3 Of The Best Watches

Yes, you can use your phone to tell the time, but there's something so characterful about a wristwatch. Wearing a watch'suggests an appreciation of?craftsmanship, and an attention to detail in how you present yourself. People notice the finer details?of your outfit, such as?a wristwatch, beautiful stitching on a jacket or interesting buttons. I wear a Push (available at BT2 and IMMA) watch every day, but I'm longing for something more classic, with a masculine leather strap and traditional face. In fact, I'd like as many watches as I have handbags (that's fewer than ten, but one for every mood or outfit). Here are three?of my favourites.

This is a gent's watch, but?I love wearing pieces?that are oversized. The textured brown leather strap is so classic and I love the modern hit of cobalt blue in the form?of the face's hands. It's a pricey item, but it's a piece for life.


Master Collection watch, Longines, €2,710 at Applebys

The graphic look of this monochrome watch really appeals to me.?It will work beautifully with smart tailoring, but will also help to dilute down the prettiness of a floral dress.


Poplooking watch, €63 at Swatch

Classic colours and a traditional'shape make for an extremely elegant piece, and at a great price. The tan leather strap?combined with?gold-plated brass face?add real warmth to the overall feel of this watch. Perfect for off-duty outfits as much as office wear.
