Yes, ‘time’ in a literal sense also counts as a gift. Make sure it’s quality time though ;)
Mother’s Day is just around the corner (Sunday 12th of May 2019 in case we forgot!). If you’ve already done the “World’s Best Mum” mug and scented candle gift combo for the fourth year running, it might be time to up your gift game a little. One of the simplest and almost guaranteed ‘they’ll love it’ gifts is a really nice watch. I’ve always loved receiving watches as gifts. A luxe or stylish watch feels like such a big deal to receive. People associate time with effort, and what a way to show you’ve put in some with a fabulous watch! Your Mum or mother-figure will appreciate the sentiment.
Welly Merck does amazing luxe swiss watches at reasonable prices, and they ship to Australia within 1-3 business days (perfect for last-minute gift shopping!). I love that these watches are made with sapphire crystal glass, making them scratch resistant, and the watch straps are completely interchangeable with a huge range of styles & finishes.
Featured here is the ‘Innovator Lyon’ 32mm watch with a 12mm white leather strap. I love the classy marble watch face paired with a rose gold, roman numeral dial. I like that this watch face is large but not too over-sized for small wrists.
Most of Welly Merck’s watches and accessories have an option for either rose gold, classic gold, silver or black. I selected the ‘Innovator Lyon’ 32mm watch face with the rose gold trim because I also have the ‘Fighter New York’ 26mm rose gold watch which is paired with a 12mm rose gold mesh strap (the same width as the Innovator watch range!). Plus I have a 12mm peach leather strap, enabling me to have 3 different straps for 2 watches, which is 6 combinations of watches for the price of two! Why not buy your mum and yourself a Welly Merck watch and occasionally swap straps with each other? It can be a fun bonding activity and you’ll both look fancy AF.
When purchasing a Welly Merck watch, take note of the watch face, its metallic finish and which watch strap width it can be paired with, and you’ve got yourself (*I mean your mum) a selection of watch styles for any outfit or occasion!
Welly Merck also offers customised engraving on the back of the watch face, a special touch to your gift to mama.

Welly Merck’s Story
Welly Merck was founded by a couple known as, Welly and Merck. Merck’s story is one of resilience and perseverance, which you can read about here and their aim was to develop something that symbolized their approach to life. The brand aligns with their personal journey, of ‘durability, simplicity, and tireless striving.’ These products were developed for those who want to make a statement. And the Welly Merck brand ‘seeks to align with people who, like the founders, never stop striving, never stop working hard, and who face obstacles with determination and class.’
