Please could you help me find a watch?

I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking for, which doesn't help.

I have a chunky silver bracelet-style watch but stopped wearing it when I had DS1 because I was worried that the hard metal strap would hurt him, or at least be uncomfortable for him.

I'd like to start wearing a watch again, but now I find my bracelet watch is too "harsh" for the person I've become in the intervening years.

I'm looking for something softer, both physically and stylistically. Ideally splash proof. And suitable to wear in a professional environment.

Budget is up to around £250.

Any suggestions most appreciated! Thank you.

Have you taken a look at the Watch Shop online?

They have some lovely classic watches:

There is bound to be something on that site that catches your eye and is in budget.

I have had lots of expensive watches in the past and they sit in my drawer. Tbh, what i love is wearing a different watch like an accessory. Makes me feel good. I bought a few from Next. I have had lovely comments about them. They are cheap and you can ring the changes. They are quite robustly made too.

I chose this one in the end, but with a black leather strap and silver dial.
