My whole life, I have worn cheap and childish watches. Way back when, I had the Mickey Mouse watch that sang “It’s a small world after all.” From there, I graduated to a Timex watch with a rastafarian color themed velcro band. As an adult, I have worn a $60 plastic watch…. every…. single… day. Some might say it is time to move on to something nicer and more grown up , but I like the fact that all my watches are simple, cheap, and do their thing. Plus, I prefer inexpensive watches to “nice” ones as the nicer ones are too much of a status symbol, especially in places like New York. Heyyyyy, check out my GOLD ROLEX — if I can afford 30K on my wrist to tell the time, guess how rich I AM???? So, plastic watches are more my jam.
Recently, I have been itching to look a tad bit more polished, refined, and sophisticated. As a loyal fan of the New York Times style section, I noticed the below three weekends ago. Chic, modern, classic, and minimalist, the watch is from an Australian label called The Horse. I found my match! Simple, clean, tells the time, and just a little over 100 bucks! Truly a chic, affordable, and reliable way to tell time. SOLD!
Anyone else have a fun watch or accessory to jazz up their summer wardrobe?
