I love watches even though I don't own many. I seem to have acquired a taste for very pricey time-tellers and have tried numerous times to find one that is reasonable.
I believe that a watch makes a statement and says a lot about who you are.
There are so many styles, colors and sizes that anyone can find one to fit their needs. With that said, I don't think that watches have to be expensive to look well, it's how you wear it and if it suits you.
I am a minimalist when it comes to accessories so I almost always wear a watch. I have a couple for daytime only and a couple for when I go out, and only one of them I can wear on any occasion.
I do feel like that's enough, but I truly enjoy looking at watches when I'm at Nordstrom (they have a great selection at various price points).
I got this watch as a gift last year (in black) from Nordstrom for my birthday.
I loved how different it looked, a classic look with an edgy feel. It is scratch resistant and water resistant up to 100 feet.
It is slightly on the heavier side since it's ceramic, but you get use to it. I also have very small wrists so it sometimes seems impossible to find a watch that doesn't look like costume jewelry.
I think I love it even more now for some reason and haven't found another one that I would consider getting since.
These are available at emporioarmani.com and at various retailers, but my watch is sold out at Nordstrom for now.
You can find the white one on different websites for sale, but there are usually shipping and handling costs.
I can only find the black one on their website. They have other ceramic styled watches as well and all look really nice. The watches retail anywhere from $445 to $545.
Do you think $500 is reasonable for a watch? I guess compared to a Chanel ceramic watch I've been eyeing for $4,000 I'd say this is a steal!
