Originally developed for military men sent to fight in the trenches of World War I, the wristwatch has been a fashion staple, not to mention a status symbol, for a century. Though it’s no longer our main timekeeper (we’ve got phones for that!), the watch is making a comeback as a glamorous heirloom, meant to be cherished and lovingly passed on through the generations. So if your style is more classic than high-tech, invest in a one-of-a-kind timepiece that has a story to tell. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite styles and some tips on how to make the most of this stunning investment.
Make the Most of Your Timepiece
If you’re a woman who loves a bold piece of arm candy, consider a thick-strapped masculine watch. Though women’s styles were once limited to watches with thin, dainty straps, modern-day watch fashion is all about a generously sized face and strap.
While the right watch can stand alone as the only ornament your wrist needs, it also looks great layered with a bangle or two. Wearing one or two other pieces of jewelry on the same hand will draw attention to your wrist without overwhelming your outfit.
With the holiday season around the corner, the vintage watch can be the perfect one-of-a-kind gift for a very special loved one. Who wouldn’t want to find a top-tier timepiece under the tree?
