For someone who has a thing about being punctual you’d probably find it strange that I don’t own a watch. I’ve just never found one that I love that’s actually an affordable price. I was however, pleased to hear that I’m not alone in this. In fact Awemix watches was set up to solve this problem and do a bit of good at the same time. Brother and sister Michael and Sandy Niman have teamed up to sell stylish, affordable watches that donate 20% from every £20 watch sold. They are currently supporting two rather fine charities that are based in Norfolk.
I have the breast cancer watch which supports local charity Keeping a Breast. They support women either with breast cancer the BRCA gene who are considering or undergoing breast reconstruction. They are a fantastic charity who I mentioned many times before. The work they do is incredible. (Find out more.) I love how bold and funky the design is, the woman on the face of the watch also serves as a reminder to check yourself. The watch is also really comfortable to wear and not at all restrictive.
Awemix watches are also supporting the Norfolk Wildlife Trust who look after over 50 nature reserves and various protected sites in the county. They work hard to support a variety of living landscapes for locals and tourists to enjoy responsibly. The nature watch is a royal blue colour with brightly coloured origami animals. Perfect for all of the animal lovers out there!
My Awemix watch ticks all of the boxes, it’s comfortable, functional, it looks pretty cool and affordable at £20. It’s nice to know that I’m supporting both a charity and a local start-up at the time. The watch is also a good conversation starter, I’ve had many people ask about the design who all loved the idea behind it. After all the best promotion for both the charities and Awemix themselves is word of mouth!
Another cool thing about Awemix watches is that they let the community of followers decide which charities to support. It’s rather refreshing to hear of company that pays so much attention to and values their customers thoughts and opinions. If you fancy picking up yourself up some new arm candy and supporting a good cause at the same time, head over to their website.
P.S I’m currently running a giveaway on instagram to win your own watch, so hop on over there now!
