Wound Up

Sure, bangles look great on that dainty wrist of yours, but the click-clacking of metal can be down-right distracting in the boardroom. We know – you’d like an accessory that speaks volumes about your personality and style, and if you can get some functionality as well, you’ll take it. So what’s the perfect accessory to dawn on your wrist, you ask?

A quality timepiece is the most functional fashion accessory professional women can invest in, says Meehna Goldsmith, haute timepiece expert and consultant. “Women deserve a real watch that is worth its value, looks great and is made well,” Goldsmith tells PINK. “We appreciate the originality, quality and sartorial style of clothing. Why settle for anything less with a timepiece. ”

Need a little more than time from your watch? The Casio Databank Watch can store up to 150 telephone numbers and 150 scheduled appointments. Features include world time, a calculator, a stopwatch, timer, alarm, and even an LED light.

You are woman enough to wind any timepiece. Check out these quality mechanical versions: Girard-Perregaux, Parmigiani Fleurier, and Patek Philippe.

Make sure your watch lasts a lifetime. Goldsmith suggests having it serviced twice a year, rewind regularly and avoid extreme temperatures and water (even if it’s water resistant).

If you swapped your bangles for a watch but still need something with a little pizzaz, Bulova and Armitron have great options that’ll keep you on time and looking great.
