Watch it! 5 Timely Picks

Yes, we know your cell phone keeps time.  But don’t overlook watches as a great piece of jewelry.  Switch up your watches depending on  your outfit, the occasion, or your mood.  Five picks below:


Anne Klein Women’s Silver-Tone Round Black Leather Strap Watch – $55


I love the face of this watch with its big numbers and clean lines.  There’s a bit of extra hardware connecting the face to the band, too, which gives it a harder edge.  At $55, a total steal.


 Skagen Women’s Silver Dial Mesh Bracelet Watch – $46.92

Skagen is a brand I wasn’t aware of until this past winter.  But the thin depth of the face makes it sit very flat against the wrist, and it’s a really clean, modern, minimalist look.


Michael Kors – Quartz Leather with Silver Dial Women’s Watch – $92

The only rectangle-shaped face in the bunch, this Michael Kors bauble features a beautiful cognac leather band.  This is a great look for casual, weekend wear.  Not crazy about that little MK charm hanging off the face, but I suspect a good pair of pliers is all that’s needed to pry that bad boy off.


DKNY Glitz Small Round Dial Bracelet – $115

This DKNY timepiece has just a little bit of bling around the perimeter of the face, but the rest of the watch is simple, classic and timeless.  You can wear this piece no matter the year, season, or occasion.  A great basic  watch to have in your collection.  Ships and returns free from Nordstrom’s.


Fossil Ladies’ Georgia Black Leather Watch – $95

I know Fossil is not exactly Omega or Rolex but I love almost every watch style they make.  Their aesthetic just sings to me.  This beautiful post-modern look features a thin black leather band, and rose gold detailing.


What say you?  Would you wear one of these watches?

    I’ve been looking around for a watch for a while now. I, too, generally love the look of Fossil Watches, but I really like the Anne Klein pick above, too. I may have to pull the trigger on one of the two soon…
