It’s time (get it) for another two minute review, this one is for the Michael Grant London Carnaby Watch.
This is taken from the Michael Grant London website:
“At the age of eighteen, Michael Grant founded a leading product development business in the heart of London in 1978 and rapidly became a creative force designing and supplying branded product to world -renowned institutions such as Harrods and Liberty of London including the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace. Within only a few years, Michael’s well established influence on bespoke design in the UK caught the attention of department stores, museums and heritage sites worldwide whom, to this day still work closely with Michael to develop original products unique to them.
Michael Grant’s passion and expertise in creating bespoke designs strengthened with full force over the years, becoming aware of how important it was for individuals to have their own unique style and brand in an ever changing and competitive world. This inspired Michael to develop a watch brand to emulate the most unique city in the world – London.
Looking past what London was famed for by tourists, Michael’s sole aim was to shine a spotlight on the unexplored side of the city where the image of the classic London gentleman has been challenged in the fashion world with pioneering and unapologetic style that demands attention.
Now, in 2016, Michael Grant London has launched with an original, contemporary and high quality range of watch designs that embraces the ever-changing fashion landscape established by trend setting Londoners.
Michael Grant and his dedicated team are continually designing and developing superior quality leather goods and fashion accessories to achieve their passion of developing Michael Grant London into an influential and internationally recognised fashion brand.”

What’s in the box?
The box contains another box with the watch inside.
The watch is secure within the box.
A Closer Look
The first thing you notice when you open the box is is that the watch itself is very well packaged in its own box within the box. The watch is wrapped around a small cushion to keep it safe and secure.
The Carnaby is very light, in fact you will hardly notice it on your arm! I found it very comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time. Because it is very thin I didn’t have any problems with wearing it with different shirts.
The watch face is matt black with the watch hands and numbers in grey.
The strap is black leather and is adjustable to fit most wrists, and is easy to get on and off your wrist.
The water resistance of the Carnaby is rated at 5ATM, which means it is tested to 50 meters or 165 feet.
My only real criticism (and you could say this for most watches) is that the watch face itself is prone to fingerprints or marks, although these are very easy to rub off.
The Carnaby comes with a 24 month guarantee too.
With Christmas only a few months away, the Carnaby would make a great present for someone, and it looks great on your wrist.
The Carnaby Watch from Michael Grant London is available now priced £125.
