Timepiece trends with the tendency to reemerge may just be worth the investment...if you let it represent you.
They say you tell as much about a man by his watch and shoes you can living with him for years. Men identify with timepieces, carefully chosen as the perfect, and possibly only, visible representation of who they are. For women, a watch is slightly different. While some female timepiece devotees also choose their selection carefully and meticulously, a watch often comes off as not much more than another accessory. However, a truly great timepiece can both spice up an outfit or provide a touch of class to a more casual ensemble. When carefully selected, it can represent more than a part of your outfit. Take note from the gentlemen because it can represent you.
Most timepiece purchasers err on the side of caution when making an investment for their wrists. While traditionally, plain seems to match everything. Choosing an ordinary watch isn’t entirely necessary. Who are you? What do you like to do? If you love to sail, you want something water resistant, durable and comfortable. If you love fashion, you want something statement but transparent. If you are preppy and fashionable, then Hermes but in a different color, like rose quartz. And the fashionistas can go a little bit farther on the limb. Sure you aren’t going to spend $25K on a JACOB & CO. watch with a diamond skull and bones face, but you might purchase that Gucci stainless steel watch with satin band in light pink instead of white. Right?
So whether making a true investment or purchasing a Michael Kors white watch for summer, make sure your choice reflects who you represent. Not what your friend got or what’s “practical” or what your mom suggested to your husband. You. You. You.
