Would you be happy with just one pair of shoes? How about just one purse? Could you live with just one shade of lipstick? We didn’t think so. So why be happy with just one watch? Your timepiece is just as important as any other fashion accessory. It conveys mood, personality, and style. Check out these gorgeous models from the most prestigious luxury watchmakers in the world.
Classic by Chopard
When you’re just starting your watch wardrobe, you’ll need a classic. A basic wristwatch can go with pretty much anything. The Classic by Chopard is perfect. It keeps things simple yet elegant with white gold, a round face, Roman numerals, and a black leather band. This is the foundation of any wristwatch collection.
Maestro by Raymond Weil
The next stop on your watch-shopping spree should be for a piece that goes great with casual wear. This watch brings a dash of gorgeous to the everyday. Steel on blue leather makes the Maestro perfect for those days when nothing but jeans will do. But don’t be fooled. Its 68 diamonds prove that the Maestro is a truly worthy fashion statement.
The Elegant Collection by Longines
On the opposite end of the casual-dressy spectrum is the Elegant Collection. An Elegant puts a feminine spin on traditional with its pink gold cap and pink gold with stainless steel band. This beauty comes with a black, white, or mother-of-pearl face.
Monaco by Tag Heuer
Need to look smart and professional? Monaco is just right for a job interview or a meeting with a client. The square face tells everyone that you are all business. The brown leather band has a responsive feel that is warmer and softer than black or metal.
Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “Galapagos Islands” by IWC
An active woman needs a timepiece that works—and plays—just as hard as she does. The Aquatimer Chronograph’s matte black rubber and stainless steel take the sports watch to new heights. Perfect for the lady athlete, this watch (with a stopwatch) can keep up with you, even when you go 300 meters underwater.
Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater by Jaeger Lecoultre
A natural beauty, the Rendez-Vous has a face of dainty, diamond ivy leaves with ivy tendrils for numerals. This watch is a perfect blend of fashion and love of the environment. The longer you wear it, the more it will grow on you.
Constellation Quartz by Omega
Imagination, romance, and dreams—that’s what the Constellation Quartz is made of. A blue face sprinkled with white gold stars and encircled in diamonds expresses a youthful mindset. When you have this cool, smooth, stainless steel bracelet, what more could you wish for?
The Oyster Perpetual Datejust by Rolex
Bring out your inner princess with this playful piece. The Oyster Perpetual Datejust is fun and flirty with a pink face of flowers and stars. You get your choice of steel, gold, or a combination band.
Crash by Cartier
Crash must have come straight from Salvador Dali’s famous painting, The Persistence of Memory. Every fashion watch collection needs a piece with a one-of-a-kind personality. This asymmetrical piece of wrist art is just one example of the awesome styles and unique flavors out there that you can adopt as your own.
Calatrava by Patek Philippe
You may not attend a black-tie affair every day, but when you want true class, wrap your wrist with a sleek, sophisticated, and elegant timepiece. The Calatrava’s gold hour markers contrast the black lacquered dial, and chic baguette diamonds embrace its face. You’ll be ready for the most formal of occasions with a watch like this.
Although top watch brands may not fit in your budget, they give you a free education in watch-collection 101. Look for good imitations, or save up and splurge on the real thing. Unlike the skirt that’s in today and out tomorrow, a well-chosen watch will always be in fashion. It can last a lifetime and even get you some upgrade dollars if you decide to sell it later, especially if you’re looking to cash in on a name-brand watch like Patek Philippe. So put on those new shoes and grab that designer purse. It’s shopping time!
