Watch out! All the coolest girls wear men's timepieces, doncha know. Don't know where to start? Read THIS.
What’s your most prized possession? Mine is my precious darling children… Nah, not really, it’s actually my vintage men’s watch from Swiss heritage brand, Longines. It’s slim but undeniably masculine, très, très chic and almost everyone I meet comments on it. It’s also very special – I inherited it from my lovely dad so wearing it makes me feel connected to him on a daily basis.
There’s something cool, louche and slightly unexpected about a men’s watch on a woman’s wrist. In you’re currently in the market for a new timepiece, do take a peek at the gentlemen’s section, especially if you’re not a fan of the pretty, fussy, ornate styles that are so often marketed at women. (The same advice goes for straw hats by the way – I bought a simple, classic one last week from the men’s department as the women’s ones were all peppered with feathers, sequins and garish ribbons.)
Anyway this has all come to mind because I spotted that Biagio the Jeweller (in Thame, Bicester and online) currently has a whopping 30 percent off men’s watches in its sale – which is clearly a sign from the gods that you need some new wrist candy, right?
Anything by Gucci never goes out of style obvs – this black beauty is £581, down from £830.
