My first reaction upon opening the box was the subtle sparkle and effortless glamour of the aesthetic. Though the face is trimmed in minute, shimmering Swarovski Crystals, the watch retains a very classy, subdued look which is perfect for adding the tiniest touch of decadence to an outfit consisting largely of denim. My second reaction was in regards to the face. Though the entire watch is comprised of a stainless steel case, bangle style link bracelet, and silvertone hands, the dial (face) is black – a juxtaposition that ups the elegance factor.
While the looks alone of the watch truly captivated me, I was hesitant that it still wouldn’t fit correctly. I was wrong. While oversized menswear watches look gorgeous, they virtually eat my wrist alive; so was not the case with the Citizen Eco-Drive Silhouette Crystal Bangle. Made with a woman’s delicate frame in mind, the watch is very dainty; and, as such, looks stunning hanging loosely (bangle-esque) around one’s wrist (mine included). I paired mine with dark wash skinny jeans, knee-high tan boots, and an oversized sweater for a holiday get-together over the weekend, and was amazed at how sparkly I felt with that single piece of jewelry – not to mention that I received countless compliments on it.
