It’s really quite simple - a great timepiece can define your look. It can tell someone about your personality and give an insight to who you as a person might be. Although that might sound philosophical, it’s absolutely true.
When it comes to watch trends right now, anything goes. If you feel like a boyfriend style or a vintage 1920’s look, it’s in style. Perhaps you like a bracelet jewelry look too? That’s also in fashion. Oversized, mid-sized or even a pocket watch, where does the list end?
Below I have compiled a list of the top five watches $1,500 and under based on the latest trends. Try them, love them, and buy them! You may even want to get the same watch in two or even three colors, would that be so bad?
