I haven’t worn a watch since the day I went on maternity leave to have my first son, but these sleek and lovely Italian designed Too Late watches might be just the thing to turn me. Designed to work no matter what you’re doing, whether it’s swimming, hiking, or rumbling with the kids, this watch is made to endure it all.
I really can see the kid appeal too – they don’t have to baby it during play and you don’t have to be tense about breakages. They are shock-proof and anti-scratch and work just as well under water as they do out of it. Wear more than one for a fun look if you can’t choose just one of the fifteen available colours.
They’re US$24 plus shipping – in sizes medium and large – from Too Late. Each watch comes packaged in a pretty jar – an ecologically-conscious first in the world of watches.
