MY NEW WATCH: ABBOTT LYON- THE MOCHA COLLECTION & UNBOXING*

Abbott Lyon are a super chic British Watch, Jewellery & Accessory Company based in Bath. They sell the most gorgeous minimalistic timeless pieces and I am a little bit obsessed with them. Back in February I was contacted out of the blue by them on Instagram to say I had been selected as their winner from their 'Picture Of the Week' feature with the prize being £100 to spend on their website. Needless to say this absolutely made my day/week/month probably my year too and I couldn't wait to have a browse on their website, heading straight to the 'New In' section.

MY (VERY LUCKY) INSTAGRAM PICTURE 

INTRODUCING MY NEW WATCH:




The first watch that caught my eye was one from their new collection the 'Mocha Chain Stellar 40'. It is so chic, so timeless and so elegant and it has the most perfect rose gold accents running through it. This watch definitely ticks all the boxes for the qualities I tend to look for. I picked up a gift set bundle, which I think a relatively new addition to the website, therefore it came with a Mocha T-Bar Bangle too which I wear on my alternate wrist.




This watch is unisex which is great and it arrived super quickly in a really nice gift box. I own the 'Rose Gold Chain Stellar 40' already which I featured in my Instagram post, I've been wearing it for months and I have received so many compliments about it which is always nice. Something I also love about this brand is that the watch straps are interchangeable so you can switch up your look easily without having to invest in another watch.

I love how well the bangle coordinates with the watch. It is little bit tricky to get on and off (maybe I just have chunky wrists) but looks super cute when it's on. I haven't come across any other watches in this colour on the market (as of yet) but this colour would look really nice paired with rose gold accessories as well as the other items in the Mocha range. I also have my eye on the Mella range, Mella is a Spanish word for dent and these watches have the most beautiful hammered watch faces. If you're looking for a new watch I definitely recommend checking them out as they do it on the mocha shade too (linked here!)




Abbott Lyon run some amazing promotions from time to time, you can also get a 10% discount if you sign up to their mailing list and Unidays always have codes if you have access to that. A.L currently have an offer on at the moment on their website, if you spend over £100 you get 20% off with the code 'GET20'. I also recommend you check Instagram before you make a purchase too because they post discount codes on there regularly as well.

If you are interested in picking a watch up and you are a student I recommend checking Unidays at the time of the year where the student loans drop (September, January, April) I picked my first watch up back in April for 25% off and when you're spending over £100 on something it brings the price down quite significantly.


The straps are adjustable although I'm not the best at it and I was lucky enough that my watch was a perfect fit when it arrived so I didn't have to faff. The last one I ordered was so tight and I didn't realise I could loosen it until the point where it was starting to cut off my circulation in the day and I decided enough was enough but just a heads up you can adjust it. Abbott Lyon also offer and engraving service which would make for the perfect gift for yourself or somebody else, your initials just make it that extra bit special & it would be a lovely thing to pass down in years to come.

Abbott Lyon watches are available directly through their website and they are now stocked in John Lewis too which is really helpful to get an idea of what your watch is going to look like before you buy although I must say the pictures on the website are pretty spot on.


I hope this post has been of some interest, I am absolutely thrilled with my watch.
I also just wanted to say a huge thank you to Abbott Lyon for gifting me such a generous voucher, they really are the best.

Thanks for reading,
Until next time
