reader's question: wrist watch

Dear NY Spender,
I was putting together my Christmas wish list this afternoon for the hubby and realized that I needed your guidance. It has been about five years since I've owned a wrist watch and believe most individuals rely on their hand held devices to inform them of the time. So, is a wrist watch a do or don't for an office type setting job? If it is a do, any suggestions under $100?

Thanks,
Your #1 CA Fan

Yes, yes, yes!
Sure, a wrist watch is definitely a do! Why would it be a don't, especially in an office environment? You need to make sure you know when five o'clock comes around so that you can get out of there not a minute too late! ;)

For under $100 I immediately think about Swatch watches: the selection is huge, and the different styles should be able to accommodate your taste. But let me show you some examples:


This is BE FOUND, it has a very classic look and it only costs $90!






















For a more modern twist you can try ENTANGLED SHINE, for $110.





















For a more whimsical look, you can wear something like NIGHT-BLOOM at $110.





















And finally, for something more heavy metal, you can go with what's on my wrist right now, the CIEL CLAIR VIOLET for $110.

But don't let me spoil the surprise for you, here is a link to the Swatch store
Have fun and let me know if you find something you like.

Good call on that night bloom watch

I love unique watches, and that looks great!

Style on a String ..because style has nothing to do with money.

The watches are beautiful. If I could pick only one I would go for the "Entangled."
