Watch connoisseur Bani McSpedden switches to Apple Watch

Watch connoisseur Bani McSpedden on why he switched to Apple Watch:

I’m not sure whether to be happy or sad, but this little device has had a surprisingly big impact, becoming my default watch. No, it’s not a better watch, not a more intriguing watch, nor a more desirable watch than those languishing in my drawer of mechanical marvels. It’s simply a handier bit of kit.


As it happens I was in for a surprise here, too, for as a pure object the Apple Watch is frankly stunning, especially for the price. There are no rough edges. It’s a rarely tactile rectangle, wonderful to the touch like Cartier’s Ballon Bleu, a traditional watch that’s as good to touch as it is to look at. The finishing is not only superb but seamless: no gaps, no nasty edges, no gritty feel to the crown. But the real genius is the way the straps integrate with the case.

Realted: In case you missed his initial review, it's worth a quick watch - link.
