For nearly 10 years or so, I have not been wearing a watch. Danny wears one. And I found myself asking him the time way too often. So I decided a watch would be good for my Christmas present. :) :)
This grey and rose gold beauty is the one that I ended up getting. It's from an Australian watch company called The Horse. (Thanks to our amazing wedding photographer, Rachel Thurston, for telling me about the company.) I've been so, so happy with it.
After the jump, see the other watches I was considering. Including the first two GORGEOUS suggestions by designer and Book/Shop owner, Erik Heywood. I thought I'd share in case you're in the market for a watch this year...
The gorgeous "Max Bill Ladies" piece from Junghans, a German watch company. I almost got this one, but decided to go with a more conservative price. To purchase stateside, you can order online from Amazon. $567.
Two watches by Tsovet. LOVE the boldness! $225.
Timex Original Classic Round. Perfect for fall, especially. $70.
The Swiss watch by Mondaine, patterned after the official Swiss Railways clock. So cool. Danny especially loves this one. $170.65 (via Amazon)
The Saxon Swiss made watch by Larsson & Jennings (of Stockholm & London). I love the timeless look. $477.
Satin Gold Watch by Uniform Wares. $610.
Rose Gold & Grey Rubber. By Uniform Wares. $610.

Any favorites? Any favorite watch makers not listed?
P.S. I think a watch makes such a special gift for significant others or for something special. When I was age 15, I worked at a wedding center in Arizona (The Wright House) and on my last day before heading to college, the owner held a dinner in my honor and gave me a nice watch. I'll never forget it.
