As an avid swimmer, my mom's main concern when it comes to her jewelry is water-resistance. The Invicta 0488 Angel Collection Cubic Zirconia Accented Watch for Women was listed under the "Pro Diver" section -- making it resistant in up to 330 feet of wet depth. My mom is also a retired florist with a passion for roses, which was really the buying point of this Mother's Day gift -- mainly because the dial has a flowery accent, made out of gemstones. The little golden hands look like the petals of a beautiful floral arrangement.
I chose the gold as the ideal choice for her cocoa-colored skin-tone, and she really enjoys the date feature. As someone who still writes the occasional check at the grocery store, she feels secure in knowing that her watch will tell her the correct date to save her the trouble of asking a confused cashier.
While I'm glad my mom was pleased with the Invicta 0488 Angel Collection Cubic Zirconia Accented Watch for Women, I was enamored with the polyurethane band. It has the appearance and feel of supple leather -- a definite plus as a gift for a woman who has extremely sensitive skin. This is something I know my mom can cherish and appreciate throughout the years of her life.
