First of all, the pun was definitely intended in this blog post title. A watch just has a way of completing a look, even though I rarely actually use mine to tell time. I find myself checking my phone if I need to know what time it is.
I have a ladies Rolex that I received as a gift a long time ago and I literally wear it every single day. I do have a couple of other high-fashion watches, but I find myself always going back to a classic. I don't really buy a watch unless it's an investment piece because so much can go wrong with watches and you want one that will stand the test of time (again, another intended pun).
I love the look of women wearing large oversized men's watches and I wish that I could find a vintage Men's rolex or some stunning watches by Girard Perregaux that would be cheaper than finding a new one. I think that the 42mm size is perfect for the "men's watch" look. I think this is definitely what Michael Kors was going for with the popular gold watch that you see all the girls wearing these days.
I also love the look of a leather banded watch. I particularly love exotic leather bands with gold hardware. I am all about big watches right now, so I think that a huge faced watch with a brown leather band would be killer to wear all-year-round. Timex makes a great one that is both affordable and practical, all the while still looking stylish. I actually featured this watch a couple of year's ago in an old post.
Do you all have a particular watch that you wear every day or a style that you like? I always feel like my wrist is naked if I don't have a watch on. Do you feel the same way?
