There are some definite perks to being a blogger. You get your own small corner of the internet to post whatever your heart feels like posting, it’s fun (although a lot of work), you meet some amazing people, (which I have and it’s awesome). And once in a while you get to try out some pretty wicked products for certain businesses and write your thoughts on them. I don’t do a whole lot of product reviews. I really try to only ever review things that really really interest me, and that I think would interest you. I contacted La Mer watches a while back and asked if they would be interested in working with me, as I am a HUGE fan of their amazingly beautiful watches. And luckily enough, they took a chance on me. And decided to send me the Brooklyn Mix Up Gold Malibu Wrap Watch (say that 5x fast!) That was a great day!
After doing a happy dance that probably looked similar to a fish flopping around on the deck of a boat, I sat and patiently waited for my watch to arrive, I did not have to wait long. The shipping took a little over a week, not bad at all.
The first thing I noticed upon opening the shipping box was how incredibly nice the packaging was. I would be so incredibly proud to give a gift to someone in such a nice box. Not only was there the awesome aqua colored outer box, but also a leather like hinge style watch box inside that contained the watch all tucked in there wrapped around a little pillow, like an engagement ring for your wrist! Perfect for storage and I have already started mentally drawing up plans to make a wooden cabinet to display my watches/boxes in for the future as I am already 100% this will be the first of MANY La Mer watches I will own.
I loved the watch as soon as I saw it. The Brooklyn Mix Up is one of La Mers very elegant and reserved styles. This is a watch you could dress up or down very easily with the perfect tones to match almost any outfit. The 22” long leather strap is amazingly soft and is made to fit the smallest to the thickest of wrists. The 14K gold Malibu chain that is attached has some weight to it, but not enough that you even really notice it’s there. I can barely feel the watch on my wrist it is so comfortable, yet you know it is secure and won’t fall off like some I have owned. With 14k gold rivets and the La Mer Collections signature 14k gold plated Odyssey watch case, this watch is a brilliant addition to my wardrobe.
I get so many compliments on the Brooklyn Mix up watch when I wear it (which is every day since I got it) And I get asked 3 questions over and over; Where did I get it? (La Mer of course!) If its heavy? (Not at all!) And if it’s hard to put on? And I actually find it easier to put on than any other “non wrap” watch I have owned. I think by wrapping the strap first, it’s easier to hang onto and get the clasp done up by yourself.
This watch and so many others are available at www.lamercollections.com. They have everything from the brightest neons, to understated elegant silvers and golds. La Mer also offers more than just wrap watches. They have single bands as well as necklaces too. There are so many different price points for everything that I am sure you will find something that expresses your personality, well within your budget. OH! And did I mention they have a sale section?? They do! You can find styles that are going out of stock for a steal of a deal!!
