HATE 2 LOVE
Love and hate are separated by a really thin layer, and here comes Hate 2 Love (SOUB185). Falling from the wrong person is a big issue, and dark as the mood that it brings, the dial of this watch is black. In daytime it seems to shout "I hate to love you" and in night hours the sentence changes in a more hopeful "I love you" glowing in the dark.
