I am so excited to share my review and give you a chance to win an Original Grain Minimalist watch ($149USD currently on sale for $119USD)! When I was younger, I totally didn’t understand the allure of a watch. When my parents tried to buy me one, I snubbed them like a teenager would. However, since I started going to university for business I’ve been wearing a watch every single day and love the classy and easy design of the Original Grain Minimalist watch.
My first watch was the Michael Kors Parker Glitz watch which I got almost four years ago! Now, I rotate between that one, a simple Fossil watch, and a silver Casio watch. However, I was totally missing a watch that would be dressy without the glitz of my Michael Kors watch. The new Minimalist design from Original Grain is perfect!
The watch arrived in a beautiful wooden box with the logo stamped on the front. There is a velvet inner layer that holds the actual watch. The Minimalist is the thinnest wood bezel ever cut for a watch and the face is a 40mm case.
There are eight color options available and mine is Zebrawood/Rosegold. I was really missing something like this in my watch collection. The color coordinates with tons of outfits and it’s suitable for business, parties and even casual days.
I love how thin the casing is and it’s super comfortable to wear. There is no second hand so that took a little getting used to. However, the watch has been completely accurate (not like my MK watch) for the past month. The only thing I’d have liked to see on the face is the date display. The straps are made of leather and there was enough pre punched holes to fit comfortably on my wrist. I have a pretty small wrist so usually I always have to get it altered.
To get a bit more technical, the face features mineral crystal glass, a 1.7mm wood bezel inlay, 40mm case and the case height is 6mm. The watch runs on a Japanese quartz movement and the bands can be removed to customize with any of your other watch bands.
The only things I wish this watch had were the second hand, a date display, and a more water resistant design. However, overall I’ve been loving the look of this watch and how it matches a large majority of my outfits. The price is very reasonable too for a quality made and sleek watch.
So now it’s your chance to win one!
