Girls, I need your help I'm looking to update my watch. But I have no idea what to buy. Which watch do you wear? Any watches you like/want? Which brands are good? Which ones should I avoid?
Please post pictures so I can get an idea.
I'd say, figure out what you want in terms of:
- Versatility (Everyday vs. Dress vs. Business)
- Dependability (Winding vs. Self-Winding/Automatic vs. Battery)
Once you've got that it should narrow down options well. Then it's all about aesthetics.
Brands with good reliability/maintenance in addition to the ones I own: Seiko, Timex, Citizen, Tissot
Brands with relatively poor reliability IME: Cartier (hate to say it, they're beautiful watches), Movado
My main concern is I don't want to be like I'm following trends because I know MK watches are in right now. But I can't help it I do actually like them and they're really cheap. But if they're made poorly or whatever I won't buy.
So out of MK, Burberry, DKNY, Marc JAcob. Which one is better to buy? Which brand is more prestigious?
Any other brand suggestion? Preferably under £5000. But without diamonds and crystals and all that. For a silver bracelet.
P.s. I always thought Cartier watches were good. I so wanted Cartier to make a similar watch to MK but they don't just because I thought the brand was good and in my budget.
I love Cartier watches also! I had been planning to buy the Tank Francaise in medium size, but I went a little crazy and bought a Rolex Datejust instead
I would like to kindly suggest perhaps checking out Movado watches if you like a minimalist look and clean lines. You mentioned you would like a watch that looks like a bracelet, and I've seen a few pretty ones from Movado! I have the one in the first picture, and it's definitely an elegant looking watch.
@classichic How do you deal with the size of watches such as above and mentioned?
I want a chic watch to wear everyday so today I went to the jeweller. He suggested a few rectangular watches but they were too plain for my taste. Other than that he couldn't help me because most watches were way too big for my arm (not speaking about the bracelet but the size of the face of the watch).
I really like Hamilton watches, does anyone own one? And I love the style of the Cartier Tank watch but I just can't afford them. Does anyone know a similar but not too plain rectangular watch?
