Just like a handbag or a killer pair of shoes, a watch is also an investment buy. Considering you’re likely to wear it everyday, it’s important that the one you settle for is both durable (not necessarily super-expensive) and stylish.

Adding to your ‘arm party’ a watch that is ‘the one’ can be a daunting task, especially when faced with endless choice and varying price tags.

Whether you like to build a collection of watches depending on your wardrobe (remember, its not only about telling the time, but making a style statement, too), or want to invest in a classic piece without breaking the bank, check out our top 5 snap-worthy watches for some serious wrist candy inspo.

Touch of androgyny

The steel and gold tone and large round face lend to a masculine feel, whilst the diamante embellishment adds a hint of feminity. The perfect accessory for lifting a clean-lined, modern outfit; it’s also a firm favourite of the blogosphere!

Classic wrist candy 

Looking for a cost-effective take on a classic? The design of this River Island Sonia Bling watch reminds us a little bit of the classic Cartier Panthere watch, minus the painful price tag, of course.

Lasting Leather

Leather strap watches are an ultimate investment: scratch resistant, and they look better with time (pun not intended). This one by Fossil in nude leather will complement any outfit perfectly.
