Time After Time


This season, the statement wristwatch takes center stage.

By Emily L. Foley

Blur the lines between keeping a schedule and accessorizing with stunning timepieces suitable for any taste or occasion. From classic silhouettes updated with the precious metal of the season—rose gold—to styles that are miniature works of art, each of these watches makes a very distinct statement. And since a watch says a lot about a person, it’s important to choose a design that truly speaks to your style aesthetic—which just might change every day of the week. Let your wrist accoutrements lead the way on a daily style parade.
