lilac oclock

Just as I announced my giveaway winner yesterday, today I can show off something that I won courtesy of Merowyn at Blithely Unaware. How cool is is Oclock watch? They come in a range of colours and the clock face is interchangeable with the bands. I can see myself quickly stocking up on more colours. All the colours of the rainbow, even. On a side note, look at how mangled the tin is! I can’t even begin to imagine what happened to it in transit. I probably should have complained to the courier company (which I have mentally black listed) but by the time I realised, it had already been signed for and the courier was out the gate. The watch is safe and sound though, so I’m not too fussed about the tin. It’s just amusing. I doubt this watch will be spending much time in storage anyway because I’ll be showing it off every chance I get. Also, would it be overkill if I wore it with lilac nail polish? Discuss.

    Oh my stars the tin!!!!!!!!!!!

    It looks great on you, I love the way the lilac almost glows.

    Ok, I will admit I have been known to wear my mine lilac polish… hmmmmm still don't know if it's too much or not.

    @Merowyn: that was pretty much my reaction too. Because those are pretty sturdy tins. I think they must have been transporting elephants in the cargo too! haha. I think I'll give the double lilac a go!

    it's such a beautiful, minimalist watch! and it looks so lovely with your skin tone. in regards to the nail polish, give it a go! you can always take it off if it's too much.

    Ohh that watch is super cool! Love the minimalism of it. I wish I used my watch more often- but usually end up checking my phone/ipod ๐Ÿ™

    I love the colour! I want one now haha

    That would never be overkill but it would work well having your fingers spread out and comparing the nail colour with your watch..

    The tin is pretty distroted.. What would have happened for it to get into that condition…

  7. ching February 15, 2011

    omg that clock is minimalistic at its best!

  8. Carissa February 15, 2011

    so cuuuutee <3 I love simplicity in every little thing ๐Ÿ˜€

    It's beautiful, I really need a lovely watch, so sick of using my phone to check the time! I'd give lilac nail polish a go.. why not, hey? I think it'd look cute.

    Uh, yeah, no shock. My story of stupid: parcel was weeks late already, emailed the company and one item was out of stock. Finally get it sent, but I've moved since then so I rang the courier company to make sure the mail redirection would work, apparently it would. Well, it didn't because I had to drive past my old house and there it was, on the verandah, no one had signed for it when it was required. THANKS ALOT!!!
    That's the only thing I hate about internet shopping.
    And that's not the first time I've had problems either, but I won't go there!
    Anyways, I say lilac polish or any other pastel would work well. I think yellow would look really good, or perhaps a light brown that I keep seeing around?
    Love the watch btw, and I want one now!!

  11. STACY February 15, 2011

    I definitely need to get my hands on one of these!!
    Lilac nail polish, is a must! Or even the opposite; I'd be tempted to try yellow haha.

  23. julie iliana February 17, 2011

    firstly, yourblogissosweeet! secondly, what an awesome watch! I wouldn't mind wearing that, usually I don't wear them but that one is pretty neat to not wear. thirdly, I say go for the lilac on lilac!


  24. S and R February 19, 2011

    hmmm, don't know why but i'm thinking teal nails vs lilac watch. could be too much though.

  25. […] There’s just something about the minimalist design that appeals to me. I used to have a lilac coloured one that I wore all the time. I was so attached to it that when the band broke I may or may not have […]
