Of all the items a consumer can buy, a watch is one of the most practical accessories. But just because an item is useful, doesn’t mean that it can’t be stylish.
There are many kinds of watches available, and they vary by the size of the strap, the shape of the face, the style and type of numbers they display, the type of technology they incorporate, the materials utilized, and the amount of embellishments. Some watches are primarily designed to be eye-catching, while others are designed to focus on function over fashion.
For Autumn/Winter 2013, smaller watches have become the must-have item, replacing the chunkier-looking timepieces that have been popular in recent years. When choosing what to wear, however, you simply want to go with the most fitting accessory to complete your outfit, whether it is something from the latest designer collections or an old favorite from your jewelry box.
If you are a fan of technology, there are a number of smart watches with an impressive array of functions such as cameras, GPS, and mobile phone technology, which are stylish and highly useful. Some of these technology-focused watches can even be customized to display the functions you use the most, the time in words rather than digits, or even your name.
Sales of luxury watches have been healthy in spite of difficulties in other areas of fashion retail, perhaps because we can justify buying a watch because it is an everyday item. With some luxury brands such as Rolex, a watch made from a precious metal or inlaid with diamonds is much more of an investment and could ultimately become a family heirloom or a prized possession.
