REVIEW: Vivienne Westwood Orb (take 2)



And today, we come to the final Vivienne Westwood model that we have on hand for review – the Orb.  Yes, we did show you an Orb last week, and this one is from the same family (just compare the case designs).

This Orb goes by the model number VV006GYBK, and shares some similarities with the earlier one (case design and size, charm hanging off the case), but really presents a different look.  For one, you lose the heart motif.  Instead, you have a subtle lace pattern showing up on the grey dial, which also carries over onto the hand design (well done, in my opinion).

Off-setting that, however, is the ring of crystals surrounding the dial.  While this adds a bit of sparkle/flash to the watch, this is something I am not particularly a fan of (then again, I’m not the target market for this watch).  Complementing the shine of the bezel is the croc-embossedpatent leather strap, which my wife did note matched her shoes quite well.

As far as hard specs go, you’ll find a quartz movement inside the 32mm steel case (9mm thick), and it carries a surprising (for this segment) water resistance rating of 50 meters.  Of the three ladies Vivienne Westwood models we’ve shown, this is probably the one I’d be most likely to buy for my wife – if it weren’t for the lace pattern on the dial that she didn’t care for.

Well, that, and the price – which seems to be right around the same $325 mark as the other Orb we showed you.  Of course, if you don’t mind the “bling”, and want it on a dressier piece, this could be the one for you.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
