Phosphor Appear Watch.

I've been meaning to do this post for quite some time. But getting a good photo proves difficult. It doesn't truly capture the dazzling glitzy lustre of the Swarovski crystals that cover the entire face.

Check out my lovely little beauty:

Ordinarily, I'm not a fan of watches but I'd been looking for something a bit different and when I saw this video from Leesha (xsparkage), I knew I had to have it.

One might say, love at first sight.

You have to admit though, it's not like anything you've ever seen on a watch face before. Amiright?

I bought mine from Twisted Time, which have amazing customer service (more on that a bit later).

This is what they have to say on how it works:

The new Phosphor Appear (Formally Phosphor Reveal) watch line skillfully blends design and technology to craft the ultimate fashion timepiece.

Driven by Micro-Magnetic Mechanical Digital (M3D) technology, the Phosphor Appear watch utilizes miniature-sized rotors adorned with Swarovski crystals that revolve to reveal numerical or chronological information. With each minute, an electrical pulse generates an electromagnetic field that changes the position of the crystals on the face of the watch, to elegantly display the passing time, while producing a distinctive sound unique to the Phosphor Appear digital watch line.

The basic ''time'' mode features a 12-hour display, with the hours positioned above the minutes on the face. The watch face also offers a ''seconds'' mode and ''off'' mode, showing an entire face of crystals with no time display.

Pretty neat, huh?

Originally I wanted the white. I've been lusting after white watches ever since I clapped eyes on a Chanel J12. Just like black, they're timeless and match everything. So I ordered the white as a treat to myself and as it was the last one in stock, it was clearly meant to be!

I was so damn excited to get it, it seemed to take forever to get here. When in reality it was 3 days or less. So imagine my horror (remember this is the white I ordered here!) when I opened it up to find an obvious red stain on the strap.

The strap is leather which I'm more than aware of, can often come with minor blemishes but this was quite big and extremely noticeable on such a crisp white background.

I was gutted! So I fired off an email to the shop owner and asked if I could replace it for a red one as I'd bought the last white one. He was completely wonderful about it and as soon as he received my return, sent a red one out straight away.

Now I have the red one, I'm glad I do. I much prefer it over the white as the white had black crystals instead of red on the face and it just looks to me like there's something lacking. The strap on this one has a very subtle shimmer too. It's not obvious but it gives it a little lift.

All in all a wonderful, robust (I've bashed it about so much since buying it in the Summer), quirky watch.

I've had so many compliments from people of all ages. Even male OAPs!

An expensive but worthwhile purchase in my opinion. Do check out Twisted Time if you're looking for a new watch. I guarantee you'll find all sorts of against the norm watches, that will make your wrist a talking point.
