A watch need not be expensive in order to look good. Whether you are a collector or just buying a wrist accessory that you can put on with your daily outfit, there are numerous timepieces to choose from; each with its own style, form and function. Below are a few reasonably priced quality pieces that might fit your taste.
The design of this oversized ladies’ timepiece by Kate Spade is inspired by Gramercy Park, a charming neighborhood in Manhattan that was once the home of famous author and poet, Oscar Wilde. The case, similar to the link bracelet, is made of gold-plated metal. The dial displays linear indices that indicate the hours, while the hour and minute hands are in gold tone. Lending a feminine accent to the watch face are the pink second hand and the distinctive spade logo at the 12 o’clock position. A rectangular date display is shown on the left of the 3rd hour marker.
The colors of silver, white and rose gold combine to create an opulent-looking timepiece in the Stuhrling 711.03. The watch has a round stainless steel case that has been layered with 16K rose gold. The strap is made of genuine leather and covered with white satin, featuring a tang buckle in rose gold tone. Two main colors are exhibited on the analog display; an inner portion that is covered with a silvery sand finish and a smooth black outer dial that encircles it. The hour, minute and second hands are in rose gold tone, while the hours are indicated by Arabic numerals and diamond-studded indices. Adding more brilliance to the watch face is a fixed steel bezel that is also embellished with white stones. This watch runs on a Swiss quartz movement and is water resistant up to 50 meters.
The ultra-feminine Anne Klein AK/1010RGLP features a metal case in rose gold tone and a buckled pink calfskin leather strap. The mother-of-pearl dial lends more elegance to the watch face, especially with rose gold tone hour markers that are accented with Swarovski crystals. The hour, minute and second hands, which register the time accurately using a Japanese quartz movement, also have a rose gold color. The bezel that rims the dial is made of metal and is stationary.
The chic design of the MK3317 matches a black ion-plated stainless steel case with a slim chain bracelet fastened with a jewelry clasp. Providing a stylish contrast to the dark background of the black dial are the gold tone linear time markers, as well as the hour, minute and second hands. For its timekeeping function, this watch makes use of a quartz movement. In addition, it has a water resistance depth limit of 50 meters.
The classic design of this dress watch is updated with the application of a few contemporary details. The case is 36 millimeters in diameter and is fabricated from rose gold-colored stainless steel. It is attached to a strap that is crafted from brown leather and has a buckle closure. The white dial is expansive, protected by a scratch-proof mineral crystal lens. On it are displayed the hour markers and hands in rose gold tone. The minutes are indicated in smaller linear indices and are printed in black. This watch utilizes a quartz movement and is water resistant up to 30 meters.
If you have a preference for casually styled gold watches, then the Nixon A099502 is a must-buy. The round-shaped, gold-colored case is attached to a link bracelet that contains a single locking clasp. Completing the shiny ensemble is a golden hued dial that displays the linear hour indices in gold tone. The hour, minute and seconds hands, which keep track of time using a Japanese quartz movement, also have a golden hue. Protecting the dial is a hardened mineral crystal window that is resistant to scratches.
This timepiece exudes understated elegance. The case is stainless steel with a rose gold finish and the strap is made from white calfskin leather. Contained on the white dial are rose gold tone accents, displayed by the hour and minute hands on the primary dial and the hand on the small seconds dial. The hour markers are also in rose gold tone, consisting of line indices and the letters “M,” “A,””R,” and “C.” Markings on the sub-dial are in black, identical in hue to the brand name printed below the 12 o’clock position. The watch is water resistant up to 50 meters and runs on a quartz movement.
