Today I’m wearing: the Nixon Kensington

Way back in 2008, I happened upon a watch that I wanted badly. It was during the phase when I became mildly obsessed with royal blue (the dust currently gathering on my royal blue suede 80’s heels is proof that phase didn’t entirely last) and when I saw the Nixon Kensington, with it’s royal blue face and gleaming gold surround I knew it was the one for me. But, alas, I couldn’t justify spending £150 on a watch. Ever since then I thought about that watch on a regular basis. I even Googled it every so often – pathetic I know, like looking up an ex-boyfriend on Facebook or something. Eventually, to my dismay, it was discontinued by Nixon. But then, a couple of weeks ago another idle Google revealed that, lo and behold, a blue and gold Kensington was available, this time a second-hand unworn watch on eBay. With a starting bid of £40 it still wasn’t cheap (that’s right, I’m very frugal when it comes to accessories) and in fact I let it go once because I couldn’t bring myself to place a starting bid that high. Eventually though, one relisted item, seven days and a furious last minute bidding war later, the watch I waited three years for was mine. At £35, that’s a 75% discount. And I love it.

    That is a beauty – and a bargain. Usually I go for watchfaces where you can see all the wonderful workings but I agree that royal blue might be enough to convert me.
