A friend of mine is looking for a watch for his Girlfriend’s birthday and as a starting point he asked for my advice: what brand of watch do I wear, what watch styles are women wearing at the moment, etc, etc. I have to admit, I have not been in the market for new a watch for sometime – I still am completely in love with my Michael Kors watch (an amazing leaving present from a previous job). However, Longines was one of the first brands that sprung to mind. They make high quality watches that are elegant and timeless (pardon the pun). This did get me thinking though, if I were to buy a watch right now, what would tempt me – gold, silver or leather strap? round or narrow face? what colour face? a minute hand? There are so many questions and too many brands, but below are some of my picks…now I just need to start saving!
Longines ‘Dolce Vita’ – Stainless steel case and bracelet with 32 Top Wesselton diamonds
Tag Heuer ‘Aquaracer Lady’- Polished steel case and bracelet, unidirectional turning bezel, white MOP dial topped with 10 Top Wesselton diamonds.
Gucci ‘Chiodo‘ – 18ct yellow case and gold bracelet with jewellery clasp and white mother-of-pearl face.
A silver and gold watch is a versatile accessory and will compliment most jewellery:
Chopard ‘Happy Sport Round Gold’ – 18ct rose gold and stainless steel case and bracelet with five floating diamonds
Black and silver is a striking mix:
Chanel ‘Première Ceramic Steel Diamonds’ – Steel case and black high-tech ceramic links with 52 diamonds (0.26ct). Also available in white/steel.
