Macy’s Sale Watches
Early in the week, Macy’s tempted us with bargain winter coats. Now they’re having a watch sale, where select timepieces are 20% off, and some are an additional 10% off with the code SHINE at checkout. This may not seem like a huge discount, but for watches, which can be pretty spendy depending on brand and style, the savings can really add up. Free shipping with $99 purchase.
Silver Tone Watches
If you’re not familiar with the brand Bulova (the first two watches at left), prepare to fall in love. This luxury brand has been making great timepieces for over a hundred years. The sub-brand Caravelle offers consumers similar beauty and quality at a more affordable price. The Caravelle by Bulova Watch, Women’s Crystal Accented Bracelet – $86.39 ($119.99) features a textured band and beautiful crystal detailing. The Bulova Watch, Women’s Stainless Steel Bangle Bracelet – $143.28 ($199) is sleek and modern, with hard edges and a black dial. A similar watch, the Citizen Watch, Women’s Eco-Drive Stainless Steel Bracelet – $162 ($225) features a softer, more minimal look. Finally, one of my favorite brands for their effortless chic, the Fossil Watch, Women’s Sylvia Stainless Steel Bracelet – $71.49 ($95) has a reddish-brown dial and simple detailing around the face and band.
Leather Strap Watches
Though I’ve preferred a metal strap on my watches in the past, lately I’ve been loving the texture and color of leather. The Caravelle by Bulova Watch, Women’s Black Croc Embossed Leather Strap – $64.79 ($89.99) is a conservatively-styled timepiece with roman numerals and a lovely mother of pearl dial. The Fossil Watch, Women’s Georgia Dark Brown Python Print Triple Wrap Leather Strap – $86.29 ($115) is a great example of Fossil’s on-trend styling. This watch incorporates the multiple-wrap strap that’s been so popular in the last year on bracelets. The Citizen Watch, Women’s Eco-Drive Black Leather Strap – $133.20 ($185) has such cool detailing on the face–skinny pinstripes! Plus, a sophisticated face shape and basic black band. This DKNY Watch, Women’s Chronograph White Leather Strap – $146.49 ($195) is a standout for its white leather band, rose-gold tone case, silver-tone bezel, and brown dial. Beautiful and feminine.
Mixed Metal Tones Watches
Mixed metal jewelry is great to have in your collection because it can be worn with a variety of other jewelry, and it can also connect different pieces. This AK Anne Klein Watch, Women’s Brown Ceramic and Rose Gold Tone Bracelet – $93.99 ($125) has a really unique look–mother of pearl dial, rose-gold and brown strap, and brown Swarovski crystal detailing. Another bold look is the Citizen Watch, Women’s Drive from Citizen Eco-Drive Two-Tone Stainless Steel Bracelet – $212.40 ($295). This watch combines rose-gold tone and silver tone metals. A watch that is entirely yellow gold is really hard to pull off without looking cheesy. A good solution is picking a timepiece that combines silver with the gold, like this Caravelle by Bulova Watch, Women’s Stainless Steel Bracelet – $86.39 ($119.99). The Seiko Watch, Women’s Two Tone Bracelet – $162 ($225) accomplishes the same thing, with a more restrained look.
When ordering, be sure to check if your particular watch is eligible for an extra 10% off with code SHINE at checkout.
