For as long as I can remember I’ve had a thing for watches and I’ve owned and loved a few over the years… the Swatch, the Baby G, the Ice watch, a Fossil watch, a Jag watch, a Mimco watch, and my current faves that I rotate evenly, a Michael Kors watch I bought in Hawaii, and my late Nanna’s watch.
With our phones always within arm’s reach, you could argue that don’t really need to wear a watch these days, but I do feel naked when I forget to put one on. It’s just such a habit to look down at my wrist to tell the time, and it’s much easier than getting the phone out every time.
It’s also a personal and sentimental thing with each watch telling a story. Especially a heirloom. My mum has her late Father’s Gold Tiffany’s watch given to him by his employer, Bloomingdale’s when he hit a big service milestone and it’s one of her most treasured possessions. As is my Nanna’s watch to me. Knowing she wore it for all those years makes me think of her when I wear it as I go about my life, and that makes me happy.
They make such gorgeous accessories and you have to appreciate the craftsmanship, and the mechanics that goes into making them. So I thought I’d share 5 gorgeous watches from some of my fave stores…
