Buy-of-the-Week: Style in Time
What it is
Classic Wrist Watch
Why I bought it
When I was in third grade, I got a Mickey Mouse wrist watch with a red adjustable band for Christmas. I was proud to wear it and I've been wearing watches ever since.
Cell phones have reduced the need for a wrist watch. But, Cell phones are tacky when at a luncheon or business meeting. Yet, a wrist watch is acceptable and tells quite a bit about a person's style and eye for detail.
There are so many styles and options available, one could collect watches like some collect shoes. But, if you've not worn a watch and are considering purchasing one, I would lead you to a classic leather strap watch of black or brown. I wear my black leather strap watch almost daily. In the summer time, I like to lighten the look with a cognac brown option.
Wear & Pair
They look great with denim but, they also wear well with suiting or a dress. The only place I would avoid wearing a leather strap watch, is to a formal affair. In that case, I would go without my watch and keep a time piece (Cell phone) in my clutch purse.
prices are all over the board. Target has some excellent watches that have "the look." But, like designer purses, you can pay a pretty penny for a designer watch.
I love watches and wear mine almost every day! It's an easy way to accessorize.
