    Daniel wellington: Are mens and women watches the same?

    Hi I'm new here and I was just wondering is there a difference between the mens classic rose gold 40 mm Oxford watch strap and the womens classic rose gold 40 mm oxford watch strap. Would it matter if I got the womens 40mm for a mens watch because they look exactly the same but the womens one is cheaper than the mens one.

    Firstly, welcome to the forums!

    Secondly, all Daniel Wellington watches are the same, because they're all horrible. Might I poison your mind with the Orient Bambino?

    You're comparing the two straps (rather than the watches), right?

    In that case it's likely the women's strap is shorter.

    Check the diameter. Watches branded as "women's" are usually a lot smaller.

    The OP said they were both 40mm

    Well it's not for me it's a gift so I was wondering if I could save a couple bucks getting the womens one instead of the mens one

    There's nothing inherently wrong or 'horrible' about a Daniel Wellington watch. If the OP likes the look of it and it tells the time then what's the problem?

    Sure, he can be made aware of alternative watches in a similar style, such as the Bambino you mentioned, or the Accurist Clerkenwell, Timex Waterbury, or any number of Seiko 5 watches (or perhaps even a Mondaine). But if he likes the look of the Daniel Wellington and is comfortable with the price then by all means go for it, it will do the job.

    DW watches are actually decent looking in my opinion. Nothing wrong ? It's a generic minimalist dress watch design. Lots of brands have this look going from affordable like Orient Bambino to Patek.

    Like it? Buy it..

    Ah, then it's probably as Brad mentioned, with the length of the strap being the key difference.

    Relax, people.

    I'm not on a crusade, I just like turning people to the dark side wherever I can. Thus the poisoning with a photo

    And while I agree that there is nothing inherently wrong about DW, I do stand by the fact that they are horrible in the sense that they are poorly made and feel extremely cheap in the hand with virtually zero QC, even taking the low price point into consideration. I'm not comparing the DW with any of the pieces in my collection, but others in it's weight class such as lower end Timex and Casios.

    But in the end, as with all threads asking for help in choosing which watch to buy, it is always up to the buyer.

    If you are trying to nitpick dollars, how about a Timex Fairfield which looks strikingly similar and will save you some dollars.
