To help your wrist find its Mrs or Mr Right, we matched personality traits with watches that work the best with them. So, if you are the one to wear your heart on your wrist, read on
The forever classy
If you are the kind of woman that Grace Kelly would tip her hat to, the timeless classic is for you. Wear it with a clean cut suit (Stella McCartney or Victoria Beckham) or a no-nonsense dress to bring out its spirit of endurance.
Pieces we recommend | Any vintage Cartier, Oval Cocktail Watch by Tiffany & Co., Rolex’s Lady Datejust in Everose Gold and Coach’s Classic Signature Small Bracelet Watch are our picks.
It doesn’t take a Freud to know who you are, but it certainly takes a Fendi, we say!
The boyfriend watch
Ah! You are the snatcher. You stole his heart and now you snoop around his cupboard for Herculean goodies. Well, nothing beats the touch of his wrist on yours via the big, manly dial. A big watch on a dainty wrist is a clear signal that you are fearless and ready to deal with life head on.
Pieces we recommend | Apart from looting his treasure trove, you can also choose from Victorinox’s Airboss Mach 4 Men’s Watch, Chanel’s Boyfriend Watch (M-L), Rolex Daytona and Audemars’ Piguet Royal Oak.
The golden girl
If you wish to race back in time, especially the surreal decades swinging from the 60s to the 80s, keep a gold bracelet watch handy. Luckily, there has never been a better time than now to lend your wrist the golden hue, as retro is trending, baby! In fact, the omnipresence of retro-inspired fashion on leading runways is making our heads spin.
Pieces we recommend | While grandma is the best go-to gal for all things vintage, you can also count on Bulgari’s serpenti Catene, Chanel’s rectangular-faced Premiere and Roberto Cavalli’s Gold Plated Cuff Bracelet Watch.
The leather wrap princess
There’s something about a leather watch that no gold or steel timer can take away. Its sheer irreplaceable quality defines the power you own as a woman. For the self-assured, supremely confident woman, the leather watch is a partner to match.
Pieces we recommend | Satisfy your lust for leather by choosing from among Michael Kors’ Brown Leather Studded Wrap-Watch, Tory Burch’s Double Wrap Leather Strap and Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Sally Leather Wrap Watch.
