I found another Christmas surprise for mom - a "bangle" wrist watch

Purely by accident, I found the perfect gift for my mom - a "bangle" wristwatch.   This is not just a simple bangle.  The watch band is made of two metal pieces that attach to the watch with hinges so they open up wide which will allow mom to put the watch over her wrists with ease. 

I'm so excited to find this for her.  She's gone through several watches and it's always hard to find one with a face that's medium sized yet has big numbers so she can easily see it.   I really think she'll be pleased.    Here are some photos that show the watch; the watch with the hinges in the normal position and the hinges spread apart a little. 

If anyone needs such a watch for a male, there are some very basic designs that would be suitable for a man - plain black watch bands, plain white faces and plain black numbers.   I found this one at Kohls - and it was ON SALE!!

Medium sized watch face with large numbers at all hours not just 3, 6, 9 & 12.

The watch when hinges are "closed" or not extended.

This demonstrates how the hinges open, this is only about 2/3 of the possible width. This permits Mom to open it herself and put it over her wrist. It sort of makes it a flexible size too since her wrist can swell to 2-3 times normal size due to arthritis.
