may not have seen my previous reviews on The Fifth Watches (or ‘The 5th’), but just in case you don’t know, I’m a massive fan. I bought my first watch, the Melbourne Rose Gold and Peach watch from the Minimal range back in 2014, just after they first launched.

The Broadway (Black & Gold) from the New York range followed in 2015.

So, when the lovely guys there got in touch and offered to send me a watch from the Tokyo range, I couldn’t say no!

As with all of the watch collections, there are 5 to choose from, this time representing the seasons (I know there are only 4 seasons, you bright sparks – The 5th have included a ‘rainy’ season as well).

I chose the ‘Aki’, or Autumn.*

I’ve had my eye on the Aki for a while. It expertly represents autumn, a season of mixture and change: a dark navy leather strap, with a sandblasted rose gold watch casing and buckle. The face is white, as are the number indicators (including the ubiquitous ‘V’ for 5) and the minute and hour hands, while the minute hand is dark blue.

The leather strap is awesome quality as always, thick yet supple.

I still love these little touches.

The packaging, by the way, is just as beautiful as the watch!

I’m not sure you’d call it a motto as such but The 5th live by the phrase, “Time is what we make it”. I couldn’t agree more.

The watches go on sale every month on the 5th for a limited time. Styles sell out really quickly, so if there’s one you like the look of, I recommend signing up to become a ‘VIP’ and receive early access as well as being able to preload your cart.
