It was only a couple of days ago I blogged a Benetton by Bulova watch, but today is the first part of a blog from the United Colors of Benetton range.
The Benetton brand started in 1965 producing bright colourful clothing. The United Colors line of products began in the 80s, and is probably the most known range of products. As part of the line, they produced watches which seem to follow the colourful and fashionable theme.
Today's watch is definitely bright and colourful. It has a wide strap/cuff strap design in a bright yellow patent leather (but back of the leather is soft). The strap fastens with a clip which just presses on the strap making it adjustable to any size without the limitation of holes or notches.
The watch is a rectangular 3 hand dial design in a matching colour. It runs with a quartz movement, unusually with the crown at the 12 o'clock position.
There is also another unusual feature to this watch, and it is the reason for this being a 'part 1'. To find out what, you'll need to pop back for part 2 tomorrow!
