Something interesting came to my attention and that is project 1:Face. 1:Face is a brand of watch that is tied to many charitable projects:
"1:Face supports nine causes; cancer, hunger, breast cancer, clean water, disaster relief, environment, AIDS, education, and animal rights, and have partnered with different charities to bring global change. Each cause has a specific metric that tells you exactly what your purchase does. From building wells to providing a year of education, 1:Face is committed to bringing about change, worldwide."
Before I got contacted by people from 1:Face, I've never heard of this brand and what it does so once I learned more about I was more than happy to write a review and spread the word. I chose black watch which represents cancer. With purchase of this watch, 8 cancer patients get support. I chose cancer because it has affected my family and it's so widespread that it definitely needs as much attention as possible.
The watch arrived in a plastic box with paper inserts corresponding with the charity project the colour of the watch represents. The watch has a large, mirror-like clock face with a small 1:Face logo in the bottom right corner. The wrist band is made of matte rubbery material so it's not slippery and the watch is water resistant as well. The watch has super shiny and mirror face at most times and the time can be viewed by pressing a button on the side of the watch.
The last photo was kind of an accident when the camera focused on the reflection on the watch but I love the resulting picture so much I wanted to share it with you! Also just in case you're wondering - I will do a separate post about the nail art I'm wearing. The two rings on my right hand are from Astrid & Miyu.
As you can see my hands are quite thin so having such large watch was very unusual for me. I can however imagine it paired up with sportswear or some other casual wear. It's very modern and trendy unisex watch and the fact that it supports a charitable cause makes it even better. At $40 each you really can't go wrong - you get a cool watch and help make the world a better place.
1:Face watches are available at www.1face.com and there are 9 colours/styles available, supporting the 9 selected causes. Newly there is also a $99 Touchscreen 1:Face watch that supports all causes. The watch is constructed with the iPhone alloy metal frame attached to a polycarbonate silicon band and is 5ATM waterproof.
I'm glad to have had the chance to raise awareness of this brand and I truly hope you will now go, visit their site and at least read a bit more about what they do and why.
Have a lovely day! Lucie x
