Why Watches Are A Timeless Fashion Must-Have

Hello everyone! These past couple of weeks I've had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with the folks over at the French watch brand, Michel Herbelin. I know we live in a digital age and most of us look at our phones whenever we want the time, but there is just something about watches that I absolutely love. Michel Herbelin and I would like to illustrate how watches are such a timeless fashion accessory.  I've created two Polyvore sets inspired by two of the women featured in Jean-Luc Godard films during the nouvelle vague era, Anna Karina and Jean Seberg. I personally find French fashion simple, effortless, classic, and timeless just like the Michel Herbelin's Sonates watch. I really hope that you enjoy this creative collaboration as much as I enjoyed the whole process.

Of all the fashion pieces that you’ll ever buy, a good watch is something that is hard to replace. A popular luxury item for celebrities and high street style queens alike, it’s worth taking the time to find one that you can truly fall in love with. Let’s take a look at why watches are such a fantastic addition to anyone’s collection of accessories.

A high quality piece will last you a lifetime

Creating high quality watches is an art in itself, and some people dedicate their entire lives to crafting the most beautiful timepieces that you could ever imagine. As such, there’s a wide range of quality watches out there that will last a lifetime. If you choose a classically stylish piece, you could be wearing it for years to come. For extra peace of mind, look out for retailers that offer a guarantee with your purchase.

They never go out of fashion

Trends change and come and go over time, but watches always remain a firm favorite among fashionistas. This considered, it’s again worthwhile looking for a stylish and understated watch rather than just going with what’s currently being seen on the catwalks.

They can be worn with any outfit

Whether you’re dressing up for a special occasion or just going to the office, a watch is one item that can always be worn. Investing in a high quality piece seems even more worthwhile when you consider just how often it’ll make an appearance in your look. Again, this is another reason why you should choose a simpler watch without any lavish fashion designs or high trend features.

They have function as well as style

Looking great may be at the top of your agenda, but how many fashion pieces do you own that also have a use of their very own? Aside from the very obvious telling of the time, watches these days often have a number of inbuilt functions that can help you to manage your day-to-day life. You can also find watches that are water resistant, which are the ideal option if you enjoy sports yet still want to look your very best.

They can be a sensible investment

If you buy a high quality timepiece from a reputable watchmaker, it’s likely that it will never lose its value. In years to come, it could even be worth a lot more than what you paid for it. For this reason, it’s always worth keeping the original box and any documentation that you also receive. Even if you don’t wish to sell it on in the future, it could make a very nice gift for your children one day!

As you can see, there are many reasons why you should invest in a good watch. Coupling style and fashion with function and practicality, it’s worth spending a little bit more to get the piece that you've been dreaming of.

Do you wear a watch on a daily basis? How did you select your piece so you know that it’ll stand the test of time?

Disclaimer: I am not being compensated or being gifted a watch for this post. This was just a creative collaboration between Michel Herbalin and myself. The Polyvore sets, as well as the theme, were created by me, while the article was written by Michel Herbelin. Here's more about the author:
