Do you like accessories that are feminine, but not too girlie? Do you enjoy jewelry that is sleek and classy without the bling on it? Do you desire an accent that is both beautiful and practical? Then perhaps the Gucci Marina Chain Women’s Bangle Watch will be your next personal adornment purchase.

You will see that this designer timepiece pleases the eye with its Stainless Steel material. Its highly polished Stainless Steel bezel, case, and bracelet catch the light in a most attractive way. The bracelet is 7 in (17.8 cm) long, sizable, and is secured with a Jewelry Clasp. The Scratch Resistant crystal is made of Sapphire, protecting the black dial underneath. The silver toned hands, and luminous Gucci logo at 12 o’clock, contrast nicely against the black dial. The watch is powered by a Quartz battery screwed inside the 1.26 in (32mm) diameter case-back with actual screws. Other notable features of this bracelet watch are the push-in crown and the 99 feet (30 meter) water resistance.

The YA121301 Gucci Marina Chain Women’s Bangle Watch will also catch your eye when it comes to quality and a safe spend, by not only being made in Switzerland, the homeland of  good watches, but also by coming with a 24 month warranty. This watch retails differently depending on where you buy it from; it can go anywhere from $494- $795.

Pros: 24 month warranty, 30 meter water resistance, Swiss made, top quality Quartz battery, not as expensive as many other designer watches, its silver and black color scheme make it easy to match with other jewelry and wear everyday.

Cons: I personally, am not a fan of watches with a metal band/ bracelet. It’s always cold when you put it on, and takes awhile to warm up. It is also hard to tell what the exact time is on this watch. There are no notches along the dial that tell you the minutes, or even the hours. You are more of estimating time, then actually telling it.

So, is this watch the right fit for you? If you are looking for a lustrous yet, simple women’s watch that is designer, but won’t break the bank, this may be for you. Even better if you are looking more for a piece of jewelry and less for an actual timepiece this may be for you. There are several variations to the YA121301 in the Gucci Marina Chain Women’s Bangle Watch collection. They go from being the exact same watch with a white Mother of Pearl dial instead of black, to having diamonds in the dial, or along the case. The most expensive version of this watch goes up to $1,590 with two lines of tiny diamonds horizontally placed on the case.
