A Classic Wrist: Mens’ Watch, Ladies’ Style

I have long been a fan of the menswear on women trend. Is there anything sexier than the masculine tuxedo on a woman a la Yves St. Laurent? Or a partially unbuttoned oxford as jammies?

No, no there is not.

The same holds true in watches for me. I love the look of a man’s watch on a woman’s wrist – the ying and yang of masculine and feminine. The current trend is all about large gold watches, and, while I adore Michael Kors and all of his styles, I still hold out for a touch of the throwback classics. A clean, round face and a strip of black leather (or better) that might, if you smell the wrist band, just smell like your father or grandfather.

These are a few of my favorites:

ESQ for Movado Black Croc Embossed Leather Strap
Baume & Mercier Mens Classima Watch
Tommy Hilfiger Multi-eye Leather Watch
Kenneth Cole “New York” Watch
Tag Heuer Carrera Watch
Burberry’s Gents Watch

Prefer a square face? Go Jackie Kennedy's route - the classic Cartier Tank. Exquisite.

      Cynthia, I was so happy I kept my wits! I was afraid I would be like Meg Ryan in &#ov80;Y8uࢩ2e Got Mail” and be struck dumb. I’m thinking the Harpy wishes that had happened.
