Affordable and stylish watches aren’t all that easy to come by, so when Australian watchmaker, Bow & Stern, asked me to review one of their range, I jumped at the chance.

With a range of 30 timepieces with differing types of metals, straps and faces, there really is something for everyone.

The branding is on point, with the subtle logo with the Bow & Stern anchor at 6pm – their watches really do make any outfit from casual to smart especially when you live next to the sea as I do.

I’ve been trying out the Blue and Silver version from their Newport range, with the tan leather strap — it’s gorgeous!

It really does compliment any outfit, as seen above with a BoohooMAN cream blazer, with the sea in the background — perfect.The watch itself comes with:

  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Patented Anchor detailing
  • Scratch Proof Sapphire Crystal Glass
  • 3 Hand Swiss Quartz Movement
  • High-Quality Double Bonded and Hand Stitch Leather
  • Interchangeable Bands, allowing you to easily change your style
  • Surgical standard Stainless Steel case
  • Water Resistant (5ATM)

Yeah, they may be in Australia, but with free worldwide shipping, the other side of the world doesn’t seem so far away! Priced at just £113.27 for the Newport watch, it’s an absolute bargain for top quality craftsmanship.
