Check out my cute Civvio Block watch

Remember the white watch trend?

I know, I know… you thought that was me… it’s actually Anna Kournikova…

Ashley Tisdale likes her horlosies wit too…


Anyway, I totally bought into that and ‘splashed’ out on a faux Chanel J12 while in Thailand last year:

Ah, we had such good time that el cheapo knock off and I; hanging out at fancy functions with local designers like Gert-Johan Coetzee: …(sort of) roughing it in the wild under the hot African sun…Things were great between White Watchy and I and then I went and ruined it all by getting drunk and jumping into a pool with my clothes on. The poor thing wasn’t water-proof and shuffled off its mortal coil. Tres tragique!  (This is the part of the story where some super sad Snow Patrol song starts playing in the background… cut to a montage of me crying in the corner at various events sans Mr W…)

Anyway, I’m now happy to say I own a white watch once more thanks to the sweet peeps at Civvio. They appreciated my mention of their cute bangle watch which I received in a goodie bag at the Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek party and thought to send me one of their larger ‘block watches’:

It’s almost too big for my teensy wrist but ag wat…

Aside from having a cute Star Wars kind of vibe, it’s made from soft silicone-type material so it feels uber-comfy on your wrist. It also functions as a stop watch so I’m going to wear it when I hit up the Sea Point prom for a run. (Before I was timing myself by running along with my phone with hand. Super sad, I know…)

Civvio were also kind enough to send my boyfriend a watch too, a ‘manly’ black one. As his wrist is way bigger than mine I think it looks really good on him.

If you want a Civvio watch too pop into Total Sports, Sportsman’s Warehouse or Due South. They’re available in several colours and cost a mere R149!I’ve spotted a few hipster kids running amok with them in Kloof street…

Love, love

  1. They are too beautiful for words. I think I will get one in every colour. Maybe wear them all at the same time. And I refuse to pay only R149 for them, they are worth so much more… Thank you Leigh, for introducing me to this awesome product. You rock!

  2. Haha can’t believe it i bought the same “Chanel” watch while in Thailand last year and I am so sad to say that one of the little “diamonds” fell off! 🙁 So its sitting in my draw feeling sorry for itself! 😉

    1. I’m going to see if taking him to a watch shop will help. Kinda hoping a new battery might sort him out. So sad re his ‘death’; that watch got me so many compliments.
