Question:

“I got an e-mail that your Watch Fair was coming up and I’ve wanted a nice watch for a while now but I’m not sure which one is right for me. I’d like something that is more fashion forward. What would you recommend?”

-Barbara L. | Chicago, IL

Amy’s Answer:

Thanks for your question, Barbara! A great timepiece is the perfect balance of form and function. When you purchase a quality timepiece, it is a great investment because they’re versatile and one of the most worn accessories. I understand your inquiry because there are so many great options out there with different features. Luckily at Wixon, we carry the top Swiss watch brands and have an incredible selection. Here are a few of my favorites that I think you’ll enjoy too!

MORE THAN BASIC BLACK

The fashion world loves black, but a black watch can be boring. Parmigiani Fleurier’s Kalpa Piccola line of ladies watches is sweet, sexy and sassy all at once. It’s for those who dare to be different!

BIGGER IS BETTER

The “borrowed from the boys” look is a hot trend for women, especially when it comes to watches. The Panerai Radiomir is a legendary timepiece that embraces that look. With a 42mm case size, it’s large enough to be bold without weighing you down.

KISS FROM A ROSE GOLD

Not sure if you look better in yellow gold or white gold? Try rose gold! An elegant piece like this Patek Philippe Ladies Nautilus looks stylish for either day or night. The neutral color makes it easy to pair with any fashion trend.

MIX UP THE METALS

While pairing gold and silver together used to be a fashion faux-pas, this season the metal combo is one of the hottest fashion trends. Get the look with this Jaeger-Le-Coultre Grande Reverso Lady Ultra Thin in steel and 18 karat rose gold.

ADD A FEMININE TOUCH

The menswear trend has long been in vogue, but this fall femininity is making a strong comeback. From pretty swingy skirts to ladylike leather, it’s all about embracing the softer side in subtle ways. It’s the perfect time to add this Baume & Mercier Linea which features mother of pearl decorated with diamonds to your collection.
