what time is it?

time to get a watch! here are my picks.

la mer's brown leather simple wrap watch ($76) has been on my wishlist for a while now. i love the classic face and the unexpected double strap. la mer also carries the simple wrap in really fun colors (i love the neon pink and the orange!) as well as a line with chains and charms. reasonable prices and customization options definitely put this line at the top of my list.

i gave my boyfriend j.crew's timex military watch ($150) for christmas and he loves it! the face has a beautiful vintage feel and you can swap out the black strap for bright solids or preppy stripes (current promotion is $30 for two straps, so why not both?!) on a whim. perfect as a gift or a way to add some androgynous appeal to your own look. (i will attest that the strap can be tightened to the size of my wrist!)
i love both of these oversized options from michael kors. i like the versatility of the resin ($225) — silver and clear go with everything! — as well as the timeless appeal of the tortoise ($250).

The first wrap one is fantastic. I am also surprisingly drawn to the resin Michael Kors one. Darn it. Now I want a new watch.

All great picks! I too like the Michael Kors.

I love the La Mer watch! and what a deal at $76-- at first glance, I thought it would have cost 5X that amount. it seems like all of my friends came back from christmas break with resin watches but I have yet to see a tortoise one until now. so cute!

Thanks for telling me about your post on the watches. I had such a difficult time deciding! I really liked the ivory resin colored one the most, since it went with my skin tone so much, but it had gold accents, and I thought it would clash with my silver wedding rings. So, I finally decided on a silver one...sort of. Haha! I actually ordered two different styles of the silver, and still can't decide which one I want more. What do you think? The MK 'White Mother of Pearl' Chronograph or the MK 'Jet Set Sport - Crystal Set' Chronograph. I have the hardest time making decisions!! I like the face on the Mother of Pearl one better, but the Jet Set has crystals that match my wedding band diamonds. Help!!
