My husband has always been a watch-wearer, but recently his watch broke.
It isn’t a particularly funny story, so I’ll save you the detail, but he was sad and late, so when I was offered the Globenfeld Limited Edition Antique Blue Steel Men’s Automatic Watch for review I thought I’d score some wife points and get it for him.
Before it arrived I was a little dubious, as I often am about anything on Amazon that is available well below the RRP; in this case the watch was reduced from £199 right down to £79.99, so less than half price! However when it was delivered I was not disappointed at all, in fact I was very pleasantly surprised.
It was a lot weightier than I thought it would be, and I could see the quality was higher than my sceptical self was expecting.
The watch strap is thick and made from good quality brown leather, and the watch itself looks well made and stylish. It has accents of blue on the face, although this is nowhere near as ostentatious as it might sound!
The watch has a minute and second counter. It also has a sun and moon display to show day and night in case you’re easily confused.
The face is rounded (bevelled). This means you can’t glance at it from an angle; to read the time you have to look straight at the face. It’s lovely looking from the front, but the back is a work of art. You can see the insides and its more than 110 individual intricately moving parts. It’s very classy.
The watch definitely looks the part, but obviously the key function of a watch is to accurately keep time.
The Globenfeld Automatic Watch is one of those clever ones which doesn’t have a battery. Instead, the movement of your arm and all the parts inside keep it… ticking over. It’s basically witchcraft. I won’t pretend to know what the deal is and how it works, but it does, and it keeps time well.
My husband is very pleased, and better still, on time.
We received the Globenfeld Limited Edition Antique Blue Steel Men’s Automatic Watch free for review, but all words are my own.

It’s also available in Antique Rose if that’s more your thing:
