When it comes to getting dolled up for a night out, our instinct as women is usually to reach for the statement necklace, a cocktail ring or chandelier earrings. While all of these adornments are definitely killer—there’s one that deserves a little more credit: the evening watch.
From simple and delicate to over-the-top and dripping in diamonds, an evening watch adds unexpected sophistication (and a dash of practicality) to an evening look. Just think what might have happened to Cinderella if she’d topped off her ball ensemble with glass slippers and a Harry Winston diamond watch!
You don’t need a Prince Charming to be worthy of your own spectacular wristwear—just a generous Fairy Godmother or a significant chunk of disposable income with which to #treatyourself.
On one end of the high jewelry watch market, we have Tiffany & Co.’s incredible floral cocktail watch, ringing in at just shy of $200,000. With no fewer than 1,000 diamonds, it’s blindingly brilliant. Similarly adorned (but secretively priced) are evening watches from Harry Winston and Cartier.
Also elegantly perfect for evening wear are slim and sexy watches from Piaget, Charriol and even David Yurman. With the holiday approaching, why not guarantee that your wrist will be the talk of the party—and that you’re nothing short of fashionably late.
