TEN WATCHES THAT HAVE PROVEN THEMSELVES TIMELESS
In a digital-first world where we’ve become so dependent on mobile phones and other electronic devices that continually give us access to the time, it’s easy to imagine a world where watches might become obsolete – but there is still such a range of popular fashion watches. When it comes to timeless accessories, watches are at the top of everyone’s list, whether male or female.
The longevity of watches may come from the way they manage to cross the fine line between exquisite jewellery and fine art and are oftentimes handed down as a family heirloom and are passed down through generations. Every watch has a story, from the way it was made, the different mechanisms that make it work, and down to the person who wears the watch every day.
As with any accessory, fashions and taste change. But there are some styles that seem to stand the test of time and are routinely on-trend yet suitable for individual lifestyles. We’ve put together a list of men’s and women’s watches that appear to have stood the test of time.
