My daughter wants an Ice-Watch for her birthday but she has an allergy to nickel. a lot of watches use this in the backs or straps. I have taken a look at the one she wants (http://www.joshuajamesjewellery.co.uk/products/details/20490.html) but im not sure and its an awful lot of money to spend on something she may not be able to wear. has anyone got any advice on what I should do or if the backs of these watches are plastic ?
I have the same thing and haven't been able to wear a watch for years, as you say most of them have metal backs/straps. Nail varnish has never really worked for me though might for some people. Also be aware that the allergy can 'spread' - it was watches/ear-rings/necklaces as a teenager, glasses started to cause a reaction in my late 30's and by mid-40's even belt buckles set it off
If it was my DD I would be very reluctant to spend that much on something that will lie in a drawer after a few days wear - but I am Mean Mummy
