My father has a pretty impressive collection of luxury and vintage luxury watches, so why I remember his old Timex, the one he has had since I was a little girl is beyond me. He still wears it sometimes (for sports and fishing trips) and swears he can always count it to run.
Personally, I have never owned a Timex. I guess the snobby side of me thought they were too pedestrian. Don’t get me wrong, I had a SWATCH watch or two when I
was young, but from a fairly early age I preferred having one really good watch (say a Cartier) to a jewelry box full of so-so time-keepers. Thanks Mom.
So I now have two high-end watches both of which are stainless steel (silver). Yet, I have been secretly wanting a huge men’s-style gold watch for months. I love the way they look with a crisp white men’s style button-down with rolled sleeves. However, spending (or receiving) an expensive lust-worthy luxury watch is not in the cards for me right now.
This past summer Timex introduced it’s first fashion trend director in an effort to become a little more fashion-forward. Amy E. Goodman has personally singled out the most wearble trends and has brought them to Timex. Including my new menswear-oversized gold watch (see left) which I adore and have not had off my wrist for weeks! It looks like all the other luxury watches I have coveted and unless you look really close for the brand, you would never tell the difference. I’m just afraid my husband may try to borrow it. Thankfully I have had links taken out to fit my smaller wrist. All of the new stylish Timex watches range from $55-$145 so you can treat yourself or others to a few.
