 “I love my C1rcuit watches. Everything I seem to do in life has a time or deadline against it, so I need a watch which is light, easy to read and stylish. The last thing I need when I need to be somewhere or doing something at a given time is staring at a fussy watch face that is unreadable. C1rcuit watches are perfect: the face is clear, easy to read, and have enough colour on them to draw your attention to what matters, when it matters.”
