Whether you’re investing in a watch for yourself or are looking at buying one as a gift for a loved one there’s a wealth of watch styles out there to choose from. Whilst there are many trends from the 2010’s we’re (thankfully) leaving behind, a good timepiece transcends all decades! And whilst a watch can be an investment or simply an everyday staple, there are things that you should consider when choosing the right watch.
For the women who are the trendsetters, this year the nature theme is once again playing a pivotal role in our accessories. And a watch with a nod to all things natural demonstrates your style credentials.
Choose watches that feature a moon phase dial for a timeless take on the trend or opt for a watch that has a floral dial or band for a feminine and flirty touch.
The milestone moments
If this year you’re celebrating a milestone moment, a watch is a perfect gift to commemorate it. Silver wedding anniversaries are ideal for gifting a silver watch – perhaps with diamonds set within the bezel. And if you’re turning 30 a watch with a pearl face is a thoughtful – and stylish gift to receive.
Don’t forget, if you’re not buying one for yourself to drop major hints to ensure you get the one you want!
The working mum
If like me you’re balancing the work-mum-life, you’ll want a watch that looks professional but is also durable. I particularly like bracelet style watches as they can take you from boardroom to bar (or children’s ball-pit). For added glamour, why not choose a style with diamond baton hour markers?
As we keep more and more of our lives on our phone and at our fingertips, our reliance on smart-technology is ever-increasing and a smartwatch helps you stay connected – even when your phone is being used to stream hours of Peppa Pig!
Smartwatches are becoming more stylish and are the perfect investment this year if you’re looking for a watch that does more than just tell the time.
Whatever your budget, some timeless classics are truly beautiful as well as being incredibly functional. A watch is more than just a way of telling the time (that’s what phones are for!) they’re a true statement of style, whether you prefer the timeless two-tone bracelet, boyfriend style or even a smartwatch, the way you wear yours demonstrates your style and personality.
