一個簡單的看時間動作，也該是追求生活質感中不可忽視的小細節。來自瑞典的 Daniel Wellington 手錶，戴在手腕上的是北歐的簡約質感美學。戴了這些年，該記錄我手邊這隻 Daniel Wellington St Mawes 心得。
Daniel Wellington St Mawes Review. Founded in Sweden, Daniel Wellington watch is a minimalistic piece that displays the unique Scandinavian personality. I have been wearing my Daniel Wellington St Mawes watch ever since I purchased it. I think it's time to share my review of Daniel Wellington St Mawes.
Daniel Wellington 女款 玫瑰金 St Mawes 心得
我的第一隻 Daniel Wellington 手錶是女錶玫瑰金的 St Mawes（舊名為 St Andrews ），錶面以極簡的金屬細條紋取代數字時間刻度，是看不膩的迷人簡約；手錶設計沒有秒針，讓時針和分針安安靜靜的報時。蛋殼白的錶面，乾淨俐落。直徑 36mm 的錶盤，低頭是一目瞭然的準確。
我沒有選擇 Daniel Wellington 經典的 NATO 條紋腕帶，私心更偏愛皮製質感，深沈的褐色皮革錶帶來自義大利製的牛皮，襯的玫瑰金錶面色澤更為細緻；戴了這幾年錶帶彎了成一弧圓，是屬於自己的溫度和痕跡。經典大方的設計，有時候不是在看時間，而是真的就只是在看，這隻錶。
DW官網提供全球免運，不管你住在哪裡，購買都非常方便。穿搭比較輕便時， Daniel Wellington 細膩的質感是最好的配件。例如夏日的棉、麻、或丹寧，簡單配襯手腕上的皮革錶款，讓看時間成為一種欣賞生活的品味。
Daniel Wellington St Mawes Review
My first Daniel Wellington watch is lady's Classic St Mawes in rose gold (former St Andrews). Instead of numbers, the crisp white face has markers in the form of thin gold lines. Subtle and refined, Daniel Wellington tells time in sleek fashion and design. With the size of medium-large 36mm, reading the time is easy and straightforward. For the band, I didn't choose the playful Nato straps as I personally love leather more. Paired with a rich Italian leather band, St Mawes has a really nice and natural brown leather. The leather strap givess a classic and timeless touch that works perfectly with the rose gold hue. I'm obsessed with DW's elegant and subtle design. Sometimes when I'm wearing it, I can't stop looking down. DW offers free shipping worldwide when purchasing a watch, and you don't have to go through the hassle of ordering from overseas. To me, DW watch adds a touch of class to your casual looks. For example, I like to style my DW watch with different textures such as cotton or linen clothes in summer:
Daniel Wellington 學院風
在 Daniel Wellington 愛不釋手的第一隻錶後，後來我購入了 DW 第二隻錶 Sheffield 款，同樣是 36mm 的清晰大器錶面，不同的是錶帶換為深沈的黑，錶盤則是選擇冷冽的銀色配色，整隻錶更明顯中性，維持一貫的乾淨設計，黑配銀的 Sheffield 個性較為簡約嚴肅。兩隻我都很喜歡，但是我更常佩戴的還是第一隻玫瑰金 St Mawes ，溫潤的褐色氣質依舊令我著迷。
除了輕便休閒， Daniel Wellington 皮質的沈穩和西裝外套的學院氣質相輔相成。我喜歡的 preppy style 學院感，穿上西裝外套或者有著窄窄領子的洋裝， Daniel Wellington 讓舉手投足間優雅了起來。
Daniel Wellington & Preppy Style
After my initial experience, I made my second purchased on DW lady's Classic Sheffield in silver. It's the same 36mm size, but the leather band is black. With slim silver lines marking time, the Classic Sheffield has the iconic DW classy feel in a modern way. I agree with their description in that it stands the test of time while maintaing its effortless beauty. I love both my St Mawes and Classic Sheffield very much, but I actually wear St Mawes more often as it works seamlessly with almost everything in my preppy wardrobe. As DW is basically synonymous with preppy style, the rich brown leather of St Mawes adds a touch of sophistication and goes perfectly well with all the preppy elements, such as blazers, collar dresses, loafers, and button down shirts.
