I have a new wristwatch. Do you still use them? There was a couple of years (in the beginning of my iPhone period) that I thought I did not need a one anymore. I always brought the phone so If I wanted to know what time was I simply checked the phone. Then one day I realized something was missing. I’m not much in to jewelry, well I can like them (even have a Pinterest board with the theme) but I rarely feel comfortable in earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Wristwatches on the other hand is like some kind of a middle thing between a jewelry and something practical. Don’t need to dig deep down in a purse to check the time either.
I have realized that I’m a wristwatch woman and I have a couple that I switch in between. Most of them are plain, rather classical in style like this Daniel Wellington watch. Daniel Wellington is a quite new Swedish watch brand. Another (successful) Swedish watch brand is Void Watches. Take a look at the AARK Collective watches as well. Urban Trait seem to have a lot of them “design watches”
While we are on the subject I have to mention that the husband is kind of wrist watch geek. So here, a couple of links from him:
Interesting article at a good nerd watch site.
Great site and article about the ultimate watch.
Exciting clock model, the archetype of the pilot watch.
Ultimate Sports Watches.
Nice site if you like cool divers.
UPDATE: A good thing Urban Trait has free worldwide shipping until the end of 2013.
