You know you’ve bought the perfect Christmas gift when you can’t wait for it to arrive! If you or somebody you know has been on the lookout for a new watch lately (or indeed if you know somebody who could really do with one), here’s something for you. Just in time for Christmas and with 15% off using the cheeky discount code below!
I’m so excited to be teaming up with Capitola for this blog post. Inspired by the captivating namesake coastal town in Santa Cruz, California, ‘Capitola’ was formed by two sisters who were growing frustrated with the high price margins of the fashion accessory industry. They wanted to bring simple, minimal and beautiful watches to the wider market, at more accessible price points.
Designing premium-presented watches made with the best materials, Capitola has created a series of simply stunning pieces, made with masculine and feminine styles in mind. You can choose a watch from four collections: Mesh, Shiny, Velvet and Leather. What’s more, though, if you’d love to switch things up without having to buy a new watch every time you fancy a change, just choose a new band! They’re easily interchangeable for a new look every day.
Since I’m on my way to building a capsule wardrobe, curated only with the clothing items I love, being able to switch out my watch bands seems like a sneaky cheat way to dress up, or down, an outfit and complete a wholly different look, just from the accessory on my wrist.
For my first time choosing a Capitola timepiece, I picked the Gold Rose Grey watch*, from the velvet strap collection. I’ve been looking for an affordable watch in this style for such a long time, so I was glad to find one at last that didn’t cost me upwards of £80.
I love the minimal face and the lightweight feel. I’m sure we can all agree that a good watch shouldn’t get in the way of our daily activity, and this is especially beneficial for me if I’m writing and I need to see my watch face at a quick glance.
All Capitola products happily cost from €49-€64 / £44-£57 / USD$56-$73, which I feel is the perfect range for quality watches at prices that are much kinder to our wallets! Even better, 2% of the profits made by purchases from each collection goes to a named charity with their own specific cause. I always love supporting entrepreneurs and through their dedication and donation efforts, Capitola really are on the mission to make a difference.
As if that wasn’t enough, Capitola have kindly allowed me to set up a special discount code for my followers to use when making a purchase with them.
For 15% off your order with Capitola, just use the code ‘GEMMA15’ at the checkout of their online store!
Thank you so much to the lovely team at Capitola for getting in touch and introducing me to the brand. Their message perfectly captures what I’m trying to achieve in everyday life, so I can’t wait to build my collection and I hope some lucky people out there find a Capitola watch under the tree this Christmas!
