Just like the classic little black dress, a quality watch is an essential wardrobe staple. Along with bags and shoes, a watch is an accessory to finish any woman’s outfit.
Some people might ask what’s the difference between a €10 watch and a €1,000 watch, because at the end of the day they all tell the time. You can’t argue with this fact, but what you can argue is that you are buying better quality, style and ultimately a reflection of a particular lifestyle.
A designer watch is ultimately a very practical and beautiful bracelet that says, ‘I’m stylish, I value time, appreciate quality, and I notice the little things!’. If you are working in a professional space and interacting with clients daily, attention to detail can be the thing that makes you stand out.
This season on the catwalks at Paris Fashion Week, we saw a return of the heritage trend, where designers like Stella McCartney showcased their take on the trend for Autumn / Winter 2017.
Heritage style is about classic, tailored and sophisticated fashion with a twist of richness, substance and tradition.
Once worn by Albert Einstein and Audrey Hepburn and more recently by actresses Kate Winslet and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, among other high-profile celebrities, a watch brand that is synonymous with iconic style and intelligent design, bringing us a blend of luxury and performance is Longines.
Think vintage glamour and heritage style meets precision engineering and innovative design. So, the next time you’re at an important work meeting, rather than pulling out your makeup covered smartphone to check the time, why not show off your designer watch and make a statement about who you are and what you stand for without saying a word!
While you can’t stop time, you can slow it a little when something iconic and exceptional happens if only for a few moments, such as when you fall in love or your child is born; A precious memory is created, and time stands still.
A watch is more than a timekeeper; it’s a memory keeper, and Longines watches can bring a touch of luxury to the everyday and are a definite must have accessory for today, tomorrow and forever which will never go out of fashion!
If you are looking for a memorable gift for that special someone, a watch is always a popular choice as it reflects time spent together and holds great sentimental value. An engravement is always a nice personal touch that jewellers are happy to offer to personalise items purchased in store.
Treat yourself this season and invest in a statement watch – a must have accessory!
