Filed Under:

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

Go Masculine
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.

Layer On
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.

Gift It
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?

    sure looks like real fur on this person. Do you support cruelty to animals? Because every time you feature real fur, you’re saying it’s okay.

    I find it ridiculous that the caption reads “Timeless Heirloom that will Never go out of style” – when along with the watch you picture a fur. Fur makes you ugly on the inside and out and has been out of fashion since consumers have become educated on its heinous cruelty. You might as well have pictured the watch with someone drinking and driving, the watch with someone smoking on an airplane or the watch with someone texting and driving. Really One Kings Lane – catch up with modern ethics.

      I own several very fake furs that are so real, I’ve received many ugly comments from people like you. I don’t mind though – it just goes to show how many people make assumptions before they find out the real story. How sad.

      • Jeanne McGlenister says:

        If it was fake it should have been described as fake in the description or comments. Clearly a sensitive subject which requires elaboration. It would be nice to hear from one kings lane, not from garden goddess. By the way, if you were not so self-absorbed you would be delighted that people are expressing concern regarding whether your fur was faux. If that happened to me I would be thrilled. How very sad for you.
